Protective behaviours

Body safety

96% of children are abused by someone known and trusted

1 in 4 girls are sexually abused before they turn 18 years of age

1 in 7 boys are sexually abused before they turn 18 years of age

Teaching children Protective Behaviours (Body Safety) in age and developmentally appropriate ways doesn't take away a child's innocence, it helps to protect it.  


To prevent abuse, reduce violence and promote safety and wellbeing, protective behaviours education focuses on developing life skills of empowerment, self-awareness, communication, self-esteem, problem solving, persistence and assertiveness.
