To help empower parents to protect their children from sexual harm, Bravehearts’ free Personal Safety Parents’ Guide gives parents and carers insight into the myths and facts about child sexual assault and valuable guidance on personal safety education for their children.

The guide provides tips for keeping children of all ages safe online and simple step-by-step activities for teaching children personal safety, based on Bravehearts’ Ditto Keep Safe Adventure program.

Hetty Johnston AM, Founder and Executive Chair of Bravehearts said, “There is nothing more important than protecting our children and now every parent and carer can ensure they are better informed on the steps they need to take to help protect their children from harm.

“One of the most important things we can do is to empower our children to identify when something doesn’t feel right, and to talk to and tell a trusted adult without fear of consequences.

“As part of National Child Protection Week we’re urging every parent and carer to ensure they download Bravehearts’ free guide so they can teach their children about personal and online safety.”
