Children need a voice that will be heard. Listen, observe and be that voice. The easiest way to tell if a child has been harmed — emotionally, sexually, physically, medically or educationally — is to listen. If children tell you they’re being hurt or inappropriately touched or if a parent gives you information that leads you to be concerned, take action.
Don’t attempt to solicit additional detailed information by asking the child questions. Your responsibility is to allow the child’s words to be heard by professionals trained to investigate abuse and neglect.
