Ø  Keeping them safe is the most important consideration. Tell children not to fight to protect their belongings against bullies.
Ø  To tell. Reassure your children that no matter what happens, you will not be angry with them and that you want them to tell you of any incident.
Ø  To be believed. Children need to be believed and supported, especially in cases of sexual assault as children very rarely lie about it.

To break rules. Tell children that they have your permission to break all rules to protect themselves and to stay safe.
