April is Child Abuse Prevention Month

In honor of National Child Abuse Prevention Month, Committee for Children is offering our Hot Chocolate Talk campaign as a free online resource. The Hot Chocolate Talk is designed to help families navigate conversations about child sexual abuse by providing a research-based conversation how-to guide. Even in these difficult times, we know many parents and caregivers are still looking for child sexual abuse prevention materials. The time in the coming weeks may be an opportunity for families to start these critically important safety conversations.

As a former educator, I’ve been in your shoes. I know the feeling of wanting to support your students and their families in times of uncertainty. We want to continue to help you support them, and we hope the Hot Chocolate Talk will be helpful for everyone as we navigate this new normal together.

Watch the Hot Chocolate Talk in action and visit our revamped  Educator Resources page.

Help Start the Conversation

Take your dedication to kids and their families even further by taking part in this year’s Hot Chocolate Talk campaign.

Whether it’s sharing resources from HotChocolateTalk.org with parents and caregivers, posting about the campaign on social media, or downloading our how-to guide for talks with your own children, you can make a difference.

With the help of educators like you, our organization has advocated for child protection for more than four decades. We greatly appreciate your continued support of this important work.
