Educate Families with Hot Chocolate Talk® Child Protection Tools

After the many challenges of this past year, the safety, protection, and well-being of children is paramount in the minds of adults with young people in their lives. During National Child Abuse Prevention Month, Committee for Children’s Hot Chocolate Talk® campaign is here to help you engage your students’ families with free child protection resources. Help equip your students’ families with the tools they need to start important conversations with their children about personal safety and sexual abuse prevention.

As a parent, I know there’s nothing scarier than the thought that your child’s safety or well-being is at risk. And I know that families depend on educators, researchers, and other child safety experts to help them ensure that their children can thrive emotionally, socially, and academically. Thank you for everything you do to help protect the children in your community. Together, we can create a safer, more just world.
