Tangible Takeaway: The “What if?” Game

What if you could spend the day with your favorite celebrity—who would you choose? The “What if?” game is a helpful tool that KCSARC’s Family Services Specialists recommend to parents and caregivers (and also use themselves, as parents!) to start conversations and to build strong decision-making skills. You can use scenarios and hypotheticals to have fun, silly conversations, or more serious talks about interpersonal skills and preparation for any challenging issues your child may encounter. Check out https://www.kcsarc.org/100conversations for more useful tools on how to start conversations with young folks about healthy relationships and sexuality.

5 Sexual Grooming Behaviors

A concept that has come up in multiple episodes thus far is “grooming,” or the deliberate effort to create a trusting relationship with a child and community with the ultimate intent of sexual abuse. It’s work that is manipulative and gradual, and often very subtle. And though it can be extremely challenging to identify the actions of a potential offender, it is helpful to understand commonalities between the choice methods of offenders. KCSARC’s Family Services Specialists and Prevention Services Coordinator discuss five common behaviors that appear in the grooming of a child and community before a sexual abuse occurs.
