If your child discloses, cover the BASES

As a parent or caregiver, learning that your child has been sexually abused is likely one of the most difficult things to go through, and it’s absolutely understandable that you wouldn’t know how to respond or react to a disclosure. KCSARC’s Family Services Specialists share a set of tips to help parents and caregivers respond to a disclosure of sexual abuse from a child. Through the acronym BASES, you’ll learn what key things to do, and why they are so valuable to a child survivor: Believe, Affirm, Support, Empower, and Safety.

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.
