An Ounce of Prevention

The above is a 33 minute video professionally recorded at one of Rabbi Yakov Horowtiz's abuse prevention talks. It teaches parents how to have "the most important conversation they will ever have with their kids"

Many people who are involved in protecting children from sex abuse feel that the only way we will stop this tragedy of abuse is to circumvent our institutions,take the case directly to the parents, and have them train their kids about personal safety.

I am therefore pleased to post this video as a public service and recommend that parents with 'camp age' children speak to them this week before camp starts. It is a message of paramount importance.
