COACH SEXUAL ABUSE
What are the warning signs of Child Sexual Abuse by a Coach?
Most children are abused by someone they know and trust, according to the American Psychological Association. An estimated 60% of perpetrators are known to the child but not family members: family friends, babysitters, child care providers, neighbors or even coaches.
Vigilant parenting is the first line of defense in preventing abuse, experts say. Therefore, it is essential to recognize the red flags that should lead to further investigation.
