Dear Mom/Dad:

I know you’re just trying to protect me, but how come we don’t ever talk about what’s happening to the kids I read about in the news? You may not realize it, but I see the news all day long…every time I check my Instagram and Snapchat, or pull up Google.  And practically every day I see where some grown up is getting arrested for touching a kid; you know…on their privates.

I’m super confused about it because usually it’s a grown up that the kid knows…like a coach, teacher or minister. Even sometimes their own parents or step-parents! OMG.

Could this happen to me? What should I do if it does? We’ve never talked about this, so I don’t even know if you know about this. Would I get in trouble for letting it happen? I know you’re just trying to protect me, but I wish I knew what to do or who I could talk to.

Love –

Your son/daughter
