Nearly 11 million children under age 5 in the United States are in some type of child care setting every week. As a child care provider you know the tremendous responsibility involved in protecting these children.
While most adults who apply to work in child care programs model and reinforce healthy boundaries, there are others who do not recognize them. Some of these adults cross over adult-child sexual boundaries themselves and some are permission givers who fail to respond appropriately when they witness other adults violating boundaries with children and teens.
Boundary violations occur quite frequently, but are most often not reported, putting children in child care programs at continued risk.
In addition, an estimated 6% of adults in the general population are sexually attracted to children. This 6% apply in higher numbers for jobs in child care where they will have greater access to children.
20 years of research and new methodology have created the most technologically advanced solution to the problem of staff and volunteers who violate sexual boundaries with children.
