Prevent abuse and exploitation by protecting children in everyday scenarios.
PAXA Pointers is a curriculum that provides effective evidence-based strategies to protect children in the following scenarios: Babysitters, Playdates, Schools, Sleepovers and Online Safety. Child sexual abuse often operates within a tragic paradox: most parents brush off red-flag behavior and reduce scrutiny on “people that they trust.” The P.A.X.A. Pointers Curriculum is designed to address “blind spots'' that occur with trusted individuals in close proximity or virtually online. The CDC informs us that resources for child sexual abuse have mostly focused on treatment for victims; and although these efforts are crucial, little investment has been made in primary prevention of child sexual abuse before it occurs.
