5 Tips for Parents

1. GET EDUCATED: Education is the most important tool for combatting misconduct. Look for resources that can help you understand how abuse occurs and what you can do about it.

2. CREATE HEALTHY BOUNDARIES: It’s important to establish healthy boundaries between athletes and coaches and have clear expectations about the coach’s role. A coach is a teacher & mentor, not a friend or peer.

3. IDENTIFY & ADDRESS HIGH-RISK AREAS: For misconduct to take place, an offender needs privacy, access, and control. Some high-risk areas include travel, locker rooms & electronic communication.

4. SPEAK UP: If you recognize questionable behaviors, say something!

5. TALK TO YOUR KIDS!: Physical & sexual misconduct can be a hard topic for parents to talk about with their children. Having these conversations is extremely important in helping your child from becoming a victim of abuse.
