Preety Antil, Renu Bala

In this descriptive study, Parents’ views about child sexual abuse were investigated. Interviews were conducted with a sample of 40 Indian adults who identified as the parent or caregiver of a child/children aged 8-12. The study explored (1) parents’ knowledge & awareness about child sexual abuse, (2) the child sexual abuse precaution they take to protect their children. (3) Their attitudes towards child sexual abuse prevention education in schools and (4) the instruction to the children to save themselves from sexual abuse. Data analysis provided four key themes in these four areas: awareness; precautions for themselves to take, instructions for the children to save themselves from this behaviour, behaviour modification. The findings may be useful in assisting parents and providers of child sexual abuse prevention programs to better understand vigilant behaviour of parents’ towards child sexual abuse.
