A10: Block & report the person/messages. The messages may come from someone they know, so ensure your child knows that you are a safe person to ask for help. #NCAPM #SAAPM twitter.com/thorn/status/1…
Though grooming can take many different forms, it often follows a similar pattern. #NCAPM #SAAPM
One tool common to those who sexually abuse minors is grooming: manipulative behaviors that help them gain access to a potential victim, coerce them to agree to the abuse, and reduce the risk of being caught. #NCAPM #SAAPM
If you have been a victim of child sexual abuse or if you’re an adult concerned about a child in your life, the National Sexual Assault Hotline can help. It's anonymous, confidential, & free. Call 800.656.HOPE or visit online.rainn.org to get help. 24/7 #NCAPM #SAAPM
A8: There are many reasons a child may not disclose. The perpetrator may have threatened the safety of them or their family. The child may not have the language to describe what happened, feel ashamed, or worry about getting in trouble. #NCAPM #SAAPM twitter.com/thorn/status/1…
A7: A few simple things parents can do to help prevent dangerous internet activity: Turn on “safe search” for web browsers, ensure social media accounts are set to private, have conversations about information that is okay to share & who is safe to talk to online. #NCAPM #SAAPM twitter.com/thorn/status/1…
A6(cont.): Know the warning signs of “grooming” such as giving special attention to the child, giving gifts & spending time alone with them. #NCAPM #SAAPM Learn more here: rainn.org/news/grooming-…
A6(cont.): It’s important to have honest, age-appropriate conversations with your children about consent so they know you are a safe person to come to. If you suspect a child is being harmed, learn how to report it and safely intervene. #NCAPM #SAAPM
A6: Most children are sexually abused by a family member or trusted adult. If a child you know discloses abuse to you, provide an empathetic response, take it seriously, & report it. Your reaction can mean the difference between helping the child or the abuse continuing. #NCAPM twitter.com/thorn/status/1…
A5 (cont.): It is never too late to get help & begin healing from this trauma. If you have been a victim of child sexual abuse, the National Sexual Assault Hotline can help. #NCAPM Get anonymous, confidential, free help 24/7; call 800.656.HOPE or visit online.rainn.org
A5(cont.): Other effects may include gastrointestinal issues and headaches, difficulties establishing and maintaining interpersonal relationships, increased risk for future revictimization, and substance use concerns. #NCAPM #SAAPM
A5: There can be mental, emotional, physical, and social health impacts from untreated CSA trauma. This can include: depression, anxiety, eating disorders, PTSD, or prolonged feelings of guilt and shame. #NCAPM #SAAPM twitter.com/MissingKids/st…
4: Reporting the material to CyberTipline is step one: report.cybertip.org @MissingKids has a great resource specifically about coerced photos, commonly known as “sextortion”: missingkids.org/theissues/sext… #NCAPM #SAAPM twitter.com/MissingKids/st…
A4. Report it to @MissingKids. Remember: Never share CSAM, even in an effort to report it. This can inadvertently make removing the content more difficult, and continue to traumatize the victim. #NCAPM twitter.com/MissingKids/st…

A3(cont.): Boys may not report their victimization or seek help after being exploited or abused. Their victimization is likely higher than what is reported in official stats. #NCAPM #SAAPM
A3: Boys make up 30% of the victims in the INTERPOL child sexual exploitation image database. They are vulnerable to grooming & extortion schemes, esp. on platforms where offenders may friend them pretending to be a peer of their own age, such as a gaming site. #NCAPM #SAAPM twitter.com/MissingKids/st…
A2: Have the conversation in a comfortable place, use vocabulary the child will understand, and keep the lines of communication open. #NCAPM #SAAPM We have a resource about this made just for kids: rainn.org/articles/i-am-… twitter.com/MissingKids/st…
A1(cont.): It’s important that children knows there is a trusted adult they can tell if anyone ever asks for intimate images from them because the image may end up living on the internet forever. #NCAPM #SAAPM
A1(cont.):Online exploitation can also include images that offenders acquire through grooming children they meet online and extorting from them through bribes or threats. #NCAPM #SAAPM
A1: Most online images of children are crime scene photos of sexual abuse committed by a family member or trusted adult. These images are widely traded online & thousands of child victims are waiting to be identified & rescued from these abusive situations. #NCAPM #SAAPM twitter.com/MissingKids/st…
Thank you for hosting this chat today! We created & operate the National Sexual Assault Hotline, which supports survivors and their loved ones every day. It’s a safe place for children to get help anonymously. #NCAPM #SAAPM twitter.com/MissingKids/st…
Respect means checking in with your partner regularly to make sure that they are still on the same page and feeling comfortable. Learn all five #ConsentRules in honor of the last day of #SAAPM: rainn.org/articles/conse…!
It means that consent DOES look like: ✅ Confirming that there is reciprocal interest throughout ✅ Letting your partner know that it's ok to stop at any time ✅ Accepting an answer of “no” without asking again #SAAPM #ConsentRules
It means that consent DOESN'T look like: 🚫 Pressuring someone by repeatedly asking or using fear or coercion. 🚫 Continuing with a partner who is disengaged, non-responsive, or upset 🚫 Assuming that clothes, flirting, or kissing is an invitation for mor#SAAPMA#ConsentRulesles
Enthusiastic consent is a model for understanding consent that focuses on a positive expression of consent. Simply put, it means looking for the presence of a “yes” rather than the absence of a “no.” #SAAPM #ConsentRules
Respect! It's the final Consent Rule that we're sharing this Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month. Honor each other by respecting your partner's boundaries—one way to do this is to practice enthusiastic consent!⁠ #SAAPM #ConsentRules
Our vp of public policy Camille Cooper wrote about this subject for @NSVRC's #SAAPM blog. Read it here: twitter.com/RAINN/status/1…
It's the last day of #SAAPM and we're discussing online child sexual abuse. Join us later today between 2-3pm ET twitter.com/MissingKids/st…
We can and must do more to protect kids in every aspect of their lives. @NSVRC #SAAPM ow.ly/wWdv50EAYjY
Remember, you have the right to withdraw consent at any point if you feel uncomfortable💙 Learn more about the#ConsentRuless this#SAAPMM:rainn.org/articles/conse…Q
Boundaries can change over time as you grow and experience new things. So what was okay recently, may not be okay today or tomorrow.⁠ It's important to check in, look for non-verbal cues, and make space for your partner to say no. #ConsentRules #SAAPM
"Ask Every Time" doesn't just mean at the start of the activity. It's important to check in periodically, and make sure you have consent before escalating or changing activities. #ConsentRules #SAAPM

In honor of #DenimDay, learn RAINN's 5 #ConsentRules for getting, confirming and honoring consent: RAINN.org/articles/conse…
The women justices came into court the next day wearing their jeans in protest. And we join them today because consent is freely given, enthusiastic, and constantly communicated—what you're wearing, has nothing to do with it. #DenimDay #ConsentRules #SAAPM
The campaign began after a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a rape conviction was overturned because they believed that since the victim was wearing tight jeans, she must have helped the person who raped her remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. #DenimDay #SAAPM
Today is #DenimDay! Started by our friends at @PeaceOvrViolnce, it's why RAINN, advocates, and survivors across the country are wearing denim with a purpose. Keep reading to learn more⬇️
"Coming forward helps prove that this is everywhere, it’s systemic, and so much more common than we would like to admit.”⁠—Drew, survivor. Read his story this #SAAPM: ow.ly/enaB50Etqqb
