LISTEN: Mums and Dads in Dorset Urged to Talk to their Children about Sexual Abuse

1:43pm 8th July 2013

A leading charity is calling on more parents in Dorset to warn their children about sexual abuse.

It's after a YouGov poll found half the parents of 5 to 17 year olds had never spoken to their sons or daughters about the issue.

Awareness of sexual abuse has risen dramatically since the vast catalogue of assaults committed by Jimmy Savile were revealed last year, with the NSPCC's helpline experiencing a huge rise in calls.[2] But while parents want to help their children stay safe from sexual abuse many don't always have the confidence to explain how.

Today (Monday 8th July) the NSPCC launched a new campaign called the "Underwear Rule" to help parents talk to their children.

Jeanette Chipping represents the NSPCC in Dorset and says using simple language is the best way forward, you can listen to the advert by clicking the player below.
