5 Steps to Protecting Children

  • Herrick District Library 300 S. River Holland, MI 49423 (map)

One in 10 children in the U.S. will be sexually abused before the age of 18. Darkness to Light believes that adults are responsible for the safety of children and that adults should be taking proactive steps to protect children from sexual abuse. It is unrealistic to think that a child should be responsible for fending off sexual advances by an adult.


The 5 Steps to Protecting Our Children™ is an introductory guide to help adults protect children from sexual abuse. Using an evidence-informed approach, these guidelines provide simple and practical actions you can take to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.

Together, they form the framework for Darkness to Light’s prevention training program, Stewards of Children®.
