Even though our focus is being impacted significantly by the coronavirus situation, we must try our best to make sure we continue to keep an eye out for red flags in terms of prevention of child sexual abuse. Unfortunately bad things can still happen even in a crisis.

It is unfortunate, but bad things are happening all around us even during this awfully difficult time for our country. In some situations, it is happening even more since all of us are focused on what’s happening with the COVID-19 pandemic. I hear in the news every day that even though many of us are struggling to stay afloat during this difficult period, there are many out there who are trying to scam good people. It is hard to believe that there are people out there who are trying to take advantage of this situation in a negative manner while there are many who are risking their lives every day to save and help others.

There is no evidence that a pandemic like this will cause more incidents of child sexual abuse, but it is understandable that many of us are having to continually adjust to different situations and demands caused by the pandemic. And that can sometimes take focus away from other important things such as maintaining a close watch on red flags that can lead to child sexual abuse. Moreover, since children are more exposed to online activities during this period, we also need to keep an eye out for online predators – they are also out there looking for possible victims. Let’s try our best to keep all the children safe.
