What can I do to prevent a child from getting involved?

There are a number of ways in which you can prevent your child from becoming involved in prostitution:

  • Communicate with your child on an ongoing basis.
  • Know your child’s friends; get names and phone numbers.
  • Maintain contact with teachers regarding attitude or behaviour changes.
  • Set expectations appropriate to your child’s age and needs.
  • Be supportive and involved in your child’s life.
  • Listen to your child; make your child feel valued and important.
  • Know where to go for help and support.
  • If you are concerned that your child is at risk, keep notes with names and descriptions of new friends, licence plates of cars, places they hang out, etc.
