Talking to your children about personal safety and what to do it someone attempts to touch them sexually is extremely important. Just as important is for adults to learn more about grooming tactics and behaviors. Additionally, it is time for parents and family of children to accept responsibilities to introduce "levels of trust" and be prepared to trust instincts. Telling people "no" even when you don't have proof or concrete reasons. Silent Spirits is launching two adult trainings in January of 2013. "Silent Spirits" teaches non-offending adults how to assess their families, friends and community for vulnerability to sex abuse. "The Grooming Game" teaches non-offending adults how to assess for sex offender risk and action steps to block access. "Sex Offender's have created the grooming game. They pick the player's and create the rules and we don't even know we are in the 'game'." Savenia Falquist - Founder
