How can we communicate our concerns about the molest society to the children? Having to teach them how to react/behave in such situations where they are taken advantage of? TIA

This topic is a challenge for parents around the world. Cultural considerations aside it is also the ability of the parent or guardian to handle the communication effectively. Depending on the age of the child the means of communicating are important. For younger children under five visual aids should be consider for children older text and imagery helps. The key message should be knowing where they can be or can't be touched and who may or may not. More important is for them to be able to report any inappropriate actions by others to you without the fear of being judged or reprimanded. A quick internet search will give you many techniques of communicating that professionals share. Choose what you personally feel is easy for you to explain because if you aren't capable of handling questions from the child you then need to ensure someone else maybe so preparing yourself is equally important. Ultimately there's no one size fits all solution. You are the best judge of what your child can or can't comprehend and need to use those methods.
