Resources for Parents

Brigham Young University recognizes that parents' and guardians' desire to protect their children is far-reaching.  “Children are an heritage of the Lord” (Psalm 127:3).  As parents and guardians teach and nurture their children, they empower them to recognize boundaries, to know who a safe adult is, and to trust their own intuitions, giving them vital tools to help prevent or stop abuse.
