Prevent abuse: Go with your gut

A big question I get from parents is: How can I keep my child safe?

While I have a book on the subject coming out soon, there is one thing we can all do right now to make our kids safer:

Go with your gut.

If you are in a situation and things seem odd, they probably are. If you have to be talked into taking yourself or your child places that make you feel “hinky” or uncomfortable, go with that gut feeling that tells you to stay away. Never rationalize yourself or your child into danger.

As the commercials say: Most of your immune system lives in your gut. When it tries to tell you something, listen.

Maybe it’s trying to protect you from more than germs.
