How to Respond to a Child Who Discloses Abuse:


Listen to the child carefully and avoid expressing your own views.


Tell the child that it’s not his/her fault and that you are glad he/she told you.


Contact local law enforcement or SD Child Protective Services at 877-244-0864 to report the abuse. In case of an emergency, call 911.
