Make a habit of coming to school unannounced during the one-on-one practices or other times to become ‘known’ as an attentive parent. Be present at games and practice. If you can’t be there, ask another parent to be the ‘stand-in’ parent. Tell the coach who is ‘standing-in.’ Trust and honor your child’s intuitive reactions. If your child feels uncomfortable with someone, respect their intuitive sense. Teach your child to avoid going into a teacher’s office alone-many children unwittingly go into a teacher’s office at the teacher’s request to help carry books or equipment-with the door closed and alone with the teacher, the child is abused.
