Fun & Games Lure

Bath-time or body contact games like tickling, wrestling and Hide-the-Quarter may be used as an opportunity to exploit children. Since physical contact is normal during these activities, children are often unaware that anything out of the ordinary is happening.

Games that include the use of handcuffs, ropes, duct tape or other restraints prevent children from protecting themselves or escaping.

Prevention
Reassure children that most games involving body contact are perfectly safe and fun to play. However, do reinforce the concept of the Bathing Suit Zone. Explain that inappropriate touching during a game -even by another child - is against the law. Such behavior should be reported to parents or another trusted adult. Children should never allow anyone to handcuff, tie them up or place them in isolation - even during a game.
