Abstract: Two hundred and twelve Australian mothers completed an online survey examining features of mother–child communication about child sexual abuse prevention. Two-thirds (67.5 percent) of respondents had discussed child sexual abuse prevention with their children, with proportions varying according to age range (highest for mothers with children aged 5–12 years) and only-child status (lowest for mothers of only children). The number of topics discussed with their children differed according to child gender (greater number of topics discussed by mothers with both girls and boys) and age range (greater number of topics discussed by mothers with children aged 5–12 years). These findings provide new insights into mother–child communication about child sexual abuse prevention. Abstract published by arrangement with Taylor and Francis.
