The Hot Chocolate Talk is a bold public awareness campaign created by Committee for Children, designed to help families start the conversation about preventing child sexual abuse; to offer warmth and comfort to understandably uncomfortable conversations when discussing unwanted touching and private body parts.

While it’s natural to feel awkward at the thought of broaching the subject with your child, the good news is that the Hot Chocolate Talk provides simple, research-based conversation starters to help you weave these critical safety conversations into everyday interactions you have with your children such as during bedtime, reading time, and at meals.
