Child pornography and sexual abuse has become a global problem that reaches into all communities and all countries, according to Maria Schillaci , a psychologist at Save the Children’s Stockholm office.
The handbook offers guidance to parents and adults who are unsure about what to watch out for and who may also feel uncomfortable talking about sex and abuse with children.
The handbook also explains how young children are typically approached by sexual predators on the internet.
But detecting warning signs in children and teenagers can be difficult, Schillaci says.
"It's very easy to confuse the signs of abuse with other fairly common patterns of behaviour amoung teens and Children," she said.
