What should my child know about the interview?

It is helpful to inform your child that someone wishes to talk with him or her about what was reported. It is important to reassure your child and give him or her permission to talk freely; however it is equally important not to rehearse with your child or tell your child what to say. It is important to reinforce that the child will be in a safe place and the adults that they are visiting will let them know exactly what is happening.
