  • Tell your child they will be visiting a house.
  • Give your child permission to talk with the interviewers.
  • Tell your child it is a safe place to talk openly and honestly.
  • Tell your child that the person they will talk to is someone who talks to kids every day.
  • Try to remain calm.
  • Tell your child you will be in another room during interview, and that you will the not be leaving the CAC.
  • Consider bringing an item that comforts your child, for example a blanket or toy.

Don’t:

  • Promise treats or rewards to your child for talking.
  • Try to answer questions that you don’t know.
