I find the article a little bit creepy. If we're to do all the things suggested to investigate sexual abuse, it will make us pretty weird.

Why not just be more open with your kids about perverts? And do it in a humorous way. I remember my three nieces watching Shimura Ken and his various pervert sketches on TV. They were all under 10, they laughed, but I think they learned a lot. They weren't afraid to shout "chikan" or "sukebe" with their friends or family. And I think it made them more likely to report any weird behavior to their parents or sisters.
