Bogat, G. Anne; McGrath, Marianne P.
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v17 n5 p651-62 Sep-Oct 1993
This study investigated 117 preschoolers' perceptions of authority in sexual and benign situations and how these might influence acquisition of sexual abuse prevention concepts. Results indicate that preschool children are able to recognize limits to adult requests to engage in sexual behavior, and their sophistication about these limits increases as a result of program participation.
