Dr Camilla Knight describes the critical roles that parents play in supporting their children through their sporting journey.

Most children benefit greatly from their involvement in games. Nevertheless, in football, as in any other sport, children may be abused or harmed, irrespective of their age, gender, race, culture, religion, ability or sexual orientation.

Although football child abuse scandals reported in the press have focused on sexual abuse, it is important to understand that this is not the only form of abuse that children may experience.
