Child sexual abuse is a worldwide global issue which currently is threatening Indonesian children. The massive number of Child sexual abuse and the various models of the cases such as intra-familial sexual abuse, child prostitution, online sexual exploitation of children, and much more put Indonesia in the emergency of Child sexual abuse condition. In this essay, I will propose child sexual abuse prevention in Preschool as a viable solution to address Child sexual abuse in Indonesia and suggest the strategies of implementation which might suit in Indonesia context. This investigation is conducted by reviewing a range of literature which mainly discusses three core concepts; (1) The need for Child sexual abuse prevention in Indonesian preschool, (2) The implementation of Child sexual assault prevention in a global context, (3) The strategies to implement child sexual abuse prevention which might suit in Indonesia. The key finding of my investigation indicates that the taboo perception and lack of sexual education exposure share an essential premise that there is a reciprocal relationship between them. Furthermore, it also suggested from evaluated studies that Child sexual abuse prevention Intervention program effective to enhance self-protection of young children. Two elements should be considered to implement Child sexual abuse prevention intervention program in Indonesia are the prevention program should be in multi-systemic intervention focused, and the sexual education content should be culturally/religiously relevant.
