A systematic review of studies conducted to assess the impact of these policies indicated that the policies are indeed an effective means in providing children with the knowledge and understanding of child abuse through engaging programs. There are some considered factors that needed to be included to make the programs as successful as possible but overall, these programs did what they sought out to do.
