It is important to educate our children about personal safety and be aware of the lurking dangers. Share with us how we can teach our children the difference between safe and unsafe touch!
Its not easy to explain good and bad touch to small kids but I found some very good videos for kids to teach.. that really worked well.. apart from that I aske her how was her day and keep communication very friendly. Along with teaching about it its also important to make kids confident so that they can express themselves..
It is very important to teach children the difference between safe and unsafe touch. And, I feel comfortable communication is the key. Parents should playfully teach young children about touches that are a result of love and affection and those that are done with an ulterior motive of causing discomfort. It is also very important to keep this an ongoing conversation. Keep asking your child how his/her day was, did he/she hug a friend, did he/she shake hands with anyone, how did he/she have fun, etc. Once parents explain to them that it is fine to express even if a touch feels uncomfortable, children will not shy from speaking openly about their experiences.
