start early & keep it simple

Do not make it a big deal. Start when the child is approximately 2 years old and is able to understand few things.

Let the child be the owner of his or her own body

Let your child take charge of their own body. Tell them that if they do not want to get hugs and kisses even from any family it is completely okay.

TEACH THE CHILD ABOUT THE PRIVATE PARTS

Never hesitate to tell your child what the private parts are, as these are the parts most of the times involved in bad touch.

NEVER FORCE AFFECTIONS

I have never forced my child to hug or kiss someone if she is not willing to. Never force affections.

HELP THEM TO LEARN HOW TO SAY "NO"

Teach them to say “No”. “No” is a very powerful word, and ideally a person should never touch you once you said “No”.

TEACH THEM WHAT A GOOD TOUCH IS

They should be able to distinguish between a good touch and a bad touch, so that there is no confusion and the child can differentiate easily.

Tell them not to accept anything from a stranger or go with any stranger ever

They should understand that they should not take anything from a stranger, even if it is their favorite ice cream or chocolate.

Tell them not to hide anything from you especially when told to do so

When someone has a bad intention he or she will scare the child and tell them not to report it to anyone.

Read books or show them videos

There are really good books available which you can read with your child and explain things to them.

Make them believe that it was not their mistake

Most of the times the predator makes the child believe that somehow it was the child’s mistake, and the innocent child believes it.

My Safe Circle

A safe circle is an imaginary circle created for the child which will include all those people the child can trust.
