How to Educate Kids about
Bad Touch ?
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"

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