“My;Body;Belongs to Me” It's really important for;parents to start empowering their kids with the skills and knowledge to stay safe.;Knowledge might be the one difference that might save them from being a victim.;I understand a lot of parents find it difficult to discuss thinking -;;What should I say? How should I say it? I can't even imagine anything bad happening to my child—it's too scary to think about, etc. But avoiding it won't do anyone any good, instead keeping an open line of communication can make a difference in a child's life.


Here are a few body safety skills that we should teach our kids from the beginning:

Teach your children the proper names of their body parts -;As soon as your child begins to talk, name each body part correctly including the genitals. Explain to your child that their 'private parts' are the parts under their bathing suit.

Appropriate and inappropriate touch;-While you are teaching your child the names of body parts, also tell them that no one should touch or show private parts. Talk about a couple of exceptions. Explain how a parent, babysitter, or grandma may need to help her wipe after going to the bathroom. A doctor may have to look at your private parts to make sure everything is healthy – but you will always have a parent with you in a doctor’s appointment.

Teach children that;no one should ever take pictures of private parts, or be shown pictures of other people’s private parts.

Build a body safety network;-Help your kids choose 3-5 adults they could go to if someone breaks a body safety rule. Help them identify people both within and outside your family. Make it clear that children do not get in trouble if someone else breaks a body safety rule; it’s important that they tell someone in their body safety network. Make sure you tell the adults who have been selected as part of your child’s safety network. note: at least one person should not be a family member.

Talk to your child about all different types of feelings –;Discuss with them what does it feel like to be happy, sad, angry, scared? Children who are taught to verbalize their feelings are more Intune to the messages their body tells them. e.g. 'I felt really sad when … pushed me over.' This way your child will be more able to verbalize how they are feeling if someone does touch them inappropriately.

We Don’t Look, Touch, Or Play Games With Each Other’s Private Parts -;Private parts are the parts of our bodies covered by a bathing suit and are kept out of view.

No One Should Be Asking them To Keep A Secret.;Especially if it is about private parts. When someone touches us in an unsafe or confusing way. They might ask you to keep it a secret, and might be extra nice, or give us presents to keep the secret. That is a bad secret, and;it is not okay to keep it.


Empower your child to speak up if something feels wrong –;Teach them “no, go, tell”.;Its;an easy way for children to remember what to do is to teach them, “No, Go, Tell.”

No – Say no or stop loudly so the person can hear you.

Go – Run away from the person and find a nearby safe adult.

Tell – Tell that adult and me what happened so we can help keep you safe.


Reinforce to your child that they are the 'boss of their body' and they do not have to kiss or hug a person if they don't want to. It;is important to emphasize to children that it is never their fault if someone touches them in a way they do not want.;Their parents will always trust them no matter what.
