Simply Safe Kids: Intro
The Right Way to Teach Body Boundaries and Safety
Do you never let them online? Remove them from all extra curricular activities? Ban sleepovers? Never let them develop relationships?!
You can't be there 24/7, so equipping your child to recognise and report uncomfortable or inappropriate situations is the best thing you can do to let them live a full and safe life.
But how do you start? What do you say?
But your child didn't quite 'get it' and you're not certain that it 'sunk in'.
You know how important it is, but what if you get it wrong? Could it do more harm than good?
You don't know:
- How to start the conversation
- What the right thing to say is
- How you will know that it's worked
