Children's book – My Private Parts Belong to Me!
This book teaches children how to protect their bodies and their privacy. It clarifies their rights over their own body and explains how to avoid potential harm. The friendly and approachable story addresses this vital yet sensitive subject in a format crafted especially for children in the primary grades.
Guy and Tammy come home from school and tell Mom that they learned about the private parts of their body: parts that "belong only to us, and no one else is allowed to touch them." Mom and the kids talk about it, and along the way they learn what private parts are, as well as what kind of touch is permitted and what's not. They also learn about good secrets and bad ones, and whom they can approach for help.
