Approximately 20% of girls, and 8% of boys will experience sexual abuse before their 18th birthday (Pereda, et al, 2009). Parents, caregivers, and educators all have a duty of care to protect children by teaching them age-appropriate Body Safety skills. These skills empower children, and go a long way in keeping them safe from abuse -- ensuring they grow up as assertive and confident teenagers and adults.
Teaching children, from a young age, that they are the boss of their body and what they say goes is incredibly empowering. The books and lesson plans included in this class set explore body boundaries, respect, consent, feelings and emotions, choices, recognizing bullying behaviours and Body Safety.
Learning these important and life-long skills are crucial in developing children's confidence and will help them to recognize their rights -- especially in regards to their body.
