Teach your children the concept of “total body safety”

Teaching the concept of “total body safety” encompasses all parts of the body, including the head, mouth, legs and arms, which are usually overlooked. Child abuse perpetrators can use any part of the body to stimulate a child or young person, or to arouse themselves. Additionally, it is important to stress to teens the importance of “total body safety” in their relationships with others. Tell them, “Just because a person is a close friend, or even a girlfriend or boyfriend, that does not give them a right to touch you in a way that makes you feel uncomfortable.”
