The importance of making rules
As parents, we want our children to see us as their allies and teachers, not just the people who lay down the law. But sometimes, rules are more effective — rules are simple and easy to remember, and leave no room for error. When it comes to your child’s safety, rules are critical. And when it comes to your child’s body, rules can help them understand how to protect themselves from predators. Establishing rules about who can see or touch their bodies is an important part of preventing child sexual abuse.
