If you're a parent working outside of the home!

IF YOU'RE A PARENT WORKING OUTSIDE OF YOUR HOME, THIS VIDEO IS FOR YOU!

Here are the things you can teach your kids if they are under the care of a step-parent, family, friends, babysitters, basically anyone other than yourself.

1- Explain to them what body autonomy and boundaries are.

2- Talk about private parts and how those areas are only for them to touch/see.

3- Talk about the difference between secrets and the difference between secrets and surprises.

4- Create a safety network and let your child know what to do if they are in an unsafe situation or experience unsafe touch.

5- Use things like safety words and teach them that they can ALWAYS tell you anything and that it doesn't matter when something happened, they can still always tell you!

6- Use communication tools (like CONSENTletters™) to let your child's caretakers know that you are actively teaching your kids about body safety.

Check out below for more info on each of these steps!

Sending you love and strength.
