Overview

It's MY Body has been written in order to help adults and preschool children talk about sexual abuse together in a way which minimizes embarrassment and fear, but emphasizes self-reliance and open communication. You will not find specific references and stories about sexual abuse in this book. Preschool children are not ready for detailed discussions of this issue. They are ready, however, to learn how their feelings can help them make decisions about sharing their bodies, and how to communicate those decisions to others. This kind of learning serves as a vital first step in the protection of children from sexual abuse. It's MY Body introduces two touching codes which children can use to protect themselves when they're uncomfortable. Popular with preschool teachers and pediatricians, who report children sometimes practice the protective phrases on siblings and dolls.

This book is nothing less than great for teaching kids the difference between good, bad - friends, foes - and love and lust. This book just might save a life!

The book is very helpful for parents and teachers to explain physical boundaries to very young children.When a child is very young,let's say 2 to 5,they need tp learn only a parent can touch their body and only for diapering and washing.All uncomfortable sexual touch is off limits.A child should learn that a doctor or nurse must have permission from the parent to exam a child's body for disease and injury.The child must be secure in telling the parent of anyone who might have gone beyond these boundaries.
