I love the section on trusting children and teens to make their own choices about who they touch and what kind of touch is okay for them. Enough forcing them to kiss grandma or hug the aunt they haven't seen in months!! Polite children are easy targets. Support their choices!!!
So much great info in this book for parents...info on how to present safety topics to kids (in a manner that is empowering to them, and not scary)...and info that gives parents confidence in setting appropriate limits in a positive way. I would count this as a "must have" resource for all parents!
I have been working with kids for over 10 years and this book is such an amazing resource! As an adult it helps me understand how I can talk to - and above all teach - kids about safety. What I like about the book is it covers so many areas of the aspect of safety for kids...not only abuse but also bullying, strangers and emergencies. It is all done in such a positive way, looking at how to prevent a lot of problems and also how to have better relationships with other people. It is a very comprehensive guide that is easy to read and simple to implement. I hope every adult who has a child in their life or who works with kids gets this book, reads it and helps kids everywhere be safer and happier!
