One of the important ways for prevention is to teach children about touches, just like we teach our children safety rules about crossing the road, we should also teach them about safe and unsafe touch.

Safe touch:

  • Anything that makes us feels good and leaves us happy and comfortable.
  • Holding hands with friends, sharing meals, warm hug from loving parents.

Unsafe touch:

  • Anything that makes us feels confused and leaves us uneasy or uncomfortable.
  • Touches involving our special parts that are private to us, touches that are told to be kept secret.
