Tell to say ‘no!’
They should know that it is okay to say no to anyone who wants to make them feel uncomfortable or tries to touch them inappropriately.
Use relevant examples
Children should also know that even teachers or police officers don’t have the right to touch them inappropriately or make them feel uncomfortable.
Continue giving sex education to your child. Emphasize on the importance of keeping boundaries. In addition, make them feel free to talk to you about anything.
How do you know your child has been abused?
