Teaching Toddlers to be Safe

Teaching our kids to be safe should start early. Here are some age appropriate ways to begin protecting them against abusers. 

+  Teach your children the proper anatomical terms for their private parts.

+  Teach your children about body autonomy. If they don't want to hug or kiss a family member or friend, do not force or guilt them; affirm their decision.

+  Always recap with you little ones. Ask them specific questions about their day, their interactions with adults and friends, and their bathroom breaks.
