My 6 year old was very proud of Betsy Boodle because she called the police and she was not scared to call the police. My 4 year old really enjoyed the pictures. Likely this topic was a little confusing her, but I would rather bring it up too early than too late.
Sexual abuse is serious and something we need to be very aware of as parents. While we don't want our children to be afraid of their own shadows, we need them to understand that everyone isn't their friend, and that some people really want to hurt them. Again, this book allows us to ease into the conversation.

I have 3 children - 2 girls and 1 boy - ages, 8, 3 and 7.
The book is written in Limerick form, so kids will remember the things that are in it.
One of the most important things that Stacy mentioned in her talk was that so many of the kids she sees had no idea that what was happening to them was wrong, until it had gone too far. The reason was that their parents had never spoken to them about good touch and bad touch.
By giving your kids the tools to understand what "bad touch" means, you are empowering them to understand from the first time they are approached by a predator that something isn't right. Pedophiles usually groom their victims, sometimes for years, with gentle caressing, hugs, innocent touches, then gifts, telling them that it's "love", eventually leading to oral sex and full intercourse.
By educating your children that their "privates are private", hopefully they will be able to come to you, or to another trusted adult immediately when the first step happens. If steps are taken early on, we can prevent it from going any further, saving our own children, and potentially many others.
Apparently there is a second book being released shortly, this time aimed more towards boys, and I look forward to purchasing it to read with my son.
