Lesson: Helping Your Child Become the Master of Their Body Moving Beyond Good Touch/Bad Touch
Before the digital age and body positive movements, teaching our children
the difference between “good touch” and “bad touch” seemed like it was all we needed to do to keep our children safe. Using the terms “good touch” and “bad touch” allowed parents to explain in a simple way the difference between wanted, unwanted, or inappropriate touch.
However, as we move further into body positivity movements and the digital age, teaching the difference between “good touch” and “bad touch” is no longer enough.
- Help you as a parent understand the importance of your child feeling in control of their own body
- Help your child start feeling like they are the masters of their body and what that means
