Body Boundaries: OK or NO WAY?

It is important to teach children about body boundaries at an early age. We want them to realise that they control their own body and that everyone has a right to their own personal space. It’s sensible to talk about contexts where it might be appropriate for someone else to touch them, such as at appointments with the dentist, doctor or hairdressers, as well as situations where being touched is not appropriate. They should know that it is ok to say no, even to people who they love and care about. Our OK or NO WAY quiz will open up family discussion about speaking up if they are touched in a way that makes them feel uncomfortable and also help to cultivate a sense of respect for others’ boundaries.
