My Body Is Special and Belongs to Me! is a fun, safe, developmentally appropriate, and most of all comfortable way for parents to educate their children about the topic of personal safety. This book is the conversation you want to have with your child, but may not be sure how to approach. This book will empower your children with the understanding that their bodies belong to them and that they are in charge of their own bodies. As Personal Safety Educators, we are often asked by parents how they can talk to their children about this important subject without scaring them or sending the wrong message. My Body Is Special and Belongs to Me! was created to open the lines of communication between parents and children. Talking about touch with your children can and should be a part of everyday parenting. The Parents Place section contains a plethora of information all parents, caregivers, and teachers need to know about teaching personal safety. As you read through the children’s section, its age-appropriate, kid-friendly format will guide you in educating your child about safe and unsafe touch. My Body Is Special and Belongs to Me! provides a framework for many ongoing conversations with your children about personal safety, secrets, trusted adults, and much more. This book will help you give your kids the tools they need to be KidSafe Smart! “My Body Is Special teaches children that they have a right to feel safe and comfortable, and that others will listen when they speak up using their “Safety Voice.” The way the authors approach the topic takes the scariness out of talking about it—with even young children. No mysterious-sounding “Stranger Danger” here. This book presents solid and simple concepts; bright and accessible ­artwork; helpful conversation tips for parents; activities to reinforce the lessons for kids; and useful, factual information. It’s a tool that informs parents about the risks of abuse so they will feel empowered to help keep their children safe.” —Lisa Blum, Psy.D., Clinical Psychologist, family and couples therapist, and mother of a 5-year-old daughter
