As a parents you have to always encourage your kids to say ‘NO’. You have to tell them if people trying to touch their private parts they have to say no to it. On the other hand if they are not comfortable with certain touch they have right to deny and stay out of it.
- Make Them Read About The Good & Bad Touch:
You have to make your kids learn about the human body, skeleton and different body parts. It is always great to impart the factual information to your kids. Always teach them to stay alert.
- You Must Not Force Affection To Your Kids:
There might possibility that your kids take time to cope up with new people. On the other hand do not make it compulsion for your kids to hug and greet the people coming at your place. On the other hand let them take their decision. Do not force affection on your kids.
- Make Kids Intuitive:
Ask them to believe to their intuitions. The moment they feel that they are uncomfortable ask them to believe themselves and trust their inner self. This would help in developing a strong intuition as they grow. As an trusted adult you have to teach your child to trust their feelings.
