November 17, 2006, Newsletter Issue #114: Talking About Abuse

Tip of the Week

Bathtime is the best time to talk about our bodies and how to care for them. Also to point out the fact that there are accpetable and unacceptable ways for people to touch each other. Some families use the terms "yummy touches" and "yucky touches". Examples of a yummy touch may be a hug or a piggy back. A yucky touch could be any physical contact that makes the child uncomfortable or invades their personal space, like a smack or unwanted kiss, for examples. Be sure to use correct terms when referring to parts of the body. This is especially important in conversations about this important topic.
