Empowering Young Minds: How Might I Teach Children About Body Safety Through a Book?
Type of Culminating Activity
Student research paper
As a mother of two girls, I have thought about how to teach my two daughters about body safety without feeling uncomfortable myself; hence making them feel uncomfortable. Especially today with the easy access to social media and the internet, I believe it is more important to teach them about body safety. So, how might I teach children about body safety (sexual abuse awareness) through a book? As I researched this topic, I discovered that we are not taught about addressing our private parts with the correct terminology and there are not very many books out there on body safety. So my solution would be to create a children’s book that teaches children about body safety and empowers them to speak up.
