Helping kids set healthy boundaries for their private parts can be a daunting and awkward task for parents, counsellors and educators.
Written from a kid’s point of view, I Said No! makes this task a lot easier.
To help Zack cope with a real-life experience he had with a friend, he and his mom wrote a book to help prepare other kids to deal with a range of problematic situations.
I Said No! uses kid-friendly language and illustrations to help parents and concerned adults give kids guidance they can understand, practice and use.
Using a simple, direct, decidedly non-icky approach that doesn’t dumb down the issues involved, as well as an easy-to-use system to help kids rehearse and remember appropriate responses to help keep them safe.
I Said No! covers a variety of topics, including:
- What’s appropriate and with whom.
- How to deal with inappropriate behavior, bribes and threats.
- When and where to go for help, and what to do if the people you are turning to for help don’t listen.
- Dealing with feelings of guilt and shame
