ABOUT THE BOOKWe want our children to be safe and happy, but sometimes that means having to talk to them about uncomfortable things. The Watch Out! series was born out of an effort to help parents and other adults start conversations with their kids about tricky topics. This book is the first in the series.
- Child sexual abuse is a difficult yet necessary topic of conversation with kids. This book, which is part of The Watch Out! Series, broaches the subject through a simple story, meant to be read out to or read with children.
- It’s important to note that this isn’t a comprehensive manual on CSA, and how to prevent or deal with it – it’s a conversation starter. It deals with a very important first step, one that is often omitted while educating children about consent and their bodies, that is, to protest and protest LOUDLY whenever they feel uncomfortable.
- Large, colourful illustrations and minimal text make it an attractive package for young children to pick up and rifle through.
- There are some discussion and activity suggestions for adults to continue from where the book leaves off. This will be helpful to those who need extra guidance on talking about CSA with children.
