Your child is still understanding society and social behavior. He or she may not be very well versed with socially acceptable and socially unacceptable behavior. A child will not know what is good and what is bad and as a parent, it is your job to teach them. You are the person responsible for your child and the kind of person your child will turn out to be after he or she grows up. You teach your child that charity is good and stealing is bad. You teach your child all about good and bad and teach them the difference between the two but when it comes to their own bodies, parents sometimes forget the importance of teaching kid’s all about it.

As a parent, you have bigger responsibilities and you need to stop hesitating and start doing the right thing to protect your child from harm. Get comfortable with your child and open a line of communication. Teach them about their bodies and genitals. Let them be comfortable talking about their genitals with you. The conversation about good touch and bad touch helps them understand the importance and meaning of safe and acceptable touch. It helps them understand that they can say “no” and they learn how to say “no”. It makes them aware and sensitizes them towards things like child sex abuse.

The knowledge about good touch and bad touch can help your child tell the difference between wrong and right and it can save them from being exploited. It helps them stay safe and self-aware. This can help them understand that their parents have their back and they are dependable. It allows them to get comfortable with you and share things with you. They will know that they can turn to their parents if anything happens. This allows them to understand healthy boundaries and consent. Every child needs to understand consent and exploitation in order to stay safe
