My Body Belongs to Me

I recently received an email from Jill Starishevsky. Ms. Starishevsky in an Assistant District Attorney in New York. She has recently written a book titled, " My Body Belongs to Me." This book is a very basic book for young children on a subject that many adults or parents have trouble approaching. Her book focuses on child sexual abuse prevention. She gave a wonderful interview on ABC news. I have included the link so that you may watch it:

I thought this may be helpful if there is anyone out there looking for resources on the subject. I personally have not gotten the book yet, but I hope to.

wow! i stumble all over that subject all the time. but i have said what is okay and what is not. however, i think a book or two, explaining it, would reinforce it and drive the point home. very good info. tough subject. thank you for sharing.

That looks like a great resource. I actually had an uncomfortable situation this year with my 8 year old. A little girl confided in her at school. Caught me off guard for sure and discussed with guidance counselor. I'll have to take a look at the link.

This is a great help! I had an odd moment at the pool a couple of weeks ago where a 6 year old girl told my 3 year old son she wanted to watch him go potty. I then realized I need to figure out how to teach my son a little bit about what is/isn't appropriate with his body. Thanks for the resource!
