THE NSPCC’S PANTS RULE
P is for… Privates are private
Explain to your child that no one should ask to see or touch their private parts. Sometimes doctors, nurses or family members might have to. Explain that this is OK, but that those people should always explain why, and ask your child if it’s OK first.
A is for… Always remember your body belongs to you
Let your child know their body belongs to them, and no one else. No one has the right to make them do anything that makes them feel uncomfortable. And if anyone tries, tell your child they have the right to say no.
N is for… No means no
Make sure your child understands that they have the right to say “no” to unwanted touch – even to a family member or someone they know or love.
T is for… Talk about secrets that upset you
Explain the differences between “good” and “bad” secrets. Phrases like “it’s our little secret” are an abuser’s way of making a child feel worried, or scared to tell someone what is happening to them. Good secrets can be things like surprise parties or presents for other people. Bad secrets make you feel sad, worried or frightened.
S is for… Speak up, someone can help
Tell your child that if they ever feel sad, anxious or frightened they should talk to an adult they trust. This doesn’t have to be a family member. It can also be a teacher or a friend’s parent – ChildLine.
