Ballymena PSNI recently shared this information about Body Safety rules. Here is what they said:
The police Public Protection Unit does really important and difficult work in investigating child sexual exploitation and abuse. Having conversations with children about appropriate contact can help to prevent abuse and grooming in the first place. Here’s a great wee resource from Play Therapy NI. It might help you to have a conversation with your child this half term.
Share the Body Safety Rules with your Child
This is a delicate subject but looking at this resource together with your child could help you to open up a conversation. one of the most useful things here is to talk about your child’s safety network. Deciding together who are the adults that they trust and can talk to will help your child to feel supported. Another very important lesson is about keeping secrets. Hopefully this resource from Play therapy NI will help you to make a difficult topic easier to talk about with your kids. Thanks to Ballymena PSNI for sharing this.
