Did You Know?

​Helping children understand that they have the right to establish boundaries if anyone tries to hurt them or touch them in a way that makes them feel uncomfortable is an important, but sometimes difficult, task. Establishing boundaries around touch is integral to keeping kids safe. Having regular, open conversations about safety is one of the best ways to help keep kids safe. Remind children that their bodies are their own, encourage them to talk about their concerns and listen respectfully when they do. For more information from visit,​.

​Ayudar a los niños a comprender que tienen derecho a establecer límites si alguien intenta lastimarlos o tocarlos de una manera que los haga sentir incómodos es una tarea importante, pero a veces difícil. Establecer límites alrededor del tacto es esencial para mantener seguros a los niños. Tener conversaciones abiertas y regulares sobre la seguridad es una de las mejores maneras de ayudar a mantener a los niños seguros. Recuérdeles a los niños que sus cuerpos son suyos, anímelos a hablar sobre sus preocupaciones y escuche respetuosamente cuando lo hagan. Para obtener más información, visite,​.
