It says in God's Word that we are fearfully and wonderfully made. God made us in His image and we are precious. Our bodies are our own and we need to take care of them. Today we looked at the correct words to use when talking about our bodies. This included the correct words for our private parts. We talk to people we trust if we need to talk about our bodies.
We also talked about different types of touch - touch we like, touch that hurts and we want to stop, and confusing touch that we want to stop.
We used the following situations and asked the children how these situations would make them feel and what they should do about it:
1. An adult that you don't know comes up and takes your hand.
2. Someone at school pulls your hair.
3. The babysitter sits very close to you and puts their arm around you.
4. Someone hugs you too tight and gives you a sloppy kiss.
Talk with your child about what they learnt in todays session.
