Lauren feels unsafe at school when Hayden-Reece appears over the wall of the toilet. She goes to tell Miss Martin, who is on her Network. Miss Martin teaches her class the difference between Public and Private and explains that no one should see or touch your private parts, and that Private means 'Just for you'. This book will help both parents and teachers explain this important subject so that children of all ages will understand the difference between public and private, and how that applies to them personally in their daily lives.
This book also contains resource pages for adults, which include going over the main points of protective education (protective behaviours), and giving specific information to effectively and efficiently deal with receiving a disclosure of abuse from a child. This book is the second in a series of books where Miss Martin teaches her students about protective education (Matilda learns a valuable lesson). One of the most challenging aspects of being a parent is preparing your child for the potential challenges that exist in the world. How do you achieve this without scaring them, wrapping them in cotton wool or providing them with too much information? Protective education is a proactive life skills approach. By teaching children the language and principles of protective education, in a holistic and integrated way, they can acquire invaluable skills and strategies to identify unsafe situations and protect themselves from potential harm. With a strong foundation in empowering children and building resilience, the protective education program is not only an abuse prevention program, it can also be extended to embrace anti-bullying, drug awareness, or youth suicide prevention programs.
