The Underwear Rule – PANTS
Knowing when and how to talk to your child about staying safe can be difficult. NSPCC has a range of resources to help you do this including leaflets and videos for children and adults with Special Educational Needs or Disability.
They have developed a simple Underwear rule – PANTS:
Privates are private
Always remember your body belongs to you
No means no
Talk about secrets that upset you
Speak up, someone can help
