There are a growing number of books and videos—some for purchase, some free—to help parents prepare their children to respond to those who would hurt them. Here are just two of the many resources now available.

I Said No! A Kid-to-kid Guide to Keeping Private Parts Private (Boulden Publishing, 2016) by Kimberly King and Zack King. The publisher writes:

Using a simple, direct, decidedly non-icky approach that doesn't dumb down the issues involved, as well as an easy-to-use system to help kids rehearse and remember appropriate responses to help keep them safe, “I Said No!” covers a variety of topics, including: what’s appropriate and with whom; how to deal with inappropriate behavior, bribes and threats; when and where to go for help, and what to do if the people you are turning to for help don't listen; and dealing with feelings of guilt and shame.

God Made All of Me: A Book to Help Children Protect Their Bodies (New Growth Press, 2015) by Justin Holcomb and Lindsey Holcomb.

The publisher writes:

“God Made All of Me” starts from the fundamental truth that God created everything and applies that truth to kids and their bodies. It equips parents to talk with both boys and girls about their bodies and to help them understand the difference between the appropriate and inappropriate touch of others. “God Made All of Me” allows families to build a first line of defense against sexual abuse in the safety of their own homes.

The authors write:

Parents need tools to help talk with their kids about their bodies and to help them understand the difference between appropriate and inappropriate touch. The book allows families to build a first line of defense against sexual abuse in the safety of their own homes. We wrote it as a tool so they can explain to their children that God made their bodies. Because private parts are private, there can be lots of questions, curiosity, or shame regarding them. For their protection, children need to know about private parts and understand that God made their body and made it special.
