Our goal is to encourage families to teach their children to overcome fear and to be able to scream the words, “STOP! DON’T TOUCH ME THERE!
If the children are ever in a situation where they are being touched inappropriately, they will be confident about what to say and do.
One in ten children will be sexually assaulted before their 18th birthday.1 Why don’t children tell? They are afraid, threatened and their fear turns into denial, then disassociation, where they imagine that they are somewhere else.
Having children memorize the short simple phrase, “Stop! Don’t touch me!” before the situation takes place will empower them to stop their abusers.
