My Body Belongs to Me: A Parents Guide
Award-winning sexuality educator Elizabeth Schroeder, EdD, MSW, delivers a practical guide for parents and caregivers to initiate critical conversations about responsibility, personal boundaries, and consent—especially when it comes to their bodies—with children as young as 3 years old, using language and examples they can understand.
Schroeder encourages parents and caregivers to have meaningful conversations with children, so they understand:
- They have the right to say who touches their body and how
- They have a responsibility to respect others' boundaries
- They can always talk with you if someone makes them feel uncomfortable
With helpful resources and references, this book clearly presents relatable scenarios and basic guidance on where to start, what to say without scaring or confusing children, and how to answer tough questions and model healthy examples of boundaries.
