Sometimes adults might need to touch you if you have had an accident or hurt yourself to help you get better.
They should always explain why and ask if it’s okay first. However, it is very wrong if another child or an adult touches you or tries to touch you in private places that you know shouldn’t be touched. He or she might have done this at a time when you are on your own. This is wrong and it’s not your fault. You should always tell someone about it. Speak to a grown up you trust – like a member of your family, a teacher or a classroom assistant.
The person who is touching you may tell you to keep it a secret or try to say something that might mean you feel scared to tell another person. That’s very wrong too.
Remember you should always tell. Speak to a grown up you trust – like someone in your family, a teacher or a classroom assistant.
