'Talk PANTS' helps children understand that their body belongs to them, and they should tell someone they trust if anything makes them feel upset or worried.
You know your child better than anyone. And you'll know when they're ready and how much detail to go into. Some parents found these moments helped them start the conversation:
- bathtime, applying cream or when getting your child dressed
- car journeys
- going swimming and saying that what's covered by swimwear is private
- during a TV show that features a sensitive storyline
- singing along to our PANTS song with Pantosaurus.
When your child is ready, the following guides can be used to introduce PANTS and help keep your child safe.
