NSPCC Talk PANTS Campaign
We are promoting the NSPCC’s Talk PANTS campaign.
The guide helps parents have simple conversations with their children that can help keep them safe from abuse. It’s specially created for parents of early years and primary school children, with engaging and age-appropriate messages.
Talk PANTS centres on five key rules:
• Privates are private.
• Always remember your body belongs to you.
• No means no.
• Talk about secrets that upset you.
• Speak up, someone can help.
Although some parents may feel this is a sensitive area to discuss with their child, we feel that sharing messages such as these with children at an early age can be very beneficial in helping to protect your child. Research from the NSPCC also suggests that the messages are most valuable when taught at a young age. We hope you find this booklet useful – for more information about the campaign go to nspcc.org.uk/pants
