When did you have that talk with your kids? How did you go about talking to them about it? Did it lead in to the "no one touches you down there" talk?..and how did you talk about that one?
Just curious, I keep seeing a lot of posts about kids being sexually abused, or thought to be, and articles about strangers and so on,..so I was just wondering. My dd is 3 and is terrified of anyone she doesn't know (sahm), and since she's been potty trained for almost a year, she has become a lot more modest, and we always try to explain that big girls keep their clothes/jammies on all the time, and that only she can touch herself on her "lala" (what she calls her vagina) like when she wipes after going potty.

I really like this children's book "Getting Smart About Your Private Parts by Gail Saltz and Lynne Avril Cravath". It tells tips w/out scaring your child. Another great DVD is called Stranger Danger. You can get both at libraries. And you can check a good book store too. Read through the bk and see if you are comfortable with it and preview the video too before sharing to make sure you agree w/ what is being said.
