The TALKING ABOUT TOUCHING program gives children a foundation of fundamental skills for dealing with dangerous situations and supports families and teachers in discussing sensitive but critical issues with children. This research-based program begins with common safety rules for cars, traffic, fire, and guns, then moves on to the "always ask first rule" and lessons about abusive situations and touching safety.
