The Underwear Rule is a simple guide to help parents explain to children where others should not try to touch them, how to react and where to seek help.

What is The Underwear Rule? It’s simple: a child should not be touched by others on parts of the body usually covered by their underwear. And they should not touch others in those areas.

It also helps explain to children that their body belongs to them, that there are good and bad secrets and good and bad touches.
