Ø LESSON 10: UNDERSTANDING THE CONCEPT OF PRIVACY
Teach the kids that some parts of their body are very private and so, should be well covered, well protected and kept very clean.
These parts are the innermost circles in their world. And, nobody has a right to get into that circle without their permission. This helps the child to know that he/ she is the most important person in his/her world. It conveys a feeling of uniqueness.
The private parts are covered with pants and underwear. If you want to scratch your private part, go to where no one will see you. No one should touch your private parts without your permission. Don’t allow anyone to see your private parts.
