Gender is the word that is used to say if we are boys or girls .

Boys are different from girls  and girls are different from boys .

The body parts of boys are different from that of girls .

The parts of our bodies that our clothes can cover are called PRIVATE PARTS .

No one is allowed to fiddle or play with our private parts .

If anybody touches our private parts , we should shout and report to adults like our parents or our teacher
