A Kids’ Book That Should Make Parents Freak Out
This is a kids’ book.
I don’t even know what to say.
Is this a thing?
What’s going on in our kindergartens? Do we have some kind of freaky, sexual Lord of the Flies situation in our preschools?
Lord help us parents.
Forget the red flag. A baseball bat would be more effective.
The book has great reviews on Good Reads.
Still, I don’t even know what to say.
UPDATE: I misinterpreted the book by just looking at the cover. Bad me. I thought the book was about “kid on kid” sexual abuse, but it’s about watching out for pedophiles basically. This is a description of the book from a commenter, Randie, on Good Reads:
“I Said, No!” is a book written by a boy and his mom to teach children how to keep themselves safe from sexual abuse. The book identifies trusted adults as “green flag people” and strangers, friends, etc as “red flag people”. Children are taught that red flag people should not touch their privates and vice versa. The book addresses how red flag people might use bribes, threats, and lies to hurt them and provides examples of how children can themselves safe from red flag people. The book also emphasizes that if a red flag person does hurt a child, it is never their fault and that it is never too late to tell a trusted adult. I appreciated the fact that the book mentions that sometimes a trusted adult may be a red flag person.
