Fetuses already detect in the uterus the special sensations in the vagina and penis. Fortunately, we do not interfere for better or worse in this sensory experience. The problem starts when they emerge from the protected uterus. When we diaper our baby we find that our daughter or son shows a special interest in touching the genitals: erection, desire to explore and touch, pleasure and masturbation at a later age (three to six). Our reactions to toddler sexuality will greatly affect their lives. If we break free from the "moral" inhibitions on which we grew up and respond and talk about sexuality as we talk about many other issues, we will develop in childhood and boys a healthy and sexually protected sexuality that will stand to their right in a time of need.

The statistics are shocking and outrageous: 1 in 5 girls and boys are sexually abused as children, but we can change it and protect them. Therefore, we have formulated ten rules that can help us in this:

1. Although most of us have experienced a discourse on sexuality that involves embarrassment, try to shake it off. For a start, the genitals were named after them: vagina and penis (as we call the foot, "foot", and nose "nose"). The precise naming of organs will allow us and our children to talk openly about anything related to sexuality without guilt and shame.

Encourage your children to ask questions about sexuality, and answer them with credibility and according to their age.

3. Since we are aware and aware that boys and girls are sexually abused, we will let our children know that most adults want their best and should not be afraid of them, but there are those who are able to harm them. They can be strangers but they can be familiar and even family members (80 percent of the sexually abusive are family members or people familiar to the boy and girl). We will explain that the offenders look like completely ordinary people, and the way to know if they are good or not, is to see what they are doing and hear what they are saying, and how it makes us feel.

Encourage children to tell him about any harm (sexual and non-sexual) or attempted harm. We will not doubt their words, we will not blame them and we will not underestimate the intensity of the injury. There are three important sentences to say to the child, who shared with you the case in which he / she was harmed:

- "Good that you told me" - to give the child reinforcement about the very reference and story to the parent.

- "It's not your fault" - remove guilt from the child.

- "I will take care of it" - remove responsibility from the child.

5. We will teach our children to use strong words like "No!" Or "D!" And strengthen their right to refuse any person who offers something that does not seem to them or does not suit them. You can practice with the children on strong sentences, such as:

- Get out of here

- Leave me

- I do not know you

- You are not my father / mother / friend

- I want help

- Stop

- I do not want

- I will tell father / mother / teacher / Teacher

6. Encourage children to refuse contact they do not want (even from a familiar person) and protect them by clearly explaining in the presence of the girl or boy that they do not like kisses, affectionate pinches in the cheek, strong hugs, tickling, etc.

7. Teach children to develop skills that will help them defend themselves. For example: if a child from kindergarten invites you to his home, do not go without permission from the parents. If someone tries to do something to you against your will, tell a parent or other adult you trust immediately.

8. Talk to your children about legitimate secrets, such as a birthday surprise, and secrets that must be revealed to parents even if you promised not to reveal them. Young children (under the age of 8) should not be expected to keep a secret, and they should emphasize: do not keep secrets, always tell parents!

9. Encourage your children to listen to their gut feelings. Children's intuition is strong and can warn of a poor situation - if it does not feel good to you, or it makes you confused, listen to your feelings. Only you know what's good for you.

10. We will remind our children not to give private information (residential address, parents' names, their age ...) to a stranger, unless they are lost and need help, then it is advisable to contact a woman with children, a guard or a saleswoman.

We must remember that we have the power to make the world a safe place for our children, and only through education for sexual protection and healthy sexuality will we succeed in bringing about change.
