No, Means NO!
by Y. Taylor
Whatever the example, children live and grow by that example.
No, Means NO! is a story that every child should hear, because child predators do not announce their arrival in a childs life. To the contrary, they strategically maneuver into childrens lives in a very concealing and sly manner. They are camouflaged right before our very eyes. Many times, they remain in childrens lives for a long time. (And even once is a long time.)
It is up to us, as responsible adults, to let children know that if they are sexually abused, or fearful of being abused, they must tell someone. Children need to know that no matter what a predator says to make them not tell anyone, TELL ANYWAY! No, Means NO! was written to support children against sexual abuse and to support bonding between adults and children. Hopefully, this level of healthy bonding will support children enough to encourage them to speak out, if ever needed, against sexual abuse.
