"Body Safety Education is an excellent book for parents, carers and educators. It provides all you need to know to help protect children from sexual abuse - presented in an easy to read and friendly, non threatening format. I will definitely be including this book in my resources for teaching protective behaviours and body safety to children aged 3-12 and also recommending it to parents everywhere."

"Thank you Jayneen for yet, another, wonderful book for parents, carers and professionals alike. This is a great, easy to read, follow and understand resource to teach and educate children about protective behaviour and body safety. As a psychologist working with children and adolescent victim/survivors of sexual abuse, I could not recommend this highly enough or the importance of empowering children to be educated on body safety. This is one book that every parent should read and use with their children from as young as possible. It’s never too early or too late to start teaching your child/ren protective behaviour or educating yourself about childhood sexual abuse. Well done Jayneen."
