Know The Difference Between A Good Touch And A Bad Touch
Bad Touch: it is the kind of touch that makes you feel uncomfortable. Tell someone. If an older person is tickling you and you ask them to stop and they don't, that is a bad touch. It is important to tell an adult that you trust.
Good Touch: it makes you and the other person feel good. Hugs or pats on the back.
