Know The Difference Between A Good Touch And A Bad Touch


Bad Touch: A bad touch is the kind of touch that makes you feel uncomfortable. Tell someone. It is important to tell an adult that you trust.  If an older person is tickling you and you ask them to stop and they don't, that is a bad touch. 


Good Touch: A good touch is the kind of touch that makes you and the other person feel good.  Hugs or pats on the back are good examples.
