Re: When did you start teaching your kids about touching?

My DD's were pretty young when we started, but they bathe with us. Of course, they got curious, but we let them know that area is private and not to touch. As more questions arose, we have explained more. Sexual abuse was present in both DH's and my home growing up so we have started early introducing proper body names, bodily integrity, and private areas. At about 2.5, DD had to start cleaning her private area as even Mom and Dad shouldn't touch it. Of course, we have a caveat as in if something hurts etc. but the abuse in my house was from my father so sometimes even Mom or Dad isn't safe.
