My Underpants Rule - Book Review

by Jacq_ (follow)
Writer, mum. Coffee lover @familydaytrippers
If you are unsure about how to start teaching your children that their 'private parts belong only to them', this book is the perfect way to introduce the topic.

My Underpants Rule is based on a serious subject told in a lighthearted manner, empowering children to deal with difficult situations and to learn 'their underpants rule'.

This rule being; what's under my pants belongs only to me! And others can't touch there or ask me to see. But safe grown-up or doctor when I'm not healthy. What's under my pants belongs only to me.

Told in whimsical rhyming verse, loaded with colourful, super-hero-caped children and smiley-faced underwear characters; Kate and Rod Power, have managed to incorporate a serious subject and learning material, with a fun, repetitive and easy-to-remember rule/guide.

It also includes scenarios where you can ask your children how they would respond to such a situation; providing a great starting point for important conversations about safety and personal boundaries.

Author, Kate Power, is a former Police Officer who has seen first-hand the dangers children are exposed to. Combined with her husband Rod, they share a dream of a world where all children are empowered to know how to handle difficult situations and have learnt their Underpants Rule.

Hopefully, their dream will soon be recognised and My Underpants Rule will be a book every child will be fortunate enough to read.
