Good and Bad Touches
By: Dr. Valencia Weaver
About the Book
Good and Bad Touches teach children the difference between good and bad touches or unwanted touches that a child may experience at an early age. The book helps parents to be comfortable in describing bad touches. The goal is for the child to tell parents if they are experiencing physical or sexual abuse or to prevent bad touches from progressing to sexual abuse. It is critical for children to know the differences between good and bad touches and to tell family members or others if they experience bad touches. Also, Good and Bad Touches educates children on who else is available to talk to if the family is unavailable and stresses the importance of knowing they can always seek help. The Wynter Skye series is a collection of fun, imaginative, relatable, and fascinating short stories. The series covers Wynter Skye’s birth, family time, baby doll bond, first day at daycare, first Christmas, and so much more.
