Inappropriate Touch Discussion Cards

Inappropriate Touch Discussion Cards


Picture cards to encourage a discussion about who should or should not be touching children and how.


Why do you need this?

Discussing inappropriate touch can help empower children to recognise and report instances of abuse. By raising awareness and providing guidance on boundaries, teachers can help protect children from potential harm.


The picture cards provide a visual prompt for teachers to facilitate discussions about personal boundaries and consent. Teachers can engage students in conversations about who should or should not be touching them and under what circumstances.


How and when might you use this?

This activity can be used in a variety of ways:

· Lessons about personal safety focussing on boundaries and body safety.

· Health and well-being lessons about personal space, consent and respect.
