The Five Bs “Bundle Package”
Hats off to the producers of this educational program that tackles the very tough subject of sexual abuse. The core of this system is two DVD’s that expertly address how to talk about the subject, something the producers stress is every parent’s responsibility. The program gives parents the tools they need to break the ice, explain it in terms that can be understood using brilliant metaphors that children can understand and relate to. The Five B’s refer to 1) Body Parts, and there is no beating around the bush about what body parts are being discussed, this direct approach eliminates awkwardness, 2) Boundaries, they use soccer imagery to explain what is in and out of bounds when it comes to certain behaviors. A hula hoop is also employed to clarify the your/my space concept. The other B’s are Be Brave, Bust Secrets, Be Bold and Brave. Parents were impressed not only at the professional manner in which this was produced and presented but also in how they got over their own fears and felt much better for having done so.
