Be Safe: Understanding Private Parts Social Story
This resource, part of the Be Safe resource collection, is a social story explaining private parts and when it's okay for other people to see or touch private parts.
Private parts are areas of the body no one should touch or see unless you say it's okay.
Private body parts are areas covered by a bathing suit or underwear.
Private parts should not be shown to anyone who does not want to see them.
Some people, like parents, may touch your private parts but only if you say it's okay.
Parents, family members or staff may ask to touch your private parts to help you stay clean or healthy.
Sometimes doctors or nurses will ask to touch your private parts when they are giving a check up.
