Some Secrets Should Never Be Kept.
Posted by: Sue Atkins
Some Secrets Should Never Be Kept is a beautifully illustrated picture book that sensitively broaches the subject of keeping our children safe from sexual interference written by Jayneen Sanders.
This book was written as a tool to help parents, caregivers and teachers broach the subject with children in a non-threatening way.
1 in 3 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused before they turn 18.
We as parents teach road safety, we teach water safety so perhaps it’s time we taught Body Safety
Here’s a lovely testimonial about the book:
“Congratulations on writing an engaging story with perhaps the most vital of all children’s safety messages conveyed in such a warm and delicate way. You have managed to achieve the challenge of ‘preparing without scaring’ when tackling these important issues – I’m very impressed!”
Jayneen is a mother of three teenage girls and has been a school councillor at her local primary school for over seven years. This time spent in primary schools both as a teacher and a parent inspired her to ask the question of her community: ‘What are we doing in schools to protect our children from sexual interference?’ When she realised very little was actually being done, she decided to use her authoring and publishing skills to write a book to help parents, carers and teachers to broach the subject of self-protection and to encourage children to speak up.
