It’s... Just Private by Shelby DeBause, MA, LMFT
and Ashley Wroton, Ed.S., LPC, RPT

Jayla and Justin enjoy playing hide-and-seek on the
playground at school.  One day they discover their friends
playing a game that they have never heard of before.  When
the teacher learns of this game, she explains to everyone
about “private parts.” Jayla and Justin both tell their parents,
who talk to them about safe and polite boundaries with
“private” body parts.  How do their parents talk to them about
these body parts? What do Jayla and Justin tell their friends
about that game?
