Sensitizing children about various issues and about good
touch bad touch, makes them emotionally strong and helps them to grow normally.
It helps them handle “not so positive events” in life in a better way so that
they do not impact their growth and personality.
Keeping same in mind a session on Good Touch and Bad touch
was conducted for classes Nur-II on 13th April 2018 at DPS,
Vidyadhar Nagar Branch.
School Counselor Ms Shaheen Dingankar explained that a good touch feels,
pleasant and good, it is a way to show care, love and help. She gave examples
like when mommy hugs or papa gives a goodnight kiss or grandparents hold
children in their arms and holding of friend’s hands while playing are good
touches. And touches that make uncomfortable and feel unpleasant are the bad
She told children that if someone touches them in a way that they do not
like, they should say NO.
It is difficult for young children to understand the difference between
right and wrong and this session was a good learning for them.
