In this episode of the Thriving Children Podcast, Clare speaks to Michelle Derrig about child protection. They discuss the prevalence of child sexual abuse, as well as the importance of informing and empowering our children with protective behaviour conversations.
Michelle is author of the picture book 'Only for Me'.
"Only For Me was written in consultation with child protection experts, adult survivors of child abuse and countless parents. It is designed to enable parents and educators to empower young children with the critical information that they need to know, whilst still protecting their innocence".
