Book Review and Giveaway: I Said NO!

Being a parent is the most wonderful job in the world, but it can also be the most awkward and uncomfortable at times. There are topics such as puberty and the birds and the bees that need to be addressed as our children get older. I'm glad I still have a few years left on that one. One topic that needs to be addressed NOW is that of stranger danger and "good touch/bad touch". Yeah. Awkward.... I'm uncomfortable right now as I write this.
Thankfully, I was sent a book to review called "I Said NO! A Kid to Kid Guide to Keeping Your Privates Private".



It was written by Zack and Kimberly King-a mother and her child who experienced a bad situation and used their experience to educate others. The book is written from a child's point of view, uses non-icky terms to highlight green flag and red flag situations and tells your child how to deal with hazardous situations. It also gives parents a road map to start a dialogue with their kids.


Samantha read this to her brother and later they explained the book to me and which situations are red flag and green flag. It was nice to see that the message sunk in, and it made having that talk with them much less awkward. I also have some piece of mind knowing that my children are armed with this knowledge.

I would recommend this book to parents with children of any age. I am also giving away a copy to a random Confessions of a Stay at Home Mommy follower. Just make sure you are following this blog on Google Friend Connect and leave a comment below with your email address so I can contact you. If you aren't comfortable leaving your email address in the comments make sure it is on your Google profile. I will choose one winner at random on Monday, March 26th .

If you don't win, this book is available to purchase on Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com

Happy Reading
~Macy

  5. Hum I don't fit the description of a stay at home mom but saw your post and wanted to make a comment. I am a 11 year old scout leader and one of the things that a new scout needs to do when they start is read the guide to being safe with adults its a pull out guide in the scout book that the scouts need to read with their parents. A couple years back one of our new scouts we asked if he had read the book with his parents and he said yes we read the Icky book with his parents. Now every time I see a book like that or the one you have that's the silly thoughts that pop into my head. I am a father of 3 kids and have a wife that's 9 months pregnant (yes about to pop) we should have us a new born here in the next few days.
