We want parents and carers across the UK to pledge to teach their child the Underwear Rule to help keep them safe from abuse.

We believe that everyone has a role to play to help prevent the sexual abuse of children and are encouraging parents and carers to teach their children the Underwear Rule to help them stay safe.

Talking to your child about their private parts and staying safe can seem difficult, but doesn’t have to be scary or mention sex.

Simple conversations can help children understand that their body is their own and help protect them from abuse.

Using PANTS, we’ve developed a simple way for parents to explain the key elements of the Underwear Rule to their children.

Privates are private

Always remember your body belongs to you

No means no

Talk about secrets that upset you

Speak up, someone can help

We've also developed a child-friendly guide that you can use when explaining it.

Find out more about the Underwear Rule and our campaign to help parents keep children safe from abuse.
