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.
The NSPCC is inspired by a belief that we can make a difference for all children. That’s why we aim to end cruelty to children in the UK. The NSPCC’s work is focused on helping those children who are in greatest danger and distress. Our services are all designed to make the biggest difference to children possible.
