Lady B's Safety School
by Ralph F. Frank

Safety is a tricky business.

In his trusty cardboard plane, Jesse pretends to fly to far-off places just like his neighbour, an airline pilot, who offers compliments, gifts, and a secret outing to a real cockpit, but Jesse grows increasingly uncomfortable with uninvited touch. At Lady B’s Safety School on the first branch of his backyard oak tree, our wise, feisty ladybug reminds Jesse that he is allowed to say ‘NO!’ to a No Feeling, and teaches him how to respond to sneaky gifts, secrets and tricks. To steer a safe path, Jesse must decide how to navigate this journey: will he keep an uncomfortable secret or talk to his parents who always know what to do?

In this sequel to Lady B Spots Trouble, we continue the conversation about a child’s right to withhold consent to unwanted touch. As Lady B says: “He has to ask permission to touch you anywhere. It’s your body. You get to decide. It’s called consent. If you don’t say ‘YES’, there is NO consent!”

Take off on another adventure with our intrepid duo and learn more about talking to children about unsafe touch.

Ralph F. Frank has worked as a social worker, counsellor, and educator for over 40 years, specializing in sexual abuse.
