Body Boundaries program held at Primary

(Continued)

MT. VERNON — —

Primary Center Principal Shannon Marler said the Body Boundaries program is an important education and awareness tool to help prevent child abuse.

I think it's probably good that they are aware of their bodies and what the boundaries are for them,” Marler said.

Marler also said the “light-hearted” nature of the presentation makes it easier for children to understand the issues and less scary for them.

At the end of her speech Wednesday, McKay explained to the students that child sexual abuse is rare, but they should learn about it so they can “keep safe.”

She used the example of fire and tornado drills being held at the school even though it's unlikely such disasters would occur.

The reason we talk about it is so you know what it is and what to do,” McKay said.
