NSPCC Talk PANTS Campaign
The NSPCC Talk PANTS campaign and materials encourage parents and carers to have simple conversations with their children which can help keep them safe from sexual abuse. All of their materials build on the Underwear Rule, which was first developed by the Council of Europe. Initially aimed at parents and carers of five to eleven year olds, the Underwear Rule teaches children that their private parts are private, their body belongs to them, and that they should always tell an adult if they’re upset or worried. They developed this into five easy-to-remember rules – each starting with a letter of PANTS. They’ve also created a friendly dinosaur called Pantosaurus who can help engage children with the rules and make it easier to start the conversation. Their kids’ activity pack, sing-along with Pantosaurus,and Playtime with Pantosaurus game all help to break the ice too. All these materials have been so warmly received that they decided that we should also be speaking to three to five year olds too.
