70. Being Sexually Abused Changed the Way I Raise My Child

NO means NO, right? Sometimes it doesn’t, and I know it very well considering my sexual abuse history. But we can change this as parents of both girls and boys by teaching them early on that NO means NO, even when it’s a laughing NO.   

This episode of Self Love Legacy is for you parents, future parents, and all caregivers to know the importance of teaching your children physical boundaries. Listen in to learn how to make sure that your children’s choices are respected by others at home or in public
