Knit-for-Nowt needs a steady supply of these little pants for the worry eaters to wear. The largest pattern size from the website is most suitable for the larger worry eaters we’re making now. Tying into the NSPCC Underwear Rule, these simple props help child welfare professionals discuss a range of body and privacy issues with children. Importantly, they’re used to empower children in the prevention of sexual abuse by teaching the difference between appropriate and inappropriate touching of the body parts covered by our pants. The biggest rule: appropriate touching – a doctor’s examination in the presence of a parent or guardian, for example – is NEVER a secret. If something makes us feel uncomfortable, we should tell someone we trust. Such a powerful message, and so important.
