Joseph and Potiphar's wife

Last night for Family Home Evening we had a talk about "stranger danger," though we made sure that our kids were wary of people they knew, too. We talked about yelling "NNNOOOOO!!!!!" as loudly as possible and running away. Telling mom or dad. All that stuff.

Each day for my kids to earn Otter Pops, they have to get dressed, make beds/clean their room, and read scriptures. (I got the idea from her.) It's really more of an incentive for me, but it works. So we pulled out eh Gospel Art Kit for me to tell them a scripture story. And what's one of the first pictures I see? Joseph running from Potiphar's wife. And I realized it was EXACTLY like what we had discussed for family home evening.



I told them about the good guy, Joseph, and how there was someone who wanted him to take off his clothes and touch him in a bad way. I told them that Joseph said, "NNNOOOOO!!!!!" and ran away. Again, we practiced yelling "NNNOOOOO!!!!" at the top of our lungs. The kids laughed, but I think they got the point, too.

And that, my friends, is how the scriptures help you teach your kids about innappropriate touching.

Great lesson. I never thought the story of Joseph could be used to teach kids about inappropriate touching.
