Let's Talk PANTS


With the help of our friendly dinosaur Pantosaurus, talking PANTS is a simple way to teach your child how to stay safe from abuse.

You’ve probably already talked to your child about things like crossing the road safely. Talking to them about how to keep their own bodies safe is just as easy with the NSPCC PANTS rules.

When's the right time to talk? 

You know your child better than anyone. And you'll know when they're ready and how much detail to go into. Some parents found these moments helped them start the conversation:

      • bathtime, applying cream or when getting your child dressed 
      • car journeys
      • going swimming and saying that what's covered by swimwear is private
      • during a TV show that features a sensitive storyline
      • singing along to our PANTS song with Pantosaurus

Meet Pantosaurus - our pant-wearing Dino! He wants every child to stay safe and strong, just like him, and he's on a mission to share an important message.
