Uncle Willy's Tickles: A Child's Right to Say No, Second Edition
For individuals in the U.S. & U.S. territories
Uncle Willy tickles Kyle until his insides feel like they're splitting apart. Kyle loves Uncle Willy, but not those tickles. He wants to hide when Uncle Willy visits. He'll put spots all over his face so Uncle Willy will think he has chicken pox and leave him alone. He'll tell his mom he's sick so he can stay in his room. But instead he tells her about Uncle Willy's tickles…and then he tells Uncle Willy, too.
In a new Note to Parents, Jane Annunziata, PsyD, discusses touches and the idea that your body belongs to you.
