Peggy the Porcupine:  Let’s Talk About Touching

Intended Audience: Children Preschool through 2nd Grade

Peggy the Porcupine is a character that we use in some of our children’s programs to help us break through barriers when speaking with children about sensitive topics.  We have found that by introducing a third party–in this case a porcupine puppet–the children with whom we speak are much more open and communicative.  It helps us to have a more open dialog and learn what the children are really feeling.  In this video, Mrs. Kay and Peggy talk about types of touches and what is acceptable versus what is not.

Intended Audience: Children 3rd Grade through 6th Grade
