As a parent the moments we are out of control can be the scariest. This is why conversations about our bodies are important ones to have with our kids so that in those moments they make their choices out of healthy reasons, not out of pressure or feelings of inadequacy.
This is a comment by Andrew Pollon on the post “I Won’t Teach My Daughter It’s Wrong to Flash Her Boobs“.

This is not the article I expected from the title. This is a really brave and powerfully piece and I applaud you , Shannon, for this. In fact, I’m stealing it for my five year old daughter. I think universally as a parent, the though of our little girl flashing, or little boy pulling out his penis stops the heart in fear. Yet, the way you are having this conversation and wrote this piece, in my opinion, is spot on. Thank you.
