What are you to do when someone hugs you against your will? How should you behave when a stranger on the street invites you to come check out some puppies? What should you do when someone touches you and asks you to keep it a secret? Püttsepp tells these true stories and broaches other difficult subjects heard from psychiatrists. With them, he cultivates fertile ground for children to analyze relationships and their own lives.

Included with the book is a guide for parents and teachers, complete with exercises and games.
