With the help of two puppet frogs, What and Tadoo, Thaddeus learns how to protect himself from strangers with four basic rules: Say No, Get Away, Tell Someone, and if needed, Yell. Highly recommended by prevention professionals, this program looks at the lures strangers use to entice children, and the “uh-oh feeling” they experience with certain touches. Straightforward yet entertaining with a catchy song and charismatic puppets.
“…a superb film for young children about sexual abuse that presents this potentially frightening subject in a sensitive and enlightening manner.”
