Eight year old Julie and her mother talk about about privacy and saying "no" to touching that makes her uncomfortable in a serious but non-frightening manner. They discuss several real-life scenarios including being tickled excessively by a sibling to not wanting to sit in her older relative's lap. The mother emphasizes Julie's power to say "No" to touch that makes her uncomfortable and having control over her own body. The concept of "privacy" is also defined in the story -- that is, "private parts" are the parts of one's body that is generally covered by their underwear or a bathing suit. Correct terminology for both male and female private parts is used.
