Synopses & Reviews
The latest installment in The Mother Companys award-winning “MILES” series, Miles Is The Boss Of His Body is a fun, engaging way to explore the potentially difficult topic of kids personal safety. On his 6th birthday, Miles excitement is dimmed when he finds himself being pinched, noogied, hugged too tight, picked up and tickled by his well-intentioned family and decides hes had enough! When Miles decrees that he is the “Boss of his body,” his whole family expresses support and respect for his personal boundaries. In a colorful, comic-book style, young kids will laugh while learning this potentially life-saving concept that can benefit them for years to come.

This book is a gentle and effective tool to share this important lesson in a way children will fully understand." Pattie Fitzgerald, Founder, Safely Ever
"This book gives children the permission they need, along with the tools they need, to speak up for themselves in regards to their body and personal space. An essential lesson for all children!" Dr. Lindsay Heller, Psy.D., Child Psycho
