In this study, we set puppet as the media to prevent sexual harassment as the lack of information of private area among children. The preventive program can be built from the infusing important aspects from very beginning age. The use of puppet can be implemented from the first creation stage, after the teacher finishes the Big Book reading to children. She communicated to find out pecific characters that are closed to children’s daily life and easily memorized by children: a boy, a girl, a mother, a father, an aunt, an uncle, a stranger, a police, and a teacher. Next, after the printed character or the ready to color characters were available in the following stage, the children were involved in coloring the character and creating the story, therefore they were sensing the self�belonging to the puppet. The research proved that visual aid helped the process of instilling the core message to children, and empowering them to say no against bad touch. In the process of transferring the messagre, certain aspects must be taken for granted. As private parts are not included in easy to be digested theme for children, considering the lack of information given by parents, the material transferred to these young learners should be well tailored to their age. The selection of language should also fit to children’s psychological development. For the shy characterized students, the help of visual aid was considered as a good idea as it helped them without telling their ideas verbally, they were represented through their visualisation of puppet selection. Regarding children’s response to the use of puppet as the media to educate children to know private area in order to prevent sexual harassment, they were fully engaged in the process although we did not directly mentioned about sexual harassement. When the teacher and the researchers communicated to them, the children answered both verbally and visually. For the case of shy children, although they were not answering the answer, they spoke through the selection of visual (puppet) media.
