Consent & Body Safety and How to Teach it to Children
Whether you are a parent, caregiver, or ally of a toddler up to a teen, the important subject of consent and body safety should be a frequent topic in your home and/or lives.
As data indicates, 25 percent of women and one out of thirteen men are sexually abused by the age of 18, and it’s also well documented that the long-term effects of sexual violence can be devasting from depression, suicidal ideation, alcohol and/or drug abuse, and more.

As shared in one of her many educational books, “Teaching young children about body boundaries, both theirs and others, is crucial to a child’s growing sense of self, their confidence and how they should expect to be treated by others. A child growing up knowing they have a right to their own personal space, gives that child ownership and choices as to what happens to them and to their body. It is equally important a child understands, from a very young age, they need to respect another person’s body boundary and ask for their consent when entering their personal space.”
