Event description
Consent is about children’s verbal and nonverbal communication. and teaching them that their voice matters.

About this event

Teaching consent to kids can feel uncomfortable because adults often associate consent with sex. But consent in the early years isn’t about sex – it’s about tuning into children’s verbal and nonverbal communication, and teaching them that their voice matters. The building blocks of anatomy, boundaries and communication, form the foundation upon which sexual consent can later be learned.

  • By understanding their anatomy, kids can learn to protect their body and seek help when something is wrong.
  • By having their own boundaries affirmed, kids learn to respect the boundaries of others.
  • By seeing their communication cues recognized and respected, kids learn to recognize and respect the communication of others.

This session will provide parents and caregivers with the tools necessary to teach, model, and support kids as they come to know themselves and live in harmony with others from infancy through childhood.

Facilitated By: Allison Preyde, MA, Anova Public Education Coordinator
