Creating Consent Culture with Kids
An Experiential Consent Education Curriculum
for Parents and Caring Adults
Creating a Culture of Consent
How we engage with our own children in a way that honors their bodily integrity and personhood and deeply instills in them their own yes and no, while also being in the real life stuff of sometimes of navigating complex real world conversations.
The ways consent is about sex, and the kinds of conversations we have with our kids about sex and what it means to offer real consent education,
and, really, it is about SO MUCH MORE THAN SEX.
This is consent education that is about a way of knowing one's one yes and know, and honoring another's yes and no. valuing respect for human dignity more than being nice or liked.
This is about how we spend time with youth in a way that does not ask them to be the adult and also truly listens rather than operating from an authoritarian model.
This is about how we instill the power of their own voice and the love of their own body's knowing.
This is about how we model consent culture, teach consent culture, celebrate consent culture.
