We need to encourage children to take control of their body and personal space from an early age.
Children may not always understand their rights and so it is important to teach them about consent. As adults we must not assume that all situations are comfortable for children.
This book can act as a tool for teachers, parents and health professionals in assisting children to understand the concept of consent. It also provides examples of situations which may be uncomfortable for some children and teaches them that in those situations, they can choose whether to give or not give consent.
