Description

We often think about consent in a sexual context, but it actually lies at the heart of our daily life - in interactions with family and friends, and in the respect and empathy we show ourselves and others! From the bestselling author of The Every Body Book, this lovingly illustrated guide introduces consent in all its many forms - in a way that is inclusive of orientation, neurodiversity, gender identity, faith and ethnicity. Delving into issues of body safety, verbal and nonverbal cues, boundaries, puberty and privacy, the correct terminology for body parts, developing a safe adult support system, and recognizing gut feelings - this will help children build confidence and shame-free knowledge. It will also offer ideas around consent nuances, like power dynamics, intellectual disabilities, pornography, sexism, and transphobia. With a glossary and further discussion questions - this is the perfect book for young people and their families to explore together.
