Consent is like being ruler of your own country... population: YOU! This is a smart, playful guide to consent and bodily autonomy, packed with bright and energetic illustrations. Readers will learn about boundaries and how to set them; ways to respect themselves and others; what to do if someone makes them feel uncomfortable or unsafe; and much more. Along the way, they'll be encouraged to reflect on (and improve!) their own behavior and to practice consent in their daily lives.
This humorous and insightful book from the co-creator of the viral "Tea Consent" video is the perfect teaching tool, conversation starter, and insightful, empowering resource for educators, kids, and families everywhere. With clear explanations, fun illustrations, and expertly-presented information, Consent (for Kids!) is an empowering introduction to consent, bodily autonomy, and how to respect yourself and others.
"Eight short chapters break down larger concepts into specific situations and equip young readers with knowledge of their rights, identify various relational red flags (abuse of power, control, inappropriate grooming, etc.), and offer ways to articulate and assert themselves. Readers are also invited to reflect on their own behaviors and encouraged to practice asking for consent, listen with discernment, and safely support friends in difficult situations.... The result is a digestible, memorable volume meant to spark enlightened action: 'CONSENT TAKES PRACTICE. The more that people around you practice consent, the more natural it is for everyone.'" — Publishers Weekly
