Over the last couple of years the Me Too Movement has opened up an active global dialogue that once felt somewhat relegated to a passionate minority (and a whispering majority). We are collectively exploring ways of disrupting patriarchal culture that perpetuates sexual violence, and one of the most powerful things we can do is raise humans that have a clear understanding of consent. When we communicate bodily respect to even the tiniest human, we are honoring and respecting them as a subject, as opposed to an object. We are teaching our children that they are an active participant in their human experience, and that all human beings are subjects with bodily agency. This is just the beginning of instilling our children with respect for others. There are so many ways that we can incorporate an understanding of consent into our children’s lives. Don’t force them to hug or kiss relatives. Teach them the proper names for their genitalia. Communicate what you are doing to a child during care giving activities like bath time and diaper changes. Encourage them to ask permission before hugging or kissing playmates. Explain that “no means no” and respect those boundaries when playing physical games like tickling and roughhousing. Be role model for empathy toward others in your daily interactions.
