Parenting expert Christy Keating and I discuss how parents can teach kids about consent starting in preschool

Show Notes

Learning about consent should start in preschool

Consent is not a one time talk at age 16; most sex education should be relationship education starting in the preschool years. This includes teaching about respect, setting and respecting boundaries, and advocating for yourself

Self-confidence & level of deservability are key to consent

Building solid relationships at home becomes the template for all future relationships and it allows kids to develop self-confidence and a belief that they deserve to take care of themselves

Assertvie vs aggressive

Girls need to learn the difference between being assertive vs aggressive; this is best done with role playing at home

Accessing & trusting your intuition

We discuss the importance of teaching kids how to access and trust their intuition in order to take care of themselves; also how alcohol and drugs blunts your internal alarm system

Christy discusses some of the legal aspects of consent that parents and kids should know

Handling & preventing sexting

We discussed how parents can handle and prevent sexting

Discussions about boundaries and consent should be a continuous process throughout childhood; don’t wait until they are ready to go off to college!
