Book Review: Consent (for Kids!): Boundaries, Respect, and Being in Charge of You is a fantastic book that is perfect for starting important conversations with children about consent.
A short overview of this book
Consent (for Kids!) : Boundaries, Respect, and Being in Charge of You by Rachel Brian is the perfect book for starting important conversations with kids about consent.
This book has two titles (exact same book), with the other being – Respect : Consent, Boundaries and Being in Charge of YOU.
Consent can be a complicated subject for kids to understand, but the author simplifies it in a way that is both entertaining but educational. Plus the comic book layout (or graphic novel) means that it may be more enticing for older kids to read.
Sexting is also talked about, in regards to not sharing pictures of people without their permission. Sexting itself isn’t mentioned, but the book can be used to talk about sending nudes or for teaching this lesson BEFORE it becomes a problem.
I really like this book as it is comprehensive and covers nearly every angle of the consent conversation(s) and more!
You can learn more on this page, about how to talk to kids about sex education.
