With My Permission: A Child's Guide to Understanding Consent (Paperback)
Baya and Bash have healthy self-esteem and when it comes to consent, they act as a team. They say it freely, demand it boldly, and are polite and full of zeal. With My Permission is a must-have for consent's big appeal. So teach it early, teach it now, teach kids daily, and show them how to make asserting bodily autonomy a lifelong vow
With My Permission is a powerful illustrative story that helps children understand the concept of consent and body autonomy. In each scenario, Baya and Bash demonstrate the action of consent through courtly rhymes by asserting the need for permission in situations involving their own person and belongings. In With My Permission, children learn to discern and respect their own boundaries and the boundaries of others. Developing an understanding of consent is fundamental to forming healthy relationships with family, friends and adults entrusted with their care. When children learn to exercise their consent they are less likely to become victims of sexual abuse and domestic violence. Children who take ownership over their bodies and belongings by requiring consent are far more likely to develop high levels of self-worth and confidence.
