"A timely new resource to help kids understand and resolve conflicts stemming from issues of consent. Consent isn't just about sex. From an early age, kids are taught to respect personal space. They learn to express themselves about how they feel. As much as they need to be taught that kissing, hugging and touching are sometimes appropriate and sometimes not, it is important that they consider that consent is needed for commonplace interactions like borrowing things, sharing possessions, or giving away someone's secrets. And that consent cannot be assumed, even if it has been given at a different time. This illustrated book offers information, quizzes, comics and real-life situations to help kids think critically about what consent is, and what it looks and sounds like when it is given or not given. Considered from the viewpoints of those who are in a position to give consent, those who are in a position to be given consent, and witnesses to conflict around consent, this issue is identified, examined and put into a context that kids can understand and use to navigate issues of personal rights and emotional safety."-- Provided by publisher.
