Watch: Parents Teaching Kids Consent


Here is a new video that offers a significant perspective at how parents bring up the topic of sex and consent with their kids. This video produced by Cut shows parents explaining the meaning of consent to their children.

With the increasing number of teenage and unwanted pregnancy and rape, topics like this is very important to discuss. See video below:

While the video didn’t touch much on sexuality, the conversation emphasized the importance of consent. From defining the word as “giving permission” to encouraging the kids to speak up if someone is ignoring the concept of consent (”If Ken is not acting appropriately it’d be good if his friends kind of move him back”), most of the parents came back to one line: “No means no.” One mom even added: “Maybe even means no. Got it? Good.”
