Let’s Talk about Body Boundaries, Consent and Respect

Sarah Jennings, Jayneen Sanders

Teaching young children about body boundaries, both theirs and others, is crucial to a child’s growing sense of self, their confidence and how they should expect to be treated by others.

A child growing up knowing they have a right to their own personal space, gives that child ownership and choices as to what happens to them and to their body. It is equally important a child understands, from a very young age, they need to respect another person’s body boundary and ask for their consent when entering their personal space.

This book explores these concepts with children in a child-friendly and easily-understood manner, providing familiar scenarios for children to engage with and discuss. It is important that the reader and the child take the time required to unpack each scenario and explore what they mean both to the character in the book, who may not be respecting someone’s body boundary, and to the character who is being disrespected. It is through these vital discussions that children will learn the meaning of body boundaries, consent and respect.

Learning these key social skills through such stories as ‘Let’s Talk About Body Boundaries, Consent and Respect’ and role-modelling by significant adults can, importantly, carry forward into a child’s teenage years and adult life.
