Our Legal Director, Morgan Lamandre, shares her experience about using Valentine’s Day as a way to discuss consent with her sons.
Valentine’s Day is not a holiday I look forward to when it comes to my sons’ class parties because I always have to provide commentary when reading the cards they receive. Although they are both very young, I think it’s very important to talk to them about consent. So when they get cards that demand hugs and kisses, we have a conversation about consent. In the past couple of years I have seen Valentine’s Day cards about consent, but nothing that would be age appropriate for my sons, so I became inspired to make some Valentine’s Day cards about consent that are age appropriate for kids. I thought I might not be the only one with this feeling, so I thought I would share them so more people could use them.
