Description

What exactly is consent? Why does it matter? How can you negotiate your place in the world while respecting other people’s boundaries, and have them respect yours? 

Can We Talk About Consent? breaks down the basics of how to have healthy relationships in every aspect of life for readers aged 14 years and older.

Consent is a powerful word, but not everyone understands exactly what it means. This clearly written, stylishly illustrated guide explains clearly what consent means and why it matters—for all of us.
  • With honest explanations by experienced sex and relationships educator Justin Hancock, children will learn how consent is a vital part of how we connect with ourselves and our self-esteem, the people close to us and the wider world.
  • Readers will uncover how to develop and maintain relationships, how to manage and avoid negative relationships, and will learn more about equality and respect.
  • Covers a broad range of topics, including: how we greet each other; how to choose things for ourselves; how we say no to things we don't want to do; communicating and respecting choices in sexual relationships; the factors that can affect a person's ability to choose; and how to empower other people by giving them consent. 
  • Colorful, striking illustrations by Fuchsia MacAree help children relate what they read to the world around them.
This guide to consent will set young people on the path to a lifetime of healthy relationships.
