Empowering Children: Nurturing Consent, Respect and Autonomy

In this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to reflect on, and better understand their own feelings around children and consent. We will investigate how stories, songs, movies, and other forms of media influence our views about consent and children, and how these influences affect children’s views of consent. Participants need to come with an open mind and be willing to discuss a topic that may be sensitive and uncomfortable, as we explore ways in which we can teach children about consent, respect and body autonomy.

Living Inquiries:

Well-being and belonging.
Communication and literacies
Identities, social responsibility, and diversity.


Diversity and difference
Safety and respect
Multiple modes of communication
Social responsibility and justice

Suitable for ECE students, parents, intermediate and experienced early care and learning professionals working with children of all ages, from infants/toddlers to school age children, including children with extra support needs.
