ask children before you touch them

lumpenspaceproletariat:

celibatesprites:

  • ask children before you hug them
  • ask children before you pick them up
  • if moving a child is unavoidable for their safety, at least warn them first and explain afterwards
  • this applies to disabled children
  • this applies to non- or pre-verbal children, since words are not the only kind of consent or language
  • treat a child as you wish people had treated you

children are people. they will remember you violating their boundaries for their whole lives and it will irreparably damage how they view their worth as people.

don’t teach your kids that they should unquestioningly accept touch no matter what. teach them they deserve respect.

this is a really on-point post. My youngest went through a phase of refusing to hug people and my parents were like, “she’s being rude” etc and i was like “buuut isn’t this actually a fantastic thing for a child esp for a little girl, to be able to tell people NO and assert her own boundaries even if it means risking disapproval??” like really it was awesome and im so proud of her. And really, you can have all the conversations about safety and abuse but the absolute best way to teach your kids about consent is to model it and show them with your own actions that their bodies are their own and NO ONE ELSE, including their family, are entitled to it.

If you ever date an asexual person be sure to get the specifics of their asexuality because the level of comfort with physical contact is different for all of us.

YES 
THIS IS SERIOUSLY IMPORTANT
