An important topic for discussion about children
A friend of Bill Brande Lotte Daly is a mother herself. In a recent interview on the issue raised “this morning.” Remember how we learn about independence on our bodies, how we learn to give consent when we grow up and start at birth.
Lottie argues we should inform our kids if we’re about to change our little one’s diapers. We should allow kids to become aware that their body own is theirs, and not ours.
We must also make sure that sure that our children are aware of what is happening. And they are fine with the fact that you are about to do something that includes their bodies. Lotte continues, arguing that “giving permission” is something that needs to be discussed and addressed before our children become teenagers.
more on ways we can tackle these topics with our kids. As an example, she discusses the way her own daughters tend to feel uncomfortable about anyone other than their mother tickling them. She says she deliberately asks her own daughters whether they enjoy being tickled—and the answer is “yes”. However, if she asks if it’s fine for somebody else to tickle them instead, the girls say “no”. It’s because they’re apprehensive about not being familiar with somebody else who isn’t their mother.
