An important lesson for all of us!
Whenever I’ve encouraged my kids to give their friends a good-bye hug, I’ve always noticed that they do it in the most awkward manner. We tell our kids to keep their bodies and hands to themselves, yet we give them mixed messages when we tell them to hug it out with someone.
In some ways, kids have better instincts than we do. And that’s what I’ve decided to make a change when it comes to my kids and they way they say good-bye to their friends, and it mostly has to do with the rape culture that is so prevalent in our society today.
Teaching our children about consent is on all of us!
