We want to keep children not only from becoming victims but also from becoming the perpetrators. Consent conversations have to include empathy, for a holistic approach to preventing abuse and assault. Try hands-on methods for teaching young children about empathy and consent. Learn the science behind physical manifestations of emotions, and how to use those to empathize with others.
