Parental consent for a fieldtrip. Informed consent to participate in a study. We throw the word consent around without thinking about it too much, but what about sexual consent? What is it and what do we need to teach our kids about it?
One of my proudest moments in 16 years of teaching happened during our first iGuy pilot program last January. At the end of the two-hour session, our facilitator Andrew asked the boys to share with the group something about themselves that their peers may not know.
