Maryville, Steubenville, Anywhereville: Talking with Kids about Consent and Sexuality

We must begin talking about the concept of consent. We need to be sure that adolescents understand what consent means, in which situations one can never assume consent, and how to seek help when they or someone else is having their right to consent violated. It’s up to adults to be sure that every child is taught that there are no “blurred lines.” No means no, and when someone is incapacitated for any reason, they cannot give consent. That’s all there is to it.
