This worries me, it is more dangerous than people realise. If you ask your baby for consent and they don’t want their nappy changed what are you going to do? You’re going to change it anyway because it is bad for them to sit in poo can burn them and make them sick do what you end up teaching them and any siblings watching is that it doesn’t matter whether or not you consent I’ll do it anyway. This is definitely not something we want to be teaching our kids. What we need to be doing is explaining in age appropriate ways what they are in control of. Unfortunately this extreme talk ridicules the important message of teaching our children about consent.
