Hello!

How silly, if I asked my 20 month old if he wants his nappy changed he would just say ‘no!’ What do I do then? Let him sit in it and get a bad nappy rash or go ahead even though he has not given consent? I don’t know which is worse. Do I want to teach my son that his ‘no’ can be violated? I’d rather teach him that as his parent I know what is in his best interests right now, and as he gets older he will have more and more control over what happens to him. Consent is important, but common sense in the parental relationship should trump the baby/ toddler’s feelings because they do not yet have the ability to be reasoned with.
