Should Parents Ask For Permission Before Changing Their Child's Diaper?

One woman thinks that doing so will empower kids.

There’s a lady in Australia who thinks that it would be a good idea for parents to ask for their children’s permission…

That lady is Deanne Carson and she is the CEO of Body Safe Australia, an organization devoted to teaching sex education to children. She told Australia’s ABC News that she teaches parents to say things to their children like, “I’m going to change your nappy [diaper] now. Is that okay?” While she acknowledges that no child will respond in agreement to the prospect of having her diaper changed, Carson does note that when parents ask for permission that they are, “Letting that child know that their response matters.”
