A recent petition circulated by Sydney school girl Chanel Contos called for schools to provide better education on consent, and to do so much earlier. In the petition, which has been signed by more than 5,000 people, Contos writes that her school… provided me with life changing education on consent for the first time in year 10. However, it happened too late and came with the tough realisation that amongst my friends, almost half of us had already been raped or sexually assaulted by boys from neighbouring schools. So, what core information do young people need to know about consent? Who is responsible for teaching it? How can parents help their kids to learn consent?
This seminar is to help parents support their kids to know what consent means, how to give it, how to withhold it and to understand how the teenage brain works in such situations.
