Sex Expert Says Parents Must Seek Consent Before Changing Baby's Diaper

She said parents should not change nappies without asking for child's consent

The ABC has drawn criticism and ridicule for airing an interview with a "sexuality expert" who claims that parents should ask their babies for consent prior to changing their nappies.

When asked to give an example of how parents could establish a consent culture with their infant child, Carson said parents could ask questions such as, "I'm going to change your nappy now, is that okay?".

Speaking during the segment, she said she works with children from birth on issues of consent.

"Of course the baby is not going to respond 'yes mum, that's awesome".

Deanna gets a "The Princess Diaries"-esque makeover halfway through the movie and finds herself reborn as a result". And in the new issue of People , the 47-year-old actress explained how she deals with the negative energy.

"I think it's very legitimate we teach children from an early age that their bodies are their bodies and they have to give consent to get people to touch them". But if you leave a space and wait for body language and wait to make eye contact then you are letting that child know that their response matters'. Child behavior expert Nathalie Brown opined babies can not give their consent for anything let alone for changing diapers because the concept of consent is too complicated for them to grasp. Do you agree with these comments about consent, or do they take things too far?

Some expressed that asking a baby for consent to change its diaper, even if they understood, might have a negative effect on its understanding of consent.

But her simply advice has been ridiculed and laughed at by parents and commentators who describe it as "lefty lunacy". "She's saying you should ask the baby if it's OK". Parents, some argued, do whatever they must to take care of their kids, regardless if their children want it or not. However, Carson might want to emphasize how different "getting consent" from a baby might be from just communicating to them what's happening when they're having their diaper changed. "One in three girls, one in seven boys will be sexually assaulted by the time they are eighteen years old". The work we do with children, teachers and parents is global best practice in abuse prevention.
