As Christmas day approaches, I think it is important for adults to be reminded about consent

As Christmas day approaches, I think it is important for adults to be reminded about consent. This is about trusting our children to decide how and with whom they will share their affection. Affection should never be forced from a child as they will learn that they cannot speak up about what happens to them when an adult approaches them.
I particularly love the final line of this article “If an adult gets offended because a child doesn’t kiss them or want to be near them, then really it’s up to the adult to address these feelings of abandonment, not the child to make it better.”
Enough said.
