Since her job is literally shaping the minds of America’s youth, that’s where she started. “Whenever I get frustrated about the state of our country, it inspires me to proactively teach my kids to DO BETTER,” she wrote.
So, she crafted a lesson on consent in a simple enough format that even 9-year-olds could understand.
The chart is pretty straightforward and honestly, genius. How she breaks down the concept using an example of something as innocent, yet also personal, as hugging. She also lists several other examples of things that children know they’d have to ask consent for.
Notice, however, that sex isn’t mentioned a single time on the chart, but the same ideas apply to everything Liz mentions in the lesson.
