Expert Says Parents Should Ask Babies For Consent Before Changing Diapers

In the realm of parenting, where dirty diapers are as frequent as hugs, a fresh idea is causing a stir: asking babies for permission before changing their diapers. This concept has generated both interest and debate, leaving many puzzled and skeptical.

Deanne Carson, an expert in sexuality education, believes that parents should start talking about consent with their children from a young age. She argues that even babies can benefit from learning about consent.

Carson appeared on ABC to discuss the importance of non-verbal cues, such as eye contact, in early childhood development. She believes that even though babies can’t talk, parents can still show they value their input through non-verbal communication. By creating moments of anticipation and using non-verbal cues, parents can build a respectful relationship with their children.

However, like all contentious concepts, there are doubters. Numerous individuals online doubt the feasibility of obtaining consent from a baby who cannot understand the circumstances. Some even joke about the silliness of anticipating a verbal answer from an infant.

During this discussion, John Rosemond, a parenting expert, joins the conversation by opposing the seemingly harmless practice of high-fiving children. Rosemond believes that these actions weaken parental control and respect, which can lead to a lack of discipline later on.

What do you do if the baby refuses? Proceed anyway? That’s where the real issue lies.

She either has no experience wrestling a toddler during a diaper change or, even worse, she let her child sit in a dirty diaper until it was too late. OMG!

Parenting choices are important and can impact the relationship between parents and children. Discussions about topics like diaper changes and high-fives show how complex raising kids can be.

Are we spending too much time analyzing parenting, or are these discussions necessary for building healthy relationships? The ongoing debate shows that parenting is far from easy. It involves unexpected moments, difficulties, and even messy situations. However, one thing is for sure – the desire to learn and grow as a parent never stops.
