Kids' consent matters. But not everyone in the family gets that and especially grandparents with their overwhelming love. This mom talks about this matter and stresses its importance to improve in this regard as it's totally the kids' consent if they want a kiss or a hug.
When it comes to kids and consent, we don’t generally think much and overlook it but with times changing, parents are teaching kids the importance of consent and their bodies from an early age so they know the difference between good touch, bad touch, and so many other things.
The older generations, like our grandparents, are more likely to fail in understanding that even kids sometimes don’t like hugging or kissing their family members. No matter how pure their love and intentions are like every other grandparent on earth.
Particularly, this one mom on TikTok caught our attention on how acutely she explained the importance of a kid's consent when you want to express your love. Either they are grandparents or some other relatives, they should ask before giving a kid a hug or kiss. Might be possible the kid doesn't want it and feels forced.
In other situations, when parents declare the boundaries then adults may react weirdly by saying to the child that he doesn't love me and things like that which is totally awful. And is absurd and a total violation of the kid's consent.
This mother talks about kids' consent when grandparents kiss and hug them and received a mixed response from the public. Some agreed with her teachings and anger while others strongly negated her point of view and said that's something totally natural and pure.
Some agreed while saying she is doing something quite good in teaching her daughter early about this matter.
