Do Parents Really have to get Consent Before Changing Baby Diapers?

People typically talk about consent in the context of some kind of sexual or physical activity with a partner. In a healthy relationship, both (or all) partners are able to openly talk about and agree on what kind of activity they want to engage in. Whether it’s holding hands, kissing, touching, intercourse, or anything else, it’s really important for everyone in the relationship to feel comfortable with what’s happening. The laws about consent vary by state and situation. It can make the topic confusing, but you don’t have to be a legal expert to understand how consent plays out in real life.

Consent requires knowing, voluntary and clear permission by word or action, to engage in a mutually activity. Each party has the responsibility to make certain that the other has consented before engaging in the activity. For consent to be valid, there must be, at the time of the activity, actual words or conduct indicating freely giving consent.

The issue of consent has extended to children – changing their diapers. An Australian expert by the name Deanne Carson stressed the need for this as it will in her own words “build a culture of consent in the baby from birth.”

While this has raised a lot of arguments with some persons stating that the age of the baby with prevent him from understanding the message been communicated talk more of giving a reasonable response, I am of the opinion that the consent initiated conversation between a mother and her baby will not only foster a healthy relationship between them but will also drive the culture to the subconsciousness of the child and invariably help develop his personality. Training a child begins immediately after delivery and I do not see anything wrong with imbibing a culture of consent in a child from an early stage.
