How should parents educate their children about consent?

Donald Trump's locker room comment has sparked a conversation about how parents should talk to their children about asserting their own agency.

The US presidential hopeful and property mogul came under fire for his comment on groping women during an interview in 2005.

In response to the issue, writer and equal rights activist Staceyann Chin raised eyebrows in a clip where she teaches her 3-year-old daughter about speaking up about anything that might make her uncomfortable as a lesson in giving consent. However, many have lauded her for taking initiative in developing her character and helping her become more assertive.
