This year we are all talking about consent. Parents are worried that their teenagers are struggling with what it means. Do boys respect girls when they say ‘no’? Do girls understand their own right to say no?

Her book is called Let’s Talk About Body Boundaries, Consent and Respect. Here, Jayneen explains how parents can help their children be empowered, safe and confident.
