A colorful story demonstrating the meaning of consent and the power of establishing boundaries.
When a new student joins Andie's class and happily greets everyone with a hug, Andie is faced with an all-too-common dilemma. While Andie wants to make a new friend, they are not entirely comfortable hugging the newcomer. After a talk with Andie's dad about the meaning of consent and the importance of establishing boundaries, Andie has a big choice to make. Will Andie ignore their instincts or boldly communicate how they feel?
Andie's experience celebrates the identity, mind, body, heart, and soul of a child while also allowing space for self-reflection and advocacy.
