Consent: Can I get some FRIES with that?
Show Notes

What's an out-code? And how do I teach my kid about consent? It's all here in our very first episode of Fostering Parenthood. We meet with former foster youth Tamar and caregiver Dayna Freier, who give their take on explaining consent and bodily autonomy to your foster youth. 

When people think of “consent” they may think of teenagers learning of sexual consent, but it starts way early than that. In this episode, we discuss how to apply consent and bodily autonomy principles with foster youth. Our guest Dayna Freier provides tips and tools on what she does with her kiddos to help them understand consent and bodily autonomy.

Guests on the show:

Tamar: Former foster youth, mom, member of the Youth Advisory Board at the Reproductive Health Equity Project 

Dayna Freier: Caregiver and mom, Director of Operations at Fostering Unity
