“Who’s the boss of their own body?”
Chris Grady has slowly become Internet sensation. With his online comic series, Lunarbaboon, he documents everyday life of father with his two kids– 6 year old Moishe and 1 year old Matilda.
Chris told the Huffington Post that his partner and the mother of his two kids, Danielle, inspired the comic. “She is always telling our two children that they are the boss of their own bodies and that no one can touch, kiss, hug, them without their permission,” he stated.
“So, needless to say when Danielle went in to kiss my 1.5 year old and was forcefully pushed away with a loud ‘no,’ we were all very proud,” he continued.
While light in tone, Chris says that there is a deeper meaning to “Yours”. He stresses that every parent should talk to their child about the importance of consent.
“I hope the comic reminds parents that it is never too early to let our kids know that no one (parents, friends, Donald Trumps) have the right to put their hands on them. Everyone is the boss of their own body.”
We couldn’t put it better, Chris! We are so proud that you are teaching your children exactly what consent means!
