'I'm going to change your nappy, is that OK?': Expert claims parents should ask babies for permission before changing a diaper.
Deanne Carson said she recognized that babies are unable to give an answer, but said it's important to use eye contact to teach them their response matters.

On a segment aired on consent laws, she said: "We work with children from three years old. We work with parents from birth […] about how to set up a culture of consent in their homes so 'I'm going to change your nappy now, is that OK'.
Of course a baby is not going to respond 'yes mum that's awesome, I'd love to have my nappy changed'. But if you leave a space, and wait for body language and wait to make eye contact then you're letting that child know that their response matters."

This is exactly why we now have a spoiled Generation. Parents that fail to exert authority when raising their children, those children have no respect for anyone. They believe the adults must earn their respect.
Authority is a basic health requirement in children's lives. Children with a spoiled upbringing are used to having their demands met by their parents and all others in authority, and that in turn makes them unprepared for the realities of adult life. Children no longer have boundaries.
Teaching a child, that can’t even respond, that they have the authority to allow you to change their diaper is absurd. We appear to be going backwards as a society. We are not improving, but creating an impossible future.
