Kit and Arlo Find a Way: Teaching consent to 8–12 year olds is a much needed consent teaching resource for Grades 3 to 6.
An action-packed and relatable fictional chapter book, Kit and Arlo is a page-turning journey of upper primary school kids – Kit, Arlo, Harley and Vanya – developing and exploring friendships with plenty of ups and downs.
Entertaining and compelling as a standalone narrative, Kit and Arlo’s secret weapon is that it contains all of the complex components of consent and includes respectful relationships education in an age-appropriate format.

Hey Vanessa, just wanted to say thank you for such a brilliant session last night!!! You are awesome!! I greatly appreciate your info on understanding gender identity and the differentiation between genitals and gender. I think this clarified a way to think about what can often be a challenging concept for some...Once again many thanks for a truly great session.
