The ways to consent and the situations where consent is needed

I feel like we should have more discussions around consent and what that looks like: the different ways to consent and the different kinds of situations where consent is needed. Because, right now, it's just like, "you got to get consent, period." But there's not really much education for youth about what that really means - what that really looks like, and the different forms of consent. So, I think with more education around that it would kind of help.
