What is consent and permission?

Consent is when you are allowed to do something and permission is when you are allowed to do something, an example of this is if a photo is shown online with the person’s permission.

It’s okay to say no.

It’s okay to say no because sometimes you don’t have to do something that a person is asking you to do. However you can’t sometimes have a choice to say yes or no. Your friends also have to ask permission to do something that involves you like adding a new person in your group or telling your personal details, also some companies have to ask your personal details but you can say no to telling your details.

An example for not asking permission to tell people your friend’s personal information.

A story about not telling permission is a boy called Zishan invited his friend Maisie into his game Maisie she says she likes the world and says for Zishan to be a game designer. The next day, Zishan realises that lots of strangers in his world he asks Maisie why there is so many people in his world, she says that they are friends from school but Zishan is angry that she has not asked for permission to tell people the code to get into Zishan’s world, Zishan says you should have asked for permission instead of inviting people I do not know. This is wrong because Maisie has not asked for permission for people in Zishan’s world. She should have asked for permission from Zishan so he could have said yes or no.
