The Bum Drum Conundrum

July 11, 2019

Malina's friends have got a new game — The Bum Drum. She loves to play with her friends, but not when they're playing this! 
Malina doesn't like The Bum Drum game and, after telling her mum, she learns the importance of speaking up and saying "NO".
After finding out she is upset, Malina's friends learn to listen to each other and that respect and consent is REALLY important.
The Bum Drum Conundrum teaches children about consent and that saying "no" is ok.
