Can I check your diaper?

Litsa asks Arianne's permission before checking her diaper. By using this strategy, Litsa helps Arianne feel involved in the situation and becomes a powerful role model, communicating respect for Arianne and her body. Doing diaper checks with children, instead of to children, is always a better way for educators to proceed.
