I find this topic fascinating because I have a 7 year old daughter. I think of this lesson of being able to 'no' often when we play a game, which we've been playing for over 4 years: for some reason my daughter loves to be tickled. She gets to set the rules: she gets to say 'go' and she gets to say 'stop'. And when she says 'stop', the tickling immediately stops. When we first started playing this, I actually thought: 'this is a good lesson for her to become aware of the control she has in relationships and the boundaries she can set'.

I think it's small actions like this that teach girls that become women how to set appropriate boundaries and be comfortable saying 'no' or 'stop'. Maybe all girls should be taught the 'tickle game'.
