Physical and Sexual Harm
Your body is yours and no one else has the right to touch you unless you decide they can. If someone hits or punches you, or tries to touch you in ways that you don’t like or feel right …SAY NO and TELL SOMEONE!
If you tell someone and they don’t believe you … keep telling as many people as possible until someone does believe you.
And if your parents or even friends ….
tell you you’re bad or no good
call you names
tease you about your weight, clothes, skin color or anything else
If someone is making fun of you or writing bad things about you on web sites or through emails …..this is bullying and cyberbullying and it's not okay!
TELL SOMEONE. Tell your parents or teacher, counselor, or other trusted adult.
No one has the right to make hurtful remarks about you …even if they’re your parents!
You are as valuable as anyone else and deserve to be respected and treated as a valued human being. So don’t let anyone hurt you in any way.
someone tells you they'll hurt you if you tell -- don't
believe it! If Someone hurts you or makes you feel bad
... touches you in ways that are not okay .... You must
report it -- it will save you, your self-esteem, your
life ... Your future!
