A Child’s Bill of Rights

 

1. A child has the right to decide who can and cannot touch any part of their body.

2. A child has the right, in fact the duty, to report to a safe person any time someone attempts to touch their body inappropriately.

3. A child has the right to set boundaries regarding any part of their own body.

4. A child has the right to dial 911 on the phone if they think they are in any danger from someone wanting to touch their body inappropriately and ask for help NOW.

5. A child has the right to be believed if they are honestly reporting any danger from someone touching or attempting to touch their body inappropriately.

6. A child has the right to run away or scream for help if someone approaches them in a manner that seems scary or “yucky”.

Please read these RIGHTS to your child frequently. They belong to them. Help them to understand what each one means.

Tell your child frequently:

Your body belongs to you; you can decide who touches it.”
