Its Your Body

You are in Charge of Your Body.
You have the right to decide who can touch you and how. It's unfair for someone to touch you when you do not want to be touched.

Trust Your Feelings.
Pay attention to that "Uh-Oh" feeling.

If Anyone Touches You in a Way You Do Not Like, Say "No!"
and Get Away.

Tell Someone About it.
Keep telling until you get the help you need.
You can call 1-800-CHILDREN for more information.
Or, call the Baltimore County Police at 410-887-5741,
or the Baltimore County Department of Social Services at 410-887-2800.

It's Not Your Fault.
It's not fair for others who are bigger or older than you to hurt you or
to trick or force you to do something you do not want to do.
