What Kids Can Do
Know your rights. Nobody, including your parents, can:
* Hit you hard enough to cause an injury.
* Leave you by yourself for a long time.
* Force you or tell you to have any kind of sex with anyone.
Anyone who does any of these things has a problem. They need help.
Don't be afraid to ask for help. Don't believe anybody who says something bad will happen if you talk. Things can only get better than they are.
If you know a kid who is being hurt physically or sexually, call 1-800-4-A-CHILD and talk about it. A counselor will tell you just what to do.
