This Is My Body, and I Am in Charge
This Is My Body, and I Am in Charge encourages children and adolescents to learn the importance of self-awareness, safety, consent, respect, and healthy boundaries for themselves and others. Children who grow up understanding their rights have ownership of their bodies and feel safer and more comfortable expressing themselves about sensitive topics.
