Rights For Children

I have the right to be here.
I have the right to be a child.
I have the right to belong to a loving family.
I have the right to play.
I have the right to make a mistake.
I have the right to be treated with respect.
I have the right to proper food, clothing, and cleanliness.
I have the right to learn.
I have the right to tender care when I am sick or hurt.
I have the right to do things for myself and to get help if I need it.
I have the right to express myself without interruption.
I have the right to move freely at my own initiative.
I have the right to make my own friends.
I have the right to make choices.
I have the right to enter into meaningful activities.
I have the right to develop at my own pace and to be unhurried.
I have the right to privacy.
I have the right to be listened to.
