Lessons for:


    – Be cautious when interacting with strangers online or in person. Never give out personal information or agree to meet someone without a trusted adult’s presence.

    – Remember that your body is yours alone, and no one has the right to hurt or exploit you. If someone is making you feel uncomfortable or scared, seek help immediately.
