Your rights!


Most teenagers feel that they don't have any rights but in fact we have many rights. Everybody has rights but not everybody know about their rights. Having rights means that you have a right to fulfilling life,the joys that it has to offer and everything that you need so that you can get the best out of life. You have a right to be treated well and the right not to be mistreated. You have a right to be listened to on all matters affecting you.

All of your rights say that you have a right:

  • to express yourself
  • to be heard and listened to properly.
  • to receive information in a way that you can understand and  remember.
  • to good health care and to be looked after properly.
  • All actions concerning you must be in your best interests and you will be the most important thing to consider.
  • You have a right to give your views freely in all things that affect you.
  • You have a right to privacy.
  • You have a right to be treated with dignity
  • You have a right to education.
  • You have the right to food.
  • You have the right to protection.
  • You have the right to shelter.
It is important that you know what your rights are and that you are able to use them. You have a right to be listen and I feel that this is one of the most important rights as long with the basic rights to food and shelter etc. The right to be listened is important so that you will have the chance to voice your views on things that you feel are very important.
