No one has the right to treat you badly. The Government should, in every way protect young people from maltreatment, exploitation and abuse. It's also the Government's responsibility to intervene when parents do not care for or are unable to care for their children.
 
If you have been neglected, abused or tortured you have the right to help and support. All people have the right to an environment where their self-respect and dignity are respected.
