It reads:

“I am 5. My body is my body. Don’t force me to kiss or hug.”

The meme likewise emphasizes:

“I am learning about consent and your support on this will keep myself safe for the rest of my life.”

It also came with an excerpt from an article entitled “I don’t own my child’s body,” by Katia Hetter, CNN writer and producer.

In the said article, she mentioned that telling children to give kisses or hugs to unwanted people is the same as telling them that their bodies do not belong to them – which, in the long run, might potentially make them vulnerable to sex abusers.
