A large number of bad practices, which at some point in history were accepted as correct, are currently carefully reviewed to try to improve as a society. This has resulted in popular movements such as Body Positivity, which advocates the acceptance of any body type regardless of race, gender, or appearance.
It should be noted that a large number of people have wanted to turn around the correct meaning of the movement, arguing that they want to normalize “being unhealthy”, but no, it is not about that. In general terms, they only want to create awareness about accepting ourselves as we are and about stopping practices such as giving opinions about other people’s bodies.
We are happy to see that the impact of this idea has reached schools. In this case, it comes from incredible teachers like Cami Leiva, originally from Chile, who through her TikTok account, @guaimallencami, shared the moment when she and her students sing the well-known melody of If you really want to applaudbut with a totally different letter that we leave you below:
If it’s not your body, you don’t have to comment. If it’s not your body, you don’t have to comment. If nothing good to say, you should not open your mouth. If it’s not your body, you don’t have to comment.

Children, who because of the voices could be in preschool or beginning their primary education, learn through the repetition of songs, in this way certain phrases remain engraved in their heads, many times, for a lifetime. For this reason the video has been so applauded, because we are all happy about the positive changes that are being made in educational institutions and that we would have liked to learn in the past.
The tender video already has one million views and just under 1,300 comments, most of which are congratulatory and many others suggest that all schools should implement the song in their classrooms.
‘I wish many schools would copy it’; ‘Adopt me, teacher Honey’; ‘If they had taught that to my classmates, I would not have suffered so much bullying’; “How great that you incorporate this new form of education, Chile needs it a lot.”
