HOW DO YOU GO BEYOND THIS ?
While there could be forums to discuss on this and stringent actions to be taken against the offenders; but one needs to start at this early. The most fundamental way to do so – is address it and talk about it. Right here in our homes, schools, colleges – amongst us , with our children.
Lets not make a hullabaloo about the most fundamental of the life process. If we talk to our children about their own bodies, their genitals, good touch – bad touch – we can empower them to understand abuse and raise a voice against it.
Talking about it is not a complex thing; it can be done very simply. Remember the jargon is in our head !
So before fighting sexual abuse – lets make conversations on understanding sex a norm and empower our children. Age appropriate conversations on this topic done from an early age will not only enable our children to fight against it but also start bringing in gender sensitization right from the beginning.
So AAO BAAT KAREN !!!!
