It is no more news that the rate at which children are getting raped is alarming. It is therefore the work of the parent to prevent their ward against these vampires walking around in human’s clothing.
The bible says train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it (Proverbs 22:6). Training up involves a lot of thing, it will require your love, dedication, patience and focus. Trapped in every child is an Obama and Osama the one we pay attention to is the one that responds to us ultimately. Due to the technological advancement, children know things their parents are naïve about so it will do us a world of good to make them know when to alert us when these things happen and who to avoid;
Anyone that shows you bad movie, anyone that tries to remove your pants claiming it is a game, anyone that asks you to touch him/her, anyone that locks the door and wants you to be alone together, anyone that wants you to come to a dark place without telling your parents, anyone that wants to give you what you should not show your parents, anyone that tries to touch your private parts, anyone that tries to kiss you must be avoided and they must report such a person to you.
Let your children understand that it is not their fault if abuse had taken place but the fault of the predator. Please parents, take responsibilities for your children during holidays and stop pushing them to Uncles’ or people they have once told you they are no comfortable with. Whenever a child is not comfortable staying with somebody, don’t force the child. He/ she may be passing an information to you but afraid to speak out due to threat from the person. She must have experienced something she can’t tell you. Respect their opinions too.
Above all be your child’s best friend, let them be free to run to you for anything.
