Aren’t children the most precious beings in this world? They are loving, adorable and the things they say can be so funny sometimes and even wise. Every protective instinct raises to the surface when you see them.
But the protective instinct, it seems, is not in everyone. There are some perverts out there who instead of protecting these precious ones, are all out to harm them by sexually abusing them and leaving them with scars that will haunt them the rest of their lives. Some of these people are sometimes strangers or some person in authority of the child like a caretaker at a children’s home or a babysitter and sometimes even members of their own family.
Children who have been abused find it difficult to tell their parents or anyone else that they have been sexually abused because they feel that it was their fault or they asked for it which is exactly what the pervert wants them to feel so that he or she can continue abusing the child. Sometimes, when they tell the truth, they are not believed.
Awareness should be created in social meetings, churches, schools, offices etc about child sexual abuse. People need to be made aware of how to detect signs of child sexual abuse so that the child can be given the proper help at the right time and can be taken away from that position of being abused.
It is a problem which is on the rise in the world and we need to protect our children from such kind of people. We need to give our children a safe place to grow up in. We already have the laws to protect them but we also need to strengthen the laws and stronger right thinking people to implement those laws without fear.
