Does any of these behaviour raise a suspicion in any adults mind?
Do you understand what the child is trying to say? .It doesn't matter if the one is a boy or girl. All over the world,and more so In South Africa,such behaviour is barely recognised to be caught and punished ,.
Every child in this lockdown needs to know they need not be ashamed ,and adults who faced it in childhood ,and are victims themselves ,need to speak out and tell their stories.
Use this hashtag to join in with your voice,remain anonymous and send out your clips or posts ..Message,email or voicemail,but Donot keep quiet.
Any woman who has faced abuse of a sexual nature in their childhood ,use this hashtag in your status,so that others might recognise the magnitude of the problem .
Irrespective of our age,we stand with solidarity with those who have been abused .
Let the government make the List of Paedophiles Public.
Legal Proceedings does not help ,and extends more trauma for the victim .Rather they should go for immediate arbitrations...
Let us share our care ..
