Sexaul harrasment on the Girl Child

Posted October 16, 2020 from Nigeria

As much as parents doesn't want their girls to be spoilt or get involved with Early sex, they still need to know and be enlighten on it imperatively.

Recording from one of our school tours on educating and exposing the Girl Child on her SelfWorth. We meet about 4 little girls between the  9 to 10 years of age who doesn't have an idea of what Dignity or Self worth is all about, these girls have already started experiencing molestation from some men in same compound, taking advantage of them and shutting them up, until we spoke on it they never knew it was a bad practice they were doing with the so called men.

So you can see, it is in parents  and guidance jurisdiction to sit them down at Early age and without shame or shyness explain in details all about sex and what they should do when encounter sexaul harrasment.

Hello Ujunice,
Your message is spot on that sexual and reproductive health education is a must and a necessary tool to enhance the safety of girls. I wonder whether parents could be equipped with the tools of how to go about it. A lot of parents think that if they don't say anything then there'll be no experimentation and therefore that means safety, while in truth, silence could mean greater danger from sexual predators. Good on you for being a good 'auntie' :)

That's very true Ma. A lot of parents either lack the right knowledge or are carried away with their businesses trying to fend for their children but ignoring the main assignment they have on these children.

Hi Ujunice, I wholeheartedly agree with Nini, your message is spot on! We need early messages worldwide around sexual and reproductive health. One thing I think is so important is educating around what consent looks and feels like, which I wished I had also been educated on as a girl. More than no means no, I like the new slogan only YES (or an emphatic YES) means yes! We need to empower young girls to own their own bodies and break the silence around sexuality. A huge YES to your post and a big hug in solidarity from Montreal, Canada,
Adriana

Hello, Emilia,

Yes, I agree with Nini and Adriana, this is spot-on indeed. Educate the children at an early stage so they will know how to protect themselves. Thanks for sharing!
