Sexual Harassment Public Service Announcement
Recently one incident made me think about this subject. Can you Imagine an incident in which a two and half years old girl been sexually harassed by a human being? This happened not in a European Country. You are well known about the Gods own Country and the same incident happened in Kerala before couple of weeks. I was shocked after knowing about this incident. This moment I feel ashamed of myself to be a citizen of this place. News about sexual harassment is new thing. But be aware of the cheating digs that may occur in your life.
In Kerala Girls and women have being suffering different harassment in their life. The most wondering thing about that there is no separate law to prevent these types of incidents here. Some are getting bitter experiences from their working atmosphere. Unfortunately even small children are becoming victims of these brutal sexual harassments.
Let me narrate the incident that I pointed out in the beginning. This happened to a poor family (father, mother and a small girl aged 2 and half years). They haven’t any proper home or shelter to live. Earning a living with the money getting from selling scraps. This family used to sleep in the veranda of some shops or something like that. Even though they were poor they were happy with what they have.
One night a human being (I can’t imagine that he is a human being) took this small girl while here parents were in deep sleep. That rascal raped that girl and during this brutal incident she lost her life. Next day morning parents unable to find their daughter with them. After searching they found the lifeless body like a rose flower which been scattered into pieces. No mother in this world can bare this. She became unconscious and the poor couples lost their world.
Incident became Top box news in Papers and police investigate with full speed. At last police got the man who did the heart breaking brutal murder. Law gave him the ultimate judgment of Death.
Just think about this incident. World is going from where to where? These kinds of incidents may occur in your life too. So we have to be well prepared to resist and have to make sure sexual harassment won’t happen with our children. In my opinion parents can do lot more things in this regards than any other one.
First of all there should be a good relationship between parents and their children. Whether it is boy or girl they should be in an atmosphere that they can share their problem with parents. If children get this kind of treatment from home, it will be a great relief and courage for them. Let your children speak freely in any of the matter in their life. Start things from the family itself. Make your children aware of the situations and let them be responsive. Mothers can do lot things in this.
Some may not know what to do in some bitter situations. For an example, there is a chance of harassments for girls while traveling in busses. (In krala bus is the major mode of transport) Most of the times girls used to keep silent and this will be a paved way of encouragement for those men who involved these dirty deeds. Just think about the point that I mentioned above. If the girl responds quickly for this misdeed, other people will know about the misbehavior and they can bring that man in front of law. So make sure that your children are bold enough to deal with these kinds of situations.
Never allow your children to stay with strangers. We can expect sex harassment even within the family. So be more careful in this regard as well. We have to take care teenagers. This is the age where there used to occur sexual attraction towards the opposite gender. This is the perfect time to give sexual education to your children and it will be so effective if they got it from parents itself. Don’t feel shame in this regard. Explain your children about sex in a manner that they can understand and this will be so influence in your children as well. If you are reluctant to give information in this subject, they will definitely try to get it form out side and it will not be as safe and secure as yours. So first of all maintain a good relationship with our children and after that you won’t feel any sort of hesitation to give them the best sexual education.
Another major area where you have to keep an eye is on Internet. This is a medium where we can connect with this entire world. Internet is a good source of information. You can use it in a manner to get better knowledge. But this same World Wide Web is also proved that sometimes it may become disastrous as well. In this hi-fi life structure this may became a villain in your children’s life. Online friendship is common nowadays. There are so many cheating and harassment going on through online. So your children must be aware of the good and bad side of internet. Never allow them to be an addict of computer or Internet.
Education is the tool that parents can use in a useful manner to avoid all sorts of harassments that may occur in the life of their children. So use this tool in a manner that they can realize a situation and act accordingly. Let us hope for Bright future of Children. Because they are the one who will be leading the next generation.
