How To Protect Your Child Against Molestation

I am one of the most paranoid people I know. I have sneaked up on my help many times whenever I leave her alone with my baby(I have trust issues when it comes to leaving my child with anyone). Having spoken with other mothers, I have come to the conclusion this is a common trait in mothers especially the new ones.

The statistics for kids that get sexually abused is staggering and more alarming than this are the numbers that are linked to family members or well trusted people. The news doesn’t help much and with a large number of the society tending towards depravity, keeping one’s mind out of the gutters is not easy.

As Christians we need to understand that God’s grace is one of the major things that works when bringing up child(ren) and we ought to pray for truckloads of that. However there are humanly possible things we can do to protect our kids and sensitize them so they don’t fall prey to these sexual predators.

I found this list on Facebook and I agreed with most part of it, so, I decided to share:-
Here is a list of things you need to teach your Child(ren) at early age:

1: Warn your Girl Child Never to sit on anyone's laps no matter the situation including uncles.

2: Avoid Getting Dressed in front of your child once he/she is 2 years old. Learn to excuse them or yourself.

3. Never allow any adult refer to your child as 'my wife' or 'my husband'

4. Whenever your child goes out to play with friends make sure you look for a way to find out what kind of play they do, because young people now sexually abuse themselves.

5. Never force your child to visit any adult he or she is not comfortable with and also be observant if your child becomes too fond of a particular adult.

6. Once a very lively child suddenly becomes withdrawn you may need to patiently ask lots of questions from your child.

7. Carefully educate your grown ups about the right values of sex . If you don't, the society will teach them the wrong values.

8: It is always advisable you go through any new Material like cartoons you just bought for them before they start seeing it themselves.

9. Ensure you activate parental controls on your cable networks and advice your friends especially those your child(ren) visit(s) often.

10. Teach your 3 year olds how to wash their private parts properly and warn them never to allow anyone touch those areas and that
includes you (remember, charity begins from home and with you).

11: Blacklist some materials/associates you think could threaten the sanity of your child (this includes music, movies and even friends and families).

12. Let your child(ren) understand the value of standing out of the

13: Once your child complains about a particular person, don't keep quiet about it.

Take up the case and show them you can defend them.

Remember, we are either parents or parents-to-be.

Have A Great Weekend .
