Parents are the doting lovers of their children. They look after them and leave no stone unturned to get nothing but the best for their beloveds. Parents do this as they know that their child is completely dependent on them for everything. As the kid tries to make some sense of the world, it is the parent who always has to come to the rescue. The protective spirit of a parent always acts as a shield against all that can cause any harm the child.
Even then the reports of some tragic attacks on these little ones continue to surface. In the recent years there has been a spurt in these crimes. All the advancements in technology and availability of high-tech gadgets are failing the parents in their attempt to safeguard their child from the horror of child abuse. According to statistics of 2014, 53% of children are victims of sexual abuse, which is nothing short of a parent’s worst nightmare. As children are vulnerable and gullible they end up being the soft targets.
The best way to empower them is to talk to them at length about how they can be attacked and demonstrate the difference between a good and a bad touch. Kids might be impressionable, but they are also very instinctive. You might get surprised as to how quickly they grasp these nuances to raise the alarm at the right time. Don’t wait till the eleventh hour or for them to grow up as the little they are, the more endangered they are. Don’t hesitate to take this important step towards your child’s safety. A single incident of indecent behaviour from someone else can lead to serious repercussions on the psyche of the little one.
If you are going an extra mile in all the different aspects of parenthood, why leave the most important aspect; which is to teach them how to protect themselves. You can’t be there with them at all times. Make your child self-sufficient and reject the shame. Watch this video by PuraniDili Talkies that talk about good touch and bad touch.

Chetan Bhagat had no business slut shaming Uorfi Javed or any other woman. If he wants to 'guide' young men in the 'right direction' then he should take accountability for his words.
Chetan Bhagat, one of India’s bestselling authors, thought it was an ingenious idea to slut-shame Uorfi Javed, an Indian actress and influencer, at the Sahitya Aaj Tak literature festival.
“Phone has been a great distraction for the youth, especially the boys, spending hours just watching Instagram Reels. Everyone knows who Uorfi Javed is. What will you do with her photos? Is it coming in your exams or you will go for a job interview and tell the interviewer that you know all her outfits? On one side, there is a youth who is protecting our nation at Kargil and on another side, we have another youth who is seeing Uorfi Javed’s photos hiding in their blankets.”
Uorfi Javed responded with a video on her Instagram stories calling out Bhagat’s bluff. She shared the screenshots of his previous chat conversations with Ira Trivedi, author and yoga instructor, which came to light during the #MeToo movement.
While boys are taught to naturally own the space they enter, girls are taught to give up, to accommodate, to adjust since "it is their primary responsibility to keep families and relations together."
Yesterday, I was watching these 4 young girls around 16 – 17 years old play badminton. They were having fun, goofing around with all 4 of them equally involved in the game.
In some time two of their male friends joined them, and as part of round robin, the 2 boys replaced two of the girls. All good.
As the play continued, I started noticing a change in the way the game was being played. The shuttle was played most of the times between the two boys and there was a sense of competition and aggression brought in. The other 2 girls playing soon starting losing interest in the game as they hardly got any game time. Even if the shuttle came towards them, the boy in their team would move and play that shot. They soon moved to the sidelines as the boys continued to play.
