In today’s times, we hear a lot about child abuse and molestation. It’s high time, we should start teaching young children about “Good Touch and Bad Touch” to help prevent more damage. Most of the time, targets are very young children, below 6-7 years of age. They are too young to understand the difference between right and wrong.
Every now and then we hear cases of young children, both boys and girls, being sexually abused by an adult around them. The problem is, that they do not even know what is happening. It is still a sensitive topic for us so we hesitate to take up and speak on sensitive topics. But RBK Global School took an initiative to sensitize our learners children from a very young age and make our children aware about good touch and bad touch as early as possible so that they are equipped to understand this sensitive issue.
But our job was not done yet. Alerting children was not enough, we have to teach them what to do if ever they face such situations.
Sensitizing children about various issues and about good touch bad touch, makes them emotionally strong and helps them to grow normally. It helps them handle “not so positive events” in life in a better way so that it does not impact their growth and personality.
Come, let’s join hands to make this world a better and safer place for our young generation. Although many children of this age tend to tell stories, it is vital that as a parent, as a teacher that we support them, and believe them. They need to know that they can trust us, and that we will protect them.
