October 5th, 2018 – A tête-à-tête with Pranaadhika Sinha Devburman : How to keep our kids safe

You can be in denial or you can be aware. What’s your choice?

Myth #1: Child sexual abuse occurs only among strangers. If children stay away from strangers, they will not be sexually abused.

Myth #2: All sexual abuse victims are female.

Myth #3: It’s often the child’s fault for encouraging sexual activity

Myth #4: Children who get sexually abused share their ordeal with someone

Myth #5: If a child says that he/she has been sexually abused but later says that nothing really happened, it means that the child was lying

Child sexual abuse is a grim reality of the society. Just because it is not seen, it doesn’t mean that it never happens.
