Speak Out

As parents and caregivers, let us empower our children to speak out on unacceptable behaviour. Abusers tend to be familiar faces to a child, making it difficult for them to speak out. It is hard to speak out against someone you know.

The African society tends to keep hushed tones on child abuse matters. We either push the child away as lying against an adult or completly coverup abuse. This not only empowers the abusers but also has a detrimental effect on the mental and emotional well-being of the child which carries into adulthood.

We instill values in our children through leading by example, encouraging them and equipping them with skills. Let us be the generation that turned on the switch to child abuse.
