Actress, Tonto Dikeh has been speaking on care of children who are presently on long vacation.
The mother of one took to her Instagram page to offer how to ensure proper care of these children and make the most of holiday.
She noted the rising cases of child molestation, sexual abuse, rape, and child predators in our communities and encouraged parents to be mindful of those they allow access to their children, while also suggesting the various programmes parents can engage their children in.
She wrote: “PARENTS… Now that the holidays are here take note of the following … are everywhere seeking whom to devour. You really don’t want to see this happen to your angels (boys or girls). Be extra careful. Know where your children or Nannies/wards are per time…
“Leave them (Your kids) with very responsible and reasonable not just respectable adult jerks… Please avoid leaving children alone, with strangers and Sometimes even with some type of friends and family. Apply safety measures in and around the house. Secure your home. Personally, I went all out with CCTV camera, which allows me to watch my home thru my phone from any part of the word…Be vigilant. Check why your kids are in love with an adult and check why some adults repel and scare them.
“Don’t be caught up in this wayward society, Pay extra attention to your kids this holiday.
“The church isn’t a safe place, Watch your kids everywhere… Don’t feel too comfortable in a religious gathering, Remember The devil loves Good places too…
“Holidaymakers…Don’t send your kids off to your grannies without trusted helps around. Grannies are weak, vulnerable and not so disciplined anymore. Don’t burden them with children stress. Don’t accommodate other kids you can’t care for in the name of holiday.. Watch your teenagers. Get closer to your children and Nannies/wards this holiday. Keep close, embrace your children, pray and play together. They can watch television but be mindful of what goes into their mind. Most of the time, a lot of accidents could have been avoided. Take them to visit orphanages so they appreciate life more. What more can I say. Proverbs 22:6.”
