Nigerian lawyer appeals to parents to build good relationship with their kids
A Nigerian lawyer, Temitope Odeyinka is encouraging parents to build a good relationship with their children so that they can easily talk to them.
According to Odeyinka, her mother organised a seminar for young girls where they talked about rape and the girls’ responses revealed that they had nobody to talk to.
Odeyinka noted that the girls were below the age of 10.
Parents please speak to your children let them know they can always tell you anything. My mom organized a seminar for the young girls in her school and had someone talk to them about rape and sexual abuse, when these girls started responding, she was shocked and sad
Some of them have been sexually harassed/abused at home by family members or church members, these are girls that are below the age of 10, only one of them told her mom when it happened, the others kept it to themselves.
The saddest was a child whose mom took a bike, made her seat in front of the bike man while her mom was behind and she described that the bike man fingered her all through the journey but she never told her mom. Please parents, let’s your kids know that they should tell you everything that goes on with them, very important
