Dear Parents ,
Read this very carefully , its a REAL STORY
One winter night , sitting in my clinic , I was writing prescription for a patient when a mother came to me .
She was extremely worried and restless. I asked her to sit down in front of me on a stool . She sat there with her son in her lap . Then i asked ” Why are you so worried ? ” She replied anxiously ” My son has refused to go to school . I have been trying for 1 week to send him but he cries like anything , he even says that he will jump from the roof top if i send him to school . ” I said ” That’s the only problem ? Any physical problems ? ” She was reluctant to tell me something , i could see the tension in her eyes .
I asked again ” Don’t worry , tell me please ” . She hesitated , after a pause of couple of seconds she turned her son’s back towards me , pulled down his pants and showed me his hip area.
What i saw there shook me . All his hip area especially the anal area was full of bruises and was infected . I asked the mother to show me his full body . The body of the boy was full of bruises and hand marks . I knew what i was dealing with and why the boy was not going to school . He was being sexually abused there . I gave some biscuits to the boy , tried to gain his trust and gently asked him ” What happened with you in school my child , tell me i can help you ? Did someone tried to touch you ? ” . The child had a mysterious kind of emptiness in his eyes. He wanted to speak , he wanted to tell me everything , he wanted me to help him . His innocent eyes were saying a lot but …..
I told his mother the truth . Instead of understanding the situation and to deal it with some sense and maturity she got extremely scared and she just ran away as if she had seen some ghost .
I kept calling her name , tried to stop her but she simply ignored me .
What happened with the child after that , I DONT KNOW .
But one thing i know ” Parents need to get educated about such stuff . Its your duty dear mothers and fathers to keep an eye on activities of your child and if something like this happens to them then instead of being scared and acting like immature people , face the situation . At this time , your child needs your maximum attention . Minds of children are too delicate , they must be dealt with very carefully . Parents must visit the schools of their children regularly . Keep an eye on their teachers , guards , everyone . Teach your children that they are the only ones who can touch their sexual body parts . Be clear that adults do not have sexual interactions with children and if any adult ever touches a child’s sexual body parts the parents needs to know . Model an environment of calmness , openness and safety and let your children ask questions . Tell your children that they can come to you about anything and you wont get angry with them . Your children will learn about their bodies , about sex and about tricky people eventually but it is up to you whether you let your child learn such things from you or from this cruel and hypocrite society .
CHOICE IS YOURS
