Let's talk honestly about this issue and let's discuss how we can prevent it??

It's not easy to uproot the problem from the grass root level because the culprit is amongst our own family or neighboursand kids often get confused as to what is happening...they r distracted and confused with the rewards like toys, chocolates etc etc if they are below 5-6 years and start believing it is 'normal' and later are ashamed to admit...

i guess the role of a MOM is very very vital...she is the one with strong 'intuitions' and even if the kid is unable to express, her activities should raise suspicion....like withdrawn behaviour, nightmares, poor performance in studies, lack of interest in playful activities, blank eyes, emotionally vulnerable...Parents should never dismiss these signs as a part of 'growing up'....many of us think kids over react...but why?

Why should a normal kid over react? Why should we take her for granted and not believe what she is trying to say?

Why not encourage her to 'speak out'?

Do we want her to carry this burden to her adult life as well and live under this emotional trauma forever?

Let's wake up....Being a child is no easy job....let's make our kids' childhood as memorable and fresh as spring...
