Through this blog, I want to draw attention towards one of the issues that is being highlighted very frequently for the past few months on media i.e. Child Abuse. We tend to hear and see the news of child abuses, offer our condolences for a while and then switch channels. But, do we actually ever analyse ourselves? Do we ever try to find out the cause of such abuses? We tend to put all blame on the culprits, but we ourselves are making our children more vulnerable. Nowadays, both the parents are striving to earn money for a better quality education for their children, and thus, children spend less time with their parents and so, they feel neglected. I am not saying that the parents should not strive for bright future of their children; they must do so but they must also try to spend time with them, listen to what they have to say and provide them with the deserved attention. In some cases, kids actually meet their parents only at the dinner table and spend the entire day with the caretakers. It really hurts me when I observe such children. The lack of attention of the parents leads the children becoming victims of abuse. The second cause is that we don’t educate kids about the good and bad touch. If they try to tell, we keep them quiet and not talk about the issues since it is considered a taboo to talk about rape and abuse in our culture. Nothing should be more important to us than our kids. It’s our job to protect them, to make them aware and to listen to them. Don’t rely on caretakers because in most cases, these caretakers are involved in rape and kidnappings of children. If you, as a parent, have no time for your kids, then how can you expect someone else to provide them with the love and care they need? The third cause is parenting styles. Unfortunately, most of the parents have authoritarian style. Sometimes, kids don’t tell things to parents because they have this underline fear that they might get scolded. To avoid miscommunication, be friendly with your kids so that they could share everything with you. Whenever they come from the outside, always ask three questions to them on regular basis: Are they fine? Did they meet a stranger or did somebody call them and did they experience something unusual? Parents should remember that what they invest today will repay them in the future. So if you invest money, all you will have is cash, but if you invest care and love into your children, they will give you the same in return. Now the decision is entirely yours, whether you want money or the affections for your old age. These abuses not only mentally harm the child but also causes physical distress as well. They face numerous issues e.g. they experience trust issues, unstable relationships and other psychological problems. I have come to know about few cases where the individuals are abused or harassed by their caretakers or relative from their family. Some of them reported that they tried to talk to their parents but they didn’t pay attention, some individuals said that they are neglected. When parents don’t address these issues, traumatic memories are repressed by the child. Later on, this repression turns out in a form of different psychological issues. After reading this article, most of the people will tend to think that I have put everything on the parents but this is a bitter reality that we should accept. My aim behind this article was to create awareness among those parents who neglect their kids and then blame others for any uncertain incidents.
