Here is a list of things you need to teach your Child(ren) at early age.

1: Warn your Girl Child Never to sit on anyone’s laps no matter the situation including uncles.

2: Avoid Getting Dressed in front of your child once he/she is 2 years old. Learn to excuse them or yourself.

3. Never allow any adult refer to your child as ‘my wife’ or ‘my husband’

4. Whenever your child goes out to play with friends make sure you look for a way to find out what kind of play they do, because young people now sexually abuse themselves.

5. Never force your child to visit any adult he or she is not comfortable with and also be observant if your child becomes too fond of a particular adult.

6. Once a very lively child suddenly becomes withdrawn you may need to patiently ask lots of questions from your child.

7. Carefully educate your grown ups about the right values of sex . If you don’t, the society will teach them the wrong values.

8: It is always advisable you go through any new Material like cartoons you just bought for them before they start seeing it themselves.

9. Ensure you activate parental controls on your cable networks and advice your friends especially those your child(ren) visit(s) often.

10. Teach your 3 year olds how to wash their private parts properly and warn them never to allow anyone touch those areas and that includes you (remember, charity begins from home and with you).

11: Blacklist some materials/associates you think could threaten the sanity of your child (this includes music, movies and even friends and families).

12. Let your child(ren) understand the value of standing out of the crowd.

13: Once your child complains about a particular person, don’t keep quiet about it.

Take up the case and show them you can defend them.

One more point that we don’t think of much is too much reliance on domestic help with kids. We must not let kids be alone with male servants, chauffeurs, gatekeepers, etc.

Kids, irrespective of their gender, should be supervised at all times by a parent even when there is a nanny or an aaya watching them. Even adolescent cousins can be curious and emotionally harm younger cousins with inappropriate touch/actions.

Awareness is important!! Most of our moms are unaware of the harm that can befall their kids due to our trust in the people around us. Too much trust can also be a bad thing.

THE SAME APPLIES FOR MALE CHILD TOO. 
Remember, we are either parents or parents-to-be. and remember “THE PAIN LASTS A LIFETIME”

If possible do forward this to all friends who have children or tag your friends / family in the comments.
