Child sex abuse prevention in elementary schools can be effectively ensured through sex education, wherein, the children in pre-adolescent stage can be taught about children's right to control their bodies and about communication and self-protection

After the recent incidents of sexual assaults on minor students in schools at Marcaim and Fatorpa, besides few in other areas in the last few weeks of time period, there is a growing concern about the safety of children.

In this context, it is important to highlight the need for sexual orientation of our children through sex education. But sex word is a huge taboo in our country, although we are the most populated country in the world. We have narrowed down the concept of sex in a way that all a person thinks after hearing about it is nothing but engaging in physical sexual activities.

But it is not always about getting physical. What’s necessary is educating people about it. Sex Education or sexual education is all about educating people about sex, its related problems, and how to get over them. 

Please help put parents in charge of their child’s education by forwarding this article to other parents, family, friends and voters.
