Comments : Child abuse is something that can happen in a rich/poor persons home. Parents should make sure that they create an environment by educating the children on how to identify when a stranger or a family member gets too close to their private parts. In most of the cases a known person in the community/relative/neighbor is involved in such crimes.

In order to avoid such incidents educating and creating a communicative atmosphere within the parents and children can change things. Step up and take an initiative.

We have also included an education video on child abuse  which may help you give an idea on how to go about it.
