168. S.C.A.N.

Being a big fan of MJ, I never allowed anyone to talk ill of my all time favorite singer and dancer. I tried every possible way to imitate my legendish idol for all the wierd reasons. When My friends started cornering him for his allegations regarding Child abuse, I used to defend him with my own statements," MJ never molested any kid. He made love to them".Those days we just laughed it out.But the last two years made me realise that Child abuse is not a joke to laugh at.We never know who is abusing our child. Might be someone we know very well too. I would not bear it if some little kid in my family ends up as the victim. Gone were those days when we loved when someone pampered our child.Its an irky feeling that has creeped in me because I am not in a position to believe anyone around me.

What is child abuse?
1) Verbally abusing child
2) Teasing a child unnecessarily
3) Exposing a child to pornographic acts or literature.
4) Touching a child where he /she does not want to be touched.
5) Forcing a child to touch you.
6) Manipulating a child.
7) Using a child as a servant.
8)Hitting a child.


I would not appreciate anyone doing any such acts on my children.

I came across these two pictures and I just wanted to add them here.


Lets us Stop Child Abuse Now. I enjoyed my childhood days. I still remember those days.Playing with other little kids Fresh in my memories. Are the present day kids safe ?

It shouldn't hurt to be a child...


After all, Every Child is special

  4. Saw a similar post in another blog, good to see that awareness is on the upswing. But again thought must turn to action or it will remain just passing thoughts.

  11. good one Chriz...

    I feel good as a social Scientist that bloggers are sensitized towards these issues...

    Child abuse is one that is most disturbing and the worst of crimes.....

    people think that it is happening to some one..and it is the responsibility of the police, government or the concerned parents to take steps..

    Very often these services only get involved after the abuse has happened..

    but all adults have a part to play in preventing child abuse as Neighbours, friends, shopkeepers, teachers we have a role in keeping children in our community safe from harm...

    in the recent days we see such crimes raising..especially in metros like the place i live.. Delhi.. the worst of crimes happening today in India...

    Let us all make a pledge that

    ''I am concerned about the safety of every child''

    Good Post Chriz...

  17. Sadly it becomes very difficult for only the parents to prevent something like this. I think as a people we should be responsible for preventing this, whether it is our child or someone else's. Be on the lookout and anywhere you see something which is dowbtful, raise your voice. Better an innocent person be temporarily labelled a pedophile than a child be abused.

  18. Though we may brush it aside saying it doesnt happen around us,the truth is..it does!!
    and, we can never be more careful with our kids..
    My biggest dilemma is how to be protective of my kid without being smothering and over-bearing?! Of course, I had a happy childhood.. and I want my son to have the same.. but,times were different then.. sigh!!
