Today's the start of a new working day, and as usual i went to my favourite coffee shop alas China man Starbucks, my strongly brewed coffee black or passionately we call it "Kopi O" and my usual dose of news that the boss allows me to read for free, and as i was leafing through the pages of the Chinese daily, i was utterly disgusted when came to read about a news relating to a alleged sexual abuse inflicted upon a one year old girl.
It was reported that when the parents took the girl back from the babysitter's home, they saw some bruises around the girl's private part, and they took the girl for a medical check-up. After some examination, they doctor reported that indeed the little girl's private part has been penetrated with some kind of hard objects for a numerous times, thus a police was made.
There is always a possibility to a certain degree that our children would always be exposed to danger when we entrust them to someone besides the parents themselves. We just cant be too sure from the faces of our child's care taker and convince ourselves that they are good or otheriwise.
It had happened to me before, even thought it was not of sexual abuse, but the way or ways how my child was treated when he was being put up in the baby sister's house was enough to drive me crazy. Despite the fact that my child then was already 3 years old, but everytime when he was there, he was confined to a small baby cot, for the whole day except time for nap..
My child was litterally incarcerated and his movement was controlled, and when i saw it with my own eyes, i took him back straight away without giving any reasons for my abrupt decision. Nobody should do that to my children.
Children need our protection and we cant be too frivolous to think that it is always when our children are ok when they are entrusted to someone we think are ok. We must be diligent to check every single part of their body to make sure when they come back everyday from the care takers' place, they are 100% ok.
P/S : She might have an angelic face, but we cant be too sure if the devil is at work in her
