    It’s so hard for children to disclose. I have been counselling children for 22 years . It’s about time India awakens to this huge problem .

    Never ever leave your child with a relative in your absence EVER. I got abused by my uncles son at age 3 I remember clearly even now when I am 52. Now he is a holy man with a beard and his wife and daughters are in hijab and niqab. I leave my justice to Allah. I hope to see justice served in my life time. Ameen sumameen

    Well done for being so brave,and well done to your family for their support. ( I hope that doesn’t come across as condescending, I truly admire you, I am a nurse and have come across adults who have such dark times, dealing with these issues) So wishing you well x

    I always told my children if anyone tries to touch you inappropriately tell me straight away! but we trust our family members more than strangers and this kind of abuse is not in your mind unless it happened to you as a child, My family never spoke about sexual abuse that happened to all my siblings it’s just kept in our minds which make us suffer as adults and affects your relationship with your partner. Don’t suffer in silence speak to someone.

    Shame on parents who never develop enough bonds with their child that the child could speak up.

    Indian parents talk to their children but they don’t listen to them. Also this respect for the elders is so entrenched in Indian culture that we are not allowed to question them or challenged them even they do wrong. Family and home can be the most dangerous place for women and children.
