The reality of the times we are in presents us daily with very distressing news and challenging issues. We are confronted with such realities in our newspaper every day. Rape, incest etc. Toddlers being defiled, teenage girls being threatened and raped by close family members.
It was quite worrisome when someone told me ” do you know how many women keep quiet despite the fact that their husbands are molesting their daughters”? Stories about neighbors, uncles, drivers etc abound.
As Education professionals,.WHAT STEPS SHOULD A TEACHER TAKE WHEN CONFRONTED WITH SUCH A CASE.? What if it is the father of the girl? Is there a support system to handle such? Should it be brought to the attention of government, police etc.. What should a teacher do if he/she gets to know about this.
