Here I am, still shaking at the news about the 7 year old girl in Chennai. I cannot sleep, I am scared and deeply worried about every kid out there, those innocent minds who have no clue about the cruel world around them. Changing the minds of such monsters in disguise is definitely going to take a while, so the only option we parents are left with is never to compromise on our precious one's safety.
Let's all please take a pledge not to force our kids to be nice to every person they meet, give them the freedom to wriggle away from people they are not comfortable with. Kids are humans too, so if they don't like somebody there has to be a reason for it. Encourage them to stand up for themselves, remember we are not rearing them for a certificate of good behavior.
