how to explain "rape" to a 6 yr old
« on: April 09, 2013, 02:00:23 pm »

hi! im really concerned about this issue. we just heard a tragic news from our relatives in the province. my daughter's 3rd cousin was raped by their parents "ampon" who was 14yo and drunk.. my daughter was there when the news was told to us and she's been asking what rape is..she was close to her 3rd cousin who is by the way only 3yo..same age as her sibling... its a very delicate matter as it involves someone that we knew. its going to be a whole lot of counseling and  recovering for her cousin and she was also been beaten to head that caused nose bleed. help. thank you so much.

I read somewhere, either dito rin sa forum or sa SP mag. The mother explained, rape is when someone hurts someone else's private parts. Use this as an opportunity to teach children about keeping their private parts private. Like no one else should see or touch it because it's yours and no one else's. Not even close friends, relatives, family member, not even the doctor can see or touch it without mommy's presence, and to tell you if someone attempts to get near it.

A special microsite and a social media campaign outlines ways for children, parents and communities to take action such as getting involved, getting informed, organizing events and public discussion forums, supporting child victims of violence and working with global and local UNICEF partners.
