'Sensitise parents on child abuse'

Bangalore: Mar 4, 2013 DH News Service

Expressing concern over increasing cases of child abuse, Sister Dueline Crasta, Chief Protection Coordinator, Unicef, urged parents to create a protective environment for children.

She said parents must be sensitised to the issue so that they can deal with it in a better way.

She was speaking on the sidelines of a walkathon organised by the EuroKids group of institutions, in association with the Department of Women and Child Development and Unicef, in the City on Sunday.

The event was organised to spread awareness on the issue of child abuse, neglect and violence inflicted on children.

“Parents are not aware of such abuses in many cases as most of them are perpetrated by those who are close to the family.

“Hence, it is extremely important to sensitise them first than anyone else,” said Crasta. Such an effort would lead to a change in attitude and perceptions, she said.

The walkathon commenced from the various branches of EuroKids at Malleswaram, Whitefield, Indiranagar, Abbigere, Goraguntepalya, Domlur bridge, Marathalli, Kasturi Nagar, BEML Layout and other areas.

“Being in the education field and dealing with children every day, we acutely feel there is an absolute need for an initiative by the school to protect every child from abuse and neglect,” said Geeta Subramaniam, Principal, EuroSchool West campus, Hesaraghatta.
