beckyaseere You are right most girls suffer quietly.,..that’s the worst experience in a young girls life

wahumaina 🖤🖤 Thanks for sharing. Sending you lots of love & light.

kambuamuziki Sending love mama💛💛💛 thank you for sharing this.

wanjeri_waim Yes 90% of this cases are relatives then friends people very close to the family and its so sad…both to girls and boys and its so common only we don’t talk about it. Also parents should be very close to their kids so they can speak up. I found a book for small girls I have been sharing with my friends an E-book about owning your body I should upload it for people to share.

thairu.esther Thank you for sharing your story,it takes a lot of energy and bravery to tell such a deep story, you such an amazing and strong lady and I admire your strength ❤️

ladybird_shop.ke Woiye kamami, almost every lady I know has a sexual harassment/ assault story involving a male relative(inclusive of biological fathers)..alafu most mothers will either not believe the child or just hush up the whole ordeal😔..homes aren’t so safe😔…

esther_77w Pole sana …you are absolutely right..we have to try so hard to protect our girls🙏

newpuppytex Sexual violation and especially during childhood messes you really up. It is a Trauma that is with you everyday. It has messed up my life for real. Please parent, take very good care of your children, listen to them and if you ever notice mtoto wako hataki umhug ama umuguze ama anakua uncomfortable, know that is one of the early signs of sexual abuse. Also,teaching kids about body boundaries can help alot. Just tell your kids that their body belongs to them alone and nobody should touch or play with their privates. ‘Dont touch my privates’

amina_jibril007 Woiyee …wish to share mine… my uncle.. I was just 10 years. N he did it repeatedly

newpuppytex I too was Sexually Molested by my cousin. I was around 7yrs by then and he must have been 14yrs or so. During my whole childhood It didn’t bother me but come age 33 I started having flashbacks
