Implementation of Abuse Education in Schools

Child abuse includes acts of physical, sexual and emotional abuse. It is estimated that about half of all children who are abused are of school age. Globally, it is estimated that up to 1 billion children aged 2–17 years have experienced physical, sexual, or emotional violence or neglect in the past year (As of 8 June 2020). The consequences of abuse can be profound for its victims, including physical and/or emotional injury, difficulty in building healthy relationships, and increased likelihood of engaging in child abuse as an adult. Understanding the approach to take in domestic violence education is a matter of understanding the difference between prevention and intervention. The key difference in prevention happens before exposure to domestic violence, while intervention seeks to address existing cases of domestic violence in the students' relationships either at school or at home. Teachers and other school staff bear a special responsibility in helping to identify child abuse. Because they spend much time with students, they are often in a position to observe physical or behavioral changes suggesting a possible problem. As a result, they play a key role in detecting child abuse and should be trained to do the same. Lack of adequate training hinders teachers' ability to detect all types of abuse, but it may especially impair their ability to recognize sexual abuse since most victims manifest no obvious external signs. Abuse is a reality that can and should be talked about with children. Doing so in classrooms communicates that this is not something that happens to some imagined community different from our own. Craving power and acting cruelly to hold on to it is something we are all capable of. To name it in a classroom is to bring it into the light, where children and adults can examine it together in a supportive climate. Therefore, I sincerely request you to sign this petition to have a chance to implement the change we all want to see, which is the implementation of Abuse related education in all Indian schools along with necessary training of teachers. If you’d like to further read about Abuse Education in Schools, you can read this document that I prepared, it can serve as a great place to start and also has activities that can be used in case you’d like to implement this education in your environment.

I am interacting in a very small way but really amazed by her work. she is famous by name"Mai".I am sure you must be knowing her as she has won a lot of National & International awards.
