About 19% of World’s children live in India and they constitute 42% of Indian population. Recent study by Ministry of Women and Child Development in 13 states of India reveals that 53.22% of Indian children experience one or more form of sexual abuse. 50% sexual offenders were known persons and were in positions of trust (family member, close relative, friend or neighbour) (Loveleen et al 2007). Parents and teachers are responsible for protecting children from sexual abuse. But, due to the growing financial need, both the parents are working, irrespective of their standard of living. It results in lack of personal time for their kids to educate/ create awareness on various social and personal issues. They don’t even find time to meet together at home or in a common place due to their work pressure. Though they teach safety during travel, safeguarding their belongings, they seldom discuss about safeguarding their bodies. One reason could be that they themselves may not know how to tell and what to tell about child sexual abuse
