As parents, we enlighten our daughters about safe touch and unsafe touch to keep themselves safe and alert at the fully-fledged stage. In current statistics, most of the rape cases are happening with the small girl by their own family members. This is a story about a girl who became the youngest mother in history and gave birth at the age of 5 years, seven months, and twenty-one days. She is popularly named Lina Medina from Pisco, Peru who was the ninth child of her parents.

One fine day, she felt abdominal pain and her abdomen have increased in size due to which she was immediately taken to the doctor for a check-up. While checking up, the doctor thought that its a tumor but after examination, all came to know that she is pregnant with seven months baby.

When her father came to know about this, he yelled out that he will kill the person who have done this activity with his daughter. Besides that, the mother calmed down her little baby Lina who was crying in pain, asked her that to speak the truth about how did it happen to her without any hesitation.

She pampered her baby and told her that whatever the situation may be she will not let anyone hurt her or her baby. Poor Lina while blubbering shouted in pain that her dad has done this. Her mother was shocked and when she realized that this was the reason why her dad was taking her out always alone, she broke down with teary eyes.

From that day, her father faded away. Her mother took proper care of Lina and her baby. After six weeks of diagnosis, she gave birth to a healthy baby boy by cesarean section. Later at the age of 10, she came to know that she is the mother of the boy who was raised as a little boy along with her. As per the source, the biological father was never identified.

About one in every 10,000 cases develop such condition known as precocious puberty and Medina was one of those kids. Lina’s father was arrested on the suspicion case of child sex abuse and got released later due to lack of evidence. There are several other cases where girls of small aged are getting pregnant. Most of the cases are closed or unrevealed due to fear of loss of dignity and respect in front of society. We are ashamed to highlight that such types of cases are still happening in our beautiful country, Inda where our kids are not safe whether it's boys or girls.

Such types of cases can only get resolved when we will change our thinking and proper sex education should be given to everyone. As a kid, we trust our parents first and have the belief that whatever the formidable hurdles, we can face the same with happy faces as our parents are beside us. There was another case where 6 years old Yelizaveta Pantueva gave birth to a healthy baby girl a few days before her 6th birthday. Unfortunately, the baby lost her breath during labor due to an early placental tear. Her parents were not ready for a cesarean section as they thought it would be dangerous at that time.

She was raped and impregnated by her 70-years old maternal grandfather when she was 5 years old. According to the latest report, more than 100 kids are sexually abused every day. We are still unaware of the fact that why such cases are rising after copious amounts of awareness campaigns, ads that were organized to nullify the cases. When we as parents restlessly cast about for such cases on the internet, we get abundant reasons for such happenings by different people.

Why don't we find the actual reason behind such activities instead of wasting time searching from internet sources? As we all know that most child sexual abuse starts from own family members only. Instead of blaming nonfamily members, we need to keep an eye on the people with whom our kids spend a lot of time. It doesn’t mean that when the child grows up is most prone to such cases. Child of any age gets targeted by such people with bad intentions.

We cannot trust fathers, grandfathers, brothers, and uncles. Such peoples are too close with small kids at a young age. Now, the question comes to our mind that how such cases can be reduced.

First of all, when such acts happen, we should not feel ashamed for lodging an FIR against the perpetrator. As soon as the FIR is lodged, the police officers should put all the forces to close such cases and give punishment which should be dreadful that nobody will dare to do such activities. In child sexual abuse, girls are not only the ones who were ensnared but little boys too were ensnared as well. We should not be completely contingent on laws. Every parent needs to keep a strict eye on each and every activity of their apple pie. When we working parents go out for our work, we have to be very careful at that time because babies use to stay alone with a babysitter or their grandparents or any of their family members or neighbors. 

If you are doubtful about any such activities of your baby, be aware of your baby with some signs about the safe touch and unsafe touch.Besides working, keep good bonding with your baby so that they can trust you and express their uncomfortable moments with you.Because babies below 7 years old are too small to express their uncoziness.Such babies should be kept in taking care of the person to whom they trust the most when the parents go out for work. If the baby were found with any unusual marks on any parts of their body, immediately it should be exposed first within the family members. Every time social media gets flooded with such incidents every day.

It is not the right time to forbid the independence of your newbies, instead, they should be made aware of such activities and if anything wrong happens with them, they should express it boldly without any fear.

This stage is very crucial for every parent and babies need to be taken care very properly as they are very delicate physically and mentally as well. It sounds weird that our own family members are also considered monsters but we have to accept the fact that in reality, such heart-wrenching incidents are happening around us and slow claps for those persons who think that small dresses are the cause of rape, child sexual abuse, and sexual molestations. Most of the babies get targeted as per sources because of lack of proper sex education, lack of humanity, lack of emotions, lack of literacy, and narrow-mindedness.
