How can we protect our children from sexual grooming?
Sexual grooming in kids is on the rise and ALL parents should be vigilant and recognise the signs early to protect our children.
Have you heard of sexual grooming in kids? Sexual predators more often than not may try to “groom” their victims, especially if they are children. This leads to way to sexual abuse, such as what happened to a three-year-old toddler recently. It’s important for parents to understand about sexual grooming in kids so you can spot the signs and protect your child.
A three-year-old girl was sexually assaulted by her mother’s friend at Sibu, Malaysia on April 8 2019, according to The Star.
The 21-year-old single mother allegedly brought her young daughter to meet a former classmate in Permai Jaya.
“At about 9.30pm she went out to buy food, leaving her daughter with her friend in her house. Half an hour later, her friend called to tell her that her daughter was crying,” said Sibu OCPD Asst Comm Stanley Jonathan Ringgit.
When she arrived at her friend’s house, the mother was told that her friend’s husband had been watching porn on his handphone with her daughter.
She immediately took the three-year-old home, and when she was giving the girl a bath, she noticed red marks and blood on her private parts.
“The child told her that her friend’s husband had inserted his finger into her private parts,” said ACP Stanley.
The man was arrested; pornographic material was found on his phone.
