Guest Post: “I was once a girl child ” by Enene Ejembi

0 Shares

I was once a girl child. A nurtured, loved, protected, girl child. I wish that were the norm. I remember my teacher in primary school taking a little bit too much of a liking — an inappropriate liking, to me. I remember the day he told me I had gotten several answers wrong in our end of term examinations and wouldn’t ‘come 1st’. He said because he loved me, he wanted me to ‘come 1st’. He gave me a list of the right answers and told me to erase my wrong ones, insert the right ones and I’d be ahead. […]

Parental Watch on Prevention of Child Abuse, Molestation and Rape

0 Shares

A few weeks ago I was invited to speak at the Basilica of Grace, Gudu on the topic above. I am so proud of how the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) has decided to address this issue from the pulpit. No child (or even adult) should be subjected to any form of abuse, molestation or rape. Here are some excerpts from my talk. A person’s childhood is meant to be a beautiful part of life where an individual enjoys being nurtured and looked after by the adults in his or her life, however sadly many children are suffering due to […]
