The reflection of reach out plan
Reaching out to teenagers was exciting and highly challenging too. Talk to children who really don’t know what exactly what is child sexual abuse and feel very a shame to talk about this. I have talked to 5 children- 2 are 15-year-old, 2 are 12-year-old and 1 is 10-year-old. To talk to children in a very creative manner so that they understand things easily and take everything on a serious note. It’s not possible to conduct webinars at zoom or else because connectivity issues but what’s video call was sufficient. While telling them about sexual there were few challenges and following track on which discussing more on safety.
Who is the most trustworthy person?
What is actually a good touch and a bad touch.
Teach them to connect people and aware of them.
Awareness about online predators.
Material to used—
Internet Safety Guidelines By Age by Prashant Tariyal
CSA Learnings by Vaishnavi Arya
Presentation by Bandana Saikia
The few challenges were-
Using words like ‘Sexual’ and ‘harassment’ accurately- this word is usually considered very sensitive.
Teaching them the consequences of child sexual abuse.
Telling them about precaution and safety measures to be taken in public places.
Convincing them that it’s completely okay to talk to your parents about these topics.
Teaching proper use of social media.
Reflection of children-
Facing difficulties in understanding terms.
Have lots of hesitation.
One’s they have understood many things then they have creative ideas.
Older children have a very much clear understanding.
Some of them were very positive at the end of the session.
Their perspective about women has also changed positively.
Get know about online predators and how to safely use online platforms.
A few of them have become more curious to learn more things about this topic.
Overall the reaction was positive enough to get aware of CSA and how to safely use that online platform.
