Children not aware of indecent act consequences: NSAAC
August 14, 2018 1:01 am
Many children in schools who allegedly committed indecent act towards other students were not aware of the consequences until they were told that it’s a wrongful act.
Over two hundred and twenty cases of sexual harassment has been recorded in schools in the past two years.
Of these cases seventy were from primary schools and one hundred and fifty-four cases were from secondary schools.
National Substance Abuse Advisory Council chief executive, Manoa Senikarawa while raising his concerns on the alarming statistics says this can be avoided if children learn to respect.
“Children need to learn and respect others, respect their bodies, respect the differences, because without respect this kind of harassment and sex related activities will continue to grow.”
Senikarawa says we need to have an open discussion on such matters with our children.
