Thanks for educating parents on this, when I was a teen, we were always scared to even speak about this out of fear. I'm glad the world is evolving, we just figured things out ourselves which was wrong. I guess this was due to our African way of parenting, but as a parent now, I'm taking a new approach on my parenting style thanks and this is informative.
So true… but they will never see my daughter ijn amen.
Schools should also normalize conducting background check on their employees. Godforbid I cannot bear having my child defiled! Godforbid!!!!
