Child protection

Suresh Chand,Nadi | Thursday, December 14, 2017

A LOT is being said about child safety, but are people listening in our country?

I realise the message is not getting through whenever I see children coming to the shop alone.

Mind you sometimes these children walk quite a distance to get things for their parents and guardians at home.

I don't know why it is happening like this still.

Without adult supervision, which we emphasise to parents every day through all medium, we all know children are never safe.

Dangers lurk, but we want to send our children out alone in all corners. I think we get serious about dealing with parental negligence. Sending a weak child to shop all by himself, is this child protection?

I leave it to you to answer.
