The rate these little children are learning about everything these days just gives me headaches. They learn both good and bad from everything they see around them. They learn from daddy, mummy, auntie, sister, brother, Nollywood, Hollywood, Bollywood, name them.
Just imagine…last month I went to visit a friend in a particular neighbourhood in Calabar. As I was busy chilling with my guy and discussing in his room, this little girl whom I later found out to be the daughter of his neighbour peered through the curtain and let herself in uninvited.
My friend scolded her for not greeting us, which she did immediately. Then we continued with our gist, taking little notice of her as she played with the DVD discs kept around the TV.
Later, she came to the bed where I was and continued playing there. I was gisting and laughing so hard that I didn’t notice she had shifted and was by this time playing very close to me. So I paused and asked her name, class and school. She responded as normal.
I continued gisting with my friend before I felt her hand touch my legs. As innocent as I thought her to be, I didn’t pay much attention to it until she came so close and stretched out her hand. I felt her grab my dick, HOLY MOSES!!
I jumped up and shouted. My friend pulled her up and gave her a very sharp konk (knock). “GOOD LORD am I dreaming or what?” I thought, looking at her as she was oblivious of the magnitude of what she has just done.
My friend pushed her out and went to make a report to her parents. Her mum came and apologized and it was settled. After she left, I learnt she lives in a one room apartment with her parents. Now only God knows what she might have been seeing or hearing at night while her thought she might be sleeping.
My friend and I talked more on this and agreed that it’s very wrong for couples living in a one room apartment to have sex at night with their children in the same room. You may think the kids are sleeping but never make such a mistake.
I also learnt that this was not her first time as she has previously done same to other guys on two occasions. I don’t want to go into how some movies and shows both local and foreign have destroyed innocent minds.
Let us protect these young ones from sexual corruption and abuse.
