Child Sexual Abuse; Bolaji Gbadamosi, A Guest On Family Funtime Show Helps Unravel It

In line with April being Child Abuse Awareness month, just like I promised, every edition of the show this month we will feature a Child Abuse Advocate who will join us on the show to educate us more.

We had the pleasure of having Bolaji Gbadamosi popularly known as Msz Beejay, the founder of Expression 'U' Initiative and Thoughts-in-motion Africa which serve as platforms where she helps sensitize and empower children about their sexuality. 

She also has a studio and family center that provides therapeutic healing for children that have been abused using motion movement including dance and music to help them heal.

Mz Beejay was able to give us highlights on how to help children who have been abused by offering them therapy. She explained how emotional abuse and neglect of children can also have a huge impact in affecting their lives thereby leading to broken adults.

A major point she left us with is the fact that as parents you need to be very observant about your child because there are always signs. She also emphasized the need to be careful with words you use with your child and also about your child.

The issue of neglect as a major form of Child Abuse was also raised and she mentioned how not spending quality time with your child can lead to emotional problems for them and make them more vulnerable to predators who show them attention.

This is a clarion call for us to  pick up the slack wherever we might be wanting as parents and to continue to be amazing conditioning systems for our children.

Be sure to tune in to Kissfm Lagos 98.9 every Saturday from 11am to 12 Noon for a fresh edition of Family Funtime With Aunty Bimbo, the show that empowers and transforms families through fun and learning.
