Normalise washing your infant's private parts after school— Tonto Dikeh


Nollywood actress and mother of one, Tonto Dikeh has dished out what she believes to be important parental advice; and it is that parents should normalise washing their kid’s private parts when they return from school.


The actress while taking to her verified Instagram account made the statement based on the high rate of abuse on school children by their peers and sometimes caregivers in the country.


She said, “This may sound vulgar but dear parents if you have an infant child in any school in Nigeria, please normalise washing kids’ private parts every time they come back home every day… Just do this, raped children get threatened with death and more.”


The screen diva who is known to be an advocate for the rights of women and children further stated that if a child is scared to talk about a traumatic experience, emphasised that a parent can know the truth by washing the kid’s private part.


Dikeh said, “He or she may be too scared and not speak up, but when you regularly do this, you will/may find your truth. Some of these are employing rapists, cultists, sex offenders and paedophile caregivers and teachers.”


She further seized the opportunity to advise parents to teach their offspring about rape and build a relationship with their children.


“I am so sick and tired of parents leaving in guilt only because they feel they used their hard-earned money to destroy their child/children simply because they want to give their wards quality education.


“Please parents teach your children about rape(their body their own, no one has the right to touch them) most especially build a living relationship with your kids, give them room to be able to talk to you about every and anything no matter how young they are,” she said.
