Let's Talk About It.....

Hi everyone, woaw, It’s been a while oh, Happy new month everybody and happy birthday to people whose birthday’s ve past and the ones yet to come;don’t forget to send my cake and ice-cream as per your one and only.... Recently I was surfing thru the net for some info, was quite bored so I decided to check Linda Ikeji’s blog for some Naija gist and there the story was, I was perplexed. I thot it was a joke at first. An eleven year old girl gave birth to a baby girl, I know i’m a freak when it comes to kids and all and that girl and the baby were very cuteeeeeeeeeeeee, but for mercy’s sake what boy/man would do such a criminal thing to that girl. At eleven, I was still very much a child, running around under the rain with my friends and playing sand castle, hide and seek, bread and butter etc and to top it off self, Miss. Monthly Danger zone hadn’t started, I didn’t even know what it was. This girl is from Bulgaria and in this 21st century, their culture believes that the age of consent for a girl to get married is 14. Chineke God, A 14 year old girl? What does she know? What is she suppose to contribute to making the family a success apart from being a baby factory machine and always there to satisfy the husband’s desire. I know similar situations used to happen in the north, in Nigeria, not sure if it still does. Words from the young mother: “It feels strange to be a mum and ve a baby. I used to play with my toys but now she is my toy. She is so beautiful, I love her. Violeta is the child and I must grow up. I am not going back to school-I am a mother now”. (Visit Linda Ikeji’s blog for rest of the story) Gosh, I was in tears for this girl. How sad, how pathetic, how innocent. If only her parents, her teachers and the society had talked about it. Why is it so hard for parents to talk about SEX to their kids. The world is overly civilized now, from Musical videos to TV shows to Facebook etc...They are everywhere, the only way we can stop all of these is to talk about it. It’s not just the mother’s responsibility but both parents. Sit the kids down, teach them about their body has it develops, let them know the consequences of playing around. Please pass the message on, let’s stop child pregnancy abi how I go put the grammar self. Ve a great weekend everyone. XoXo.....

Long time, hope you've been good. I agree with you that some parents are lax when it comes to sex education. That girls chances in life are now limited due to this.
