If you read news and are aware of international affairs, you'll be aware that something cruel had happened in India in December 2012 that shook the whole nation. For months, this was the headlines of all the newspapers, media channels and even a part of local plays, events and many other things to make girls aware. In fact, schools had several 'self-defense' programs for girls.
During this period, my 8-year-old daughter asked me several times about what all this is going on? In fact, whenever we advise her to be cautious (Indian newspapers, almost daily, have child molestation's news) with an unknown fellow, the first thing she asks is what they do to girls? The same thing she asked for that case of December 2012.
Being in catch-22, I manipulate my answer and tell her that bad people take girls and beat them but you and I know, that's not the answer.
Is there any way to express what exactly it has to do with girls to this little girl?
