Pandemic paradox: When home is not safe for children


Join us on our Malay and English WhatsApp channels, Telegram and Instagram for updates.

We are being told to stay home to stop the spread of the coronavirus, but home isn’t always a safe space, especially for children living in situations of violence, where physical, psychological and sexual abuse occurs. BFM speaks to Mangleswary Subramaniam, service manager at the Women’s Centre for Change, about the impact of Covid-19 on children’s vulnerability to sexual violence and exploitation and how we all need to play a part to end this cycle of abuse.

This is plain stupidity talking. 99.9% of homes are safe for children. What other alternatives are there for children other than staying home? You are not helping. You are not even talking sense. There always are stupid people like you who will create further chaos and problems during trouble times. Stupidity beyond words.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
