Children at risk

While the discourse about child safety in recent times has focused on threats to educational institutes and rightly so, what is often passed over is the risk to children from the people around them at home, in their neighbourhoods, in the park, the people who come to deliver goods at home, etc.

Kidnapping, physical assault, bullying are some of the risks young children are exposed to on a daily basis and require ongoing education to help the children bring it to the notice of a responsible adult.

How do you assess the risk?

Foremost is for you to know what those risks are and the easiest way to do it is to ask yourself the following questions:
What actions, words or deeds of another person make me uncomfortable?
  • Foul Language
  • Inappropriate dress, gestures, diet (alcohol, ghutka, paan, chalia, etc)
  • Inappropriate physical interaction (unnecessary hugging, patting on the body, etc.)
  • Would you allow for a child in your care to be exposed to them on a regular basis?
  • If the answer is NO then you know what you need to watch out for
What happens when you are not there?
Have you laid down the law?
Clearly inform any adult who interacts regularly with a young child what is acceptable or not and the consequences of their actions, such as:
  • Dismissal from service
  • Blacklisting them and ensuring that no one else hires them
  • Reporting them to the authorities
Have you prepared your child to report any inappropriate behaviour to you or some other responsible adult? How to minimise the risk?
Your support staff (maid, chauffeur, home tutor, etc)
Where do you hire them from?
  • From an agency.
  • Personal reference.
Do you have their records?
  • Visited their home at least once to familiarise yourself (especially for a maid and driver).
  • Have seen their original ID documents.
What are the reasons for leaving the previous job or starting for the first time?
Often you’ll find out through a difficult experience that the person may have been dismissed or left the previous role because of theft claims.
Experience in tending to children?
Have a list of dos and don'ts that need to be clearly explained from day one:
  • Do not lock the bathroom door while bathing the child.
  • Children shouldn’t be left undressed for an extended period (even in hot weather, a sleeveless top must be a minimum).
  • Once a child is capable of walking and sitting on their own there’s no need to have them sit in the lap of the support staff for extended periods, even if it is while feeding the child. (Remember if a child gets used to sitting in everyone’s lap in your presence they’ll likely do the same in your absence and could be taken advantage of).


  • Hugging and kissing by the nanny is acceptable but within reasonable limits. Anyone else doing so should immediately ring alarm bells even if the gesture is not offensive. The child at a young age is unable to discern what’s right and wrong particularly when it’s a regular occurrence.
  • Correcting a child should never involve physical actions (spanking, using of objects to hit the child, etc).
  • Inappropriate television programmes, video clips on cell phones must all be curtailed.
  • Do not permit the support staff to take pictures of your child or any other member of the household. In today’s world of smartphones and rapid internet connections it calls for even more vigilance.
  • Children while commuting in vehicles must not be permitted to sit in the lap of those driving the vehicle. Aside from the safety risk, the child is given a conflicting message on the appropriateness of sitting in the lap of someone. Car seats are the solution.
  • Install a Nanny Cam: Easy to set up cameras are available in the market and are particularly an effective way of monitoring. These can be set up to allow remote monitoring as well.

Teaching the child

  • You know what’s wrong; your staff knows what’s wrong but don’t forget the child.
  • Learn to recognise the difference in your child’s mannerisms (particularly when hiring a new support staff member).
Identify who the child can reach out to in case you aren’t around and they feel violated in any way.
In school
Teacher, principal, head boy or girl
At home
  • A grandparent, a sibling who can immediately inform you, the nanny (in case someone from the family is not available)
  • Situations can vary but what is essential for the child is to understand that they must bring it the attention of someone.
  • Teach the child what is inappropriate with the aid of books, videos or just your own words and actions.
Being touched on their private parts is wrong on most occasions so give examples of both appropriate and inappropriate:
  • When bathing however, it is necessary
  • Doctors’ checkups aren’t bad either
  • A stranger in the park, someone at school though are wrong
Teach them to say no
Scream out and ask for help

Stranger danger

  • Never accept anything from a stranger (toys, eatables, money, etc.).
  • Never go to confined spaces with a stranger even if it comes with a promise to return their toy, ball, etc. that may have gone there.
  • Never leave with a stranger unless an adult, they trust, has asked them to do so.
  • Differentiate between a safe and unsafe stranger — policemen, teachers, security guards are considered safe but care and caution apply here as well.
How you choose to address these dangers with a young child is ultimately down to you. However, choosing not to do so is enabling a criminal to take advantage of them in your absence. There are plenty of resources online and a quick internet check will get you going. Do not hesitate to seek professional help, not just for the child but for yourself too, in the event of a trauma. Children heal faster but actions of adults in caring for them post-trauma will ultimately shape their future.

Urdu edition of Malala’s book 'will remove misconceptions'

An Urdu edition of Swat’s Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai’s book entitled May Hoon Malala was launched in Lahore recently but despite efforts so far neither the book nor a Pashto edition of it could be launched in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.



Prof Khadim Hussain, head of Bacha Khan Education Trust, who attended launch of the Urdu edition of I am Malala in Lahore by Mashal Publishers, regretted that there was no edition of the book in Pakistan in Malala’s mother tongue so that her people could know about her side of the story.
“The Urdu edition would somewhat help to remove misperceptions about what Malala stands for,” he said. He added that a Pashto edition of the book was published in Afghanistan. He feared that many Pakhtuns in Pakistan might not be able to get a copy of the book or properly comprehend the Pashto read and written in Afghanistan.
Prof Khadim said that Urdu edition of the book would be helpful in explaining who really Malala was to those who spread stories and conspiracies against her.
“Malala’s story and her struggle is for enlightenment and love for humanity. She initiated a movement to educate every child and spend on education than military or defence,” he added.
Prof Hussain believed that her thoughts could bring about a change in the world about spending funds on human development and education instead of wars. He said that Malala belonged to a province where during the last few decades war had destroyed the society’s ability to hold discourse and its ability of free thinking slowly so it needed to hear her side of the story.
“If you remember, in 2015 Area Study Centre and BKET wanted to collaborate the launch of Malala’s book but provincial government intervened and stopped us from holding the event due to security reasons,” said Prof Hussain when asked if he would be holding any activity to launch the book in Peshawar.
The launch of a book was banned in a university as the provincial government feared it would invite trouble and create security issue back in 2015.
“Since Urdu is a national language and many can read and write it so it would help people to read about Malala’s philosophy. Those, who are extremists and want to impose their own opinion, and those, who are unable to access information due to such elements, would get their answer if they are able to read this book,” said Prof Khadim.
He said that it would remove many misconceptions but only if people would read the book. “However, a Pashto edition of the book in Pakistan is definitely needed so that her people could read about Malala in their own mother tongue,” he added.
