Victorine Mbong Shu, mother of Gauteng based Child Protection Activist, 10-year-old Stacey Fru and Involved Parenting Conversationalist speaks says the presence of parents, caregivers and guardians can help reduce the vulnerability of children, but particularly of the girl child.
According to Victorine who is an award-winning author of books on parenting, “a child who has constant love feels more protected, but a child who grows up mimicking how to love, will learn to love, protect and not hurt others.” Talking on ‘NO TO HORROR KILLINGS OF OUR CHILDREN AND WOMEN,’ she said that the increase absence of parents in children’s lives leaves them wanting and lacking at the same time.
Victorine calls on women to stop lying to themselves that if they pray without changing their ways, God will listen to them. “Parents must go back and parent like their ancestors did. The sad thing is that even though more women pray today than they did in the past, they pray for themselves and not for their spouses and their children like did our mothers and grandmothers.” She says. “But sadly, our grandmothers could pray for their spouses and children because they stayed home to do so while the men went out to hunt.”
Through a question that is in her book titled; ‘Stop Complaining! and Bring Back Involved Parenting’, Victorine shames the men; “Now that women go out with you to hunt, what is your role in your families? Let me tell you. If your do not protect your women and girl children, you are letting South Africa down. You are giving away South Africa, a land of Possibilities. You are letting foreigners to take both your women and your children.” The rather bitter Victorine said. According to her, children are left to look after themselves. They have no role models because both their fathers and their mothers are greedily scrambling for material gains. Is this what the South Africa of the 1994 bargained for?
