The news of another brutal rape in the financial capital shook me to the core. I questioned deep down our own so-called behavior that is sprouting from our old patterns of thinking. Is it still making our girls look at themselves as the weaker sex? Are we doing something wrong as a parent? Do we shun some old patterns and develop a new sense of positive parenting? Do we need more acceptance and less body shaming in parenting? Go through this verse as a parent and ask yourself what role you can play in becoming a positive parent.

Till the time, a man has the audacity, to brutalize a child or a woman; I, as a mother, have failed... Till the time, a young girl needs a brother, to accompany her after sunset; I, as a mother, have failed… Every time a child, is impressed by his classmate, just because she is pretty. I, as a mother, have failed... Every time I advise, my daughter to choose a SAFE profession, and close avenues for her out of my fear. I, as a mother, have failed... Every time I hear the chilling news of a rape, and shy away from making my adolescent child, aware of the agony she would have faced. I have failed as a mother... The society is made of you and me. Until we ensure to teach our sons to respect each woman, and our daughters to be proud of who they are; our job is incomplete. Till the time the fallacy, of improving the safety of woman, is shattered time and again. We probably fail as mothers.
