3The law providing protection to children from sexual offences should be made part of the school curriculum and children must be educated about its provisions, Women and Child Development Minister Krishna Tirath said Tuesday.

The Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, 2012, describes sexual offence in a gender neutral manner and provides for friendly and sensitive treatment of children who face sexual abuse, Tirath said at the first regional conference on POCSO Act held here.

She said all measures like in-camera proceedings, interpreter and proper medical facilities must be provided to children who have faced sexual abuse.
“Providing safe environment to the children is the responsibility of all citizens of the country,” she added.
Nita Chowdhury, secretary, ministry of women and child development, said the POCSO Act focuses on protecting children and provides for strict measures in this regard.

Women and Child Development Minister Krishna Tirath’s idea of “introducing sexual offences should be made part of the school curriculum and children must be educated about its provisions” is GOOD.
At the same time children should also be taught about STD ( sexually transmitted Diseases). When they know the health hazard children will be careful and afraid of doing free sex.
