According to National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System in United States, it was concluded that in every 1000 children, 12 are sexually abused. More than 87,000 out of 1 million children become sexually abused. This has led to a great concern on the various preventive measures that can help to curb this growing problem in our society. It is upon the adults and the community responsibility to prevent such risks from occurring time and again.
