Temitope Tomiwa Dada Foundation in Support of Canaanland Baptist Academy Maiden Inter-House Sport

The happiest people are not those getting more but those giving more.

The above quote is exactly what we do at *HOPE ALIVE FOUNDATION*. 

On the 20th of March, 2020. Canaanland Baptist Academy had their inter house sport at Liberty Stadium in Ibadan. 

The program was successful with the help of God,  the staffs, parents and the Hope Alive Foundation team. 

Hope Alive Foundation, gave their full support by joining hands with the sport master in monitoring the pupils.

We make sure the pupils were monitored and attended to in case of emergency by serving as their guards in order to avoid injury. Meanwhile,  those that were injured were given first aids by the medical teams. 

It was fun filled inter house sport as we worked together not only as a team as well as one big family. 

At the end of the program we received heart warming appreciations from the proprietress and the school staffs as a whole. 

Remember,  volunteers are not paid no because we are worthless but because we are priceless. 

We are proud to give back to humanity. 
We are proud to be a volunteer.

Child sexual abuse is also known as child sexual molestation. It is a secret crime involving a range of indecent sexual activities between an adultand a child.

According to the National Violence Against Children Survey, it established that *1 in 4 girls* and *1 in 10 boys* experienced sexual violence before the age of 18.

-Making a child watch pornography
-Exposing the genital to kids
-Indecent touching
-Fondling etc

Studies show that over *95%* of sexually abused children are abused by persons known or close to the child or the child's family.

They are right there in your house, co-tenants, family members,neighbours. Their friends in school, hostel, classmates,class/school teachers, madrasah teachers, cousins, uncles, nephew, niece, fathers, step fathers, grand fathers, imams, choir masters, pastors, confidants, security guard, maids, family /school drivers, After school/home lesson teachers, mummy's friend, daddy's friend, caregivers, strangers........ the list can go on.
Please, do not ask if any of the above is possible because,there is no case of any of the above that we have not seen.

Parental negligence, carelessness, non- challant attitude.
It is as bad as *No one can be trusted*
We have a child presently carrying a baby that belongs to her father*

Absentee parents.
Parents who do not observe.
When d kids are not informed.....
What u watch with your kids.

✓On your bed
✓Right under your nose, under your roof
✓In the school enviroment- class,toilet etc
✓ In their room (siblings)
✓Deserted/Abandoned places
✓ When you are distracted

Perpetrators look for opportunities.
*5mins is enough to cause a life long damage*

a. Emotional bait
b. Gift bait
c. Financial bait
d. Familiarity & Respect bait.

Child grooming
Befriending and establishing an emotional connection with a child, and sometimes the family, to lower the child's inhibitions with the objective of sexual abuse. -Wikipedia-
Gaining the trust of a minor with the intention of having sex relationship with them.

A. Always trying to be around your child or vice versa
B. Child feels uncomfortable when he/she sights d abuser or when d abuser is around.
C. Easily and conviniently accept to care for your child while you are away.
D. Can be hard on the child especially if the child is rejecting his *moves*
If any of the above is observed, plssss, shine your eyes. Or sometimes, your child might feel uncomfortable /rejecting to go to the person when you send him or her Or even go for holiday.

Sexual abuse happens among sibblings, set rules, seperate their rooms, seperate their beds.
We had a case of twins having sex with each other. When they were asked, they said: we see mum and dad do same.
Why should we be that careless?
Because of the carelessness of both parents,their innocent minds were polluted and their lives were destroyed.

•I will kill u
•You will die
•Your mummy will hate u
•Your mummy will beat you
•Your mummy will blame you.
•Your mummy and your daddy will die.
•He could cut d child, lick d blood and says ' *this is a blood convenant between us ,d day you tell is the day you die*

The *SRR*
-Teach ur child-
S - Shout/scream
R - Run 
R - Report

✓Difficulty in walking
✓Sudden drop in academic performance
✓Poor social interaction

✓Sexually Transmitted Diseases.
Their dressing is important, dress to cover them pls. Teach them privacy.They must knock and seek permission before they enter your room.
It is wrong to bath them together irrespective of sex.

*children never lie about abuse* If your child tells u someone is trying to mess with him or her.... Please believe the child and respond appropriately.

-The abused child could become a *serial* abuser
-Suicidal thoughts
-Lifelong psychological trauma
-Infected with STDs

More often than not,we pay more attention to the girls than the boys.
With my years of experience, boys are mostly victims- anal sex but because we *do not pay attention*.
For them, healing is a terrible process.

*WATCH OVER YOUR BOYS* Something might just be happening and u perceive not. Do not be a *hard* mum. Strike a balance between love and discipline.
Give your children Sex Education proportional to their age. A child of age 2 or even less is due for Sex Eduacation.
Tell them what nobody must do with their body.
Tell them to *speak out*.

In the house, everyone must respect one another's privacy.

5 tips for parents to build communication skills with children with autism spectrum disorder

Knowing the right strategies can help parents of children with autism spectrum disorder boost their children’s communication skills. College of Education & Human Development, Texas A&M University
We are researchers who coach parents to communicate with children with disabilities.

Here are five strategies families can use to help children with autism spectrum disorder build their communication skills, along with examples of how to use them.

Autism affects an estimated 1 in 59 children nationwide.

1. Motivate the child to communicate

Create opportunities for your child to practice communication skills. Show your child one of their favorite items and encourage your child to ask for it. Children are more likely to be engaged and communicate when activities are based on their interests. Compliment your child when they communicate. For instance, say “that’s a good question!” or “good job asking me for help!”

Delicia, whose 3-year-old child, Pacho, has minimal verbal skills, motivates her child to speak by placing a cookie in a jar. Pacho can see the cookie but he cannot get it by himself. He has to ask for it. After Delicia teaches him how to ask for it, she will give him the cookie and praise him by saying “Good job telling me.”

2. Model communication skills

Model communication skills by speaking, using gestures and facial expressions. Your child will imitate them. While modeling, sit near your child and respond to the child’s imitation with praise for using the new skill.

Pacho cannot open the cookie jar, so he hands the jar to Delicia. Delicia models by saying “Cookies, please” or “Open, please.”

For children with autism spectrum disorder with nonverbal communication or who have complex communication needs, consider using a tool, called an augmentative and alternative communication device, to supplement their speech.

This kind of communication can be low-tech, such as exchanging pictures to communicate. Or, it can be as high-tech as a communication app on a tablet.

Archie, a 10-year-old with autism spectrum disorder who cannot yet speak, screams when asked to eat vegetables. His father places the vegetables on his dish and his mother models pressing an icon on an app to say, “No, thank you,” and waiting for his response. The mother also says “No, thank you” to give him a verbal model and waits for his response.

3. Prompt the child to use new communication skills

Prompt new communication skills by using verbal, visual or physical guidance.

Fabiana, Archie’s mom, physically prompts him to use the communication device by holding his hand to press the “No, thank you” icon on his app. Then, Fabiana takes away the vegetables and immediately offers something he likes.

4. Allow the child to communicate independently

Slowly remove the prompts so children don’t become dependent on them. You can do this by waiting one or two seconds before using a prompt in order to give the child an opportunity to communicate independently.

After Pacho requests cookies several times, Delicia waits for one second before using modeling or prompting strategies. Delicia will periodically increase the time delay by one or two seconds until finding a delay that encourages independent responding.

Archie says “No, thank you,” with the app when Fabiana prompts him, so she starts waiting for one second before using modeling or prompting. Fabiana will increase the time delay by one or two seconds each day.

5. Expand and generalize to other people, settings and activities

Using modeling and prompting strategies to add new words to phrases the children have already mastered.

When Pacho can independently asks for cookies by saying “Cookies, please” several times, Delicia teaches him a new word by adding “Want cookies, please.”

When Archie can independently use the communication app to say “No, thank you,” several times, Fabiana teaches him a new word by adding “No carrot, thank you.”

Use these strategies during your children’s everyday activities, such as brushing their teeth, having lunch, going to the park or riding in a car.

It is essential to use these strategies with different people and in different settings consistently over time.
