I grew up in India where its so dangerous to walk on the roads and take public transport as this kind of abuse happens all the time . When I grew up and started working , I was taking the public transport to office and back and I got touched in the bus and on the road even though I wore the Indian dress( kurta pajama). Someone in the bus had fondled my chest and it was so heartbreaking for me .The first time it happened to me , I came home and hugged my mother and cried . My older sister told me that the best defense in buses was to carry a safety pin and then poke the person who tried doing anything to you.It worked.
Now I am in America and I have 2 boys - 5 and 2 . I am listening to this show to learn , when is the appropriate time to talk to them.
