Making The Country Safe For Our Kids: What Can We Do?

Let us take concrete steps to safeguard our children.


The Supreme Court today issued a notice to the Government and the CBI based on a plea filed by the father of the child from Ryan International School who was murdered last week. The Supreme Court has said that it will look into safety of students in schools across India.


While the efforts of the Supreme Court are laudable, it is time for us to think of what are we doing as parents, caregivers and as responsible citizens to ensure that schools, homes, play areas - all public and private places are safe for our children. Let us ensure that our children are able to enjoy their childhood in all innocence, without fear.


Let us join hands and work towards specific measures that will make our country a safer place for kids.


Please respond to this article with one way in which you think we can make public places safer for kids.

Schools , the one place we trust will keep our kids safe when they are away from is. This was incredibly sad

Laws shd b made so strict  by the govt.  That if one  is punishd the othr shd hv a lessn.

I think primarily we should teach our child about good touch bad touch, they must not talk to any stranger's neither take any etables from them, we should talk to them every day about how their day in school was, whom they met, what they did, etc in a friendly manner....I think it's a high time and only we can teach our kids about the world outside home and how to protect themselves from the cruel and sick eyes.

This was really a sad incident, how can we trust the authorities of schools, this happened in the toilet, so I think there should be trustworthy person near the toilets too to watch over kids. the laws should be ao strict and the punishments worth remembering.

Gone are the days where we went to school peacefully and the only thing our parents were worried" Did we eat our lunch" and our worries were just studies. I still can't believe these things are happening at schools , more than my delivery I'm worried about my child's education and school. Baby is so safe inside me now.

Priya Sood

What will it take for authorities to take strict many innocent is our basic right

Dr. Payal M

we will try to teach our kids..but why is no govt or judiciary taking up this issue. we need capital punishment fr these crimes.
the nirbhaya accused r still alive :(((

Shrishti Bansal

I think schools where there is a minor lapse in their security systems , no matter how minor it is , the school should be shut down with the immediate effect . Ministry should lay down detailed guidelines for ensuring safety of the children , quarterly checks should be done and any lapses found should lead to immidiate shut down of the school . No excuses to be entertained

Shipra Dang Kataria

There should be strict monitoring on each student in school. Schools are taking a lot of money from us. They have to pledge for our kids safety becoz each child spends 8 to 9 hours of a day in school. For other places rules should be more strict for kids.

Maria Abdul(the lyrical momma)

Only female helping staff and they too should be regularly trained.
Security check for all,including teachers.
All schools should appoint a person who is always patrolling the school to see that all is in order.Pay them. Maybe get educated parents  on board.

Sonam patel

Children are no where safe now a days... Schools should b under strict cctv supervision and there should b one staff always to monitor the activities going on through these cameras.. May b then situation can b under control.

Anchal Talwar

I'm worried about my child also. i think strict rules should be laid which should be Regulated by govt every two months. Secondly, it makes you feel more worried when you read these cases and no action is taken against it. every child is precious to his family. so school should be under strict vigilance by some powerful authorities
