Parents have been advised against showing their nakedness to their children as it was tantamount to screening pornographic materials to them.

Reverend Mrs Suzie Lamptey, a renowned Relationship and Family Counsellor who gave the advice, said even though most parents made a conscious effort to prevent their children from watching pornographic materials, they unconsciously expose them to the same things at home by exposing their nakedness to them.

Rev Mrs Lamptey explained that even at a younger age, such exposures painted a picture on the minds of the children which replayed whenever they were alone leading to them touching their own genitals.

She further noted that the touching of their genitals led to the rise of some arousal in them and subsequently, masturbating or sexually abusing their peers and friends at the least opportunity as they could not touch the parents who have exposed them to their nakedness.

She was speaking at a day’s seminar for parents of the Golden Treasures International School in Tema, organized by the school’s Parents Teacher Conference (PTC) on the theme: “Knowing and understanding your child”.

She disclosed that a lot of couples were having sexual satisfaction challenges in their marriage as an effect of one of the couples engaging in extreme masturbation from their childhood due to exposure to their parent’s nakedness.

According to her, such persons married because of societal pressures and do not find sexual satisfaction from their partners but rather from themselves.

She pleaded with parents to desist from bathing with their children and dressing in front of them saying “bathe the children while you have covered yourself and let them leave before you bath.”

Touching on other aspects of parenting, she encouraged parents to set aside at least 15 minutes each for their children every day during which they must listen to them, discuss and address their challenges both at school, home and among their friends.

She also asked them to hype the good behaviours of their children to empower them to exhibit them more while correcting their faults in love but firmly.

Rev Mrs Lamptey also reminded parents that as leaders of their homes, they must teach their children how to give by occasionally giving them gifts, being attentive to them whenever they needed to discuss something with them.

Parents, she said, must also monitor what their children did on social media as children and youth were acquiring a lot of unacceptable behaviours from there.

Mr Erick Andoh, PTC Chairman said the seminar was an annual activity organized as a refresher course for parents and teachers of the school on selected topics.

Mr Andoh added that the seminar also served as a platform for parents to acquire some insight into the cognitive and physiological growth of their children to help them face the new challenges in parenting today’s children.
