In this interactive take on Child Abuse, Bisi Is The Boss‘ author Bola Tinubu assumes the tone of Bisi, a well informed little girl to raise important issues on Child Abuse and how best to both avoid and handle it. The book provides parents with a fun yet educative way to navigate delicate topics regarding private body parts, boundaries and speaking up in the case of abuse.
Including fun trivias, colourful characters as well as a kids colouring section, Bisi Is The Boss amounts to an all encompassing read not only simplifying the difficult subject of abuse but also providing a bonding platform between guardians and the children in their care.
Being a highly invested advocate for Children’s right and a Mother, Bola Tinubu established the Cece Yara Non-profit organisation in 2016 armed with a multi-disciplinary team of counsellors, social workers, child advocates, lawyers and forensic interviewers to prevent child sexual abuse and to provide access to care, information, protection and emergency intervention for children who have experienced sexual abuse or who are at risk.
“…Our vision is to create a safe and happy childhood for every Nigerian child – free from sexual abuse and with easy access to care, information, protection and emergency intervention.” – Bola Tinubu
