Foluke Daramola-Salako, a Nollywood actress who talked about how being raped at a young age affected her role as a mother in a new interview, disclosed that it largely influenced how she has raised her 13-year-old daughter.
Foluke Daramola-Salako who called for capital punishment for sex offenders as she recounted how being raped affected her role as a mother, told Saturday Beats;
“I always enlighten my daughter about how some men can be when it comes to sex. Even when I am not around her, she always cautions men when they try to touch her in a way she is not comfortable with. She tells me when she feels harassed by a man. She is out of the country at the moment, and people always call me to ask me how I trained her.
“In my days as a young woman, I couldn’t discuss sex with my mum; even till now, I still cannot do that because of the orientation I had as a young girl. If my daughter should get deflowered today, she will tell me because we are friends. I started discussing sex education with my daughter when she was six; I didn’t feel it was too early because she had a rapid growth.
“I was raped by my tenant because he thought I was older than my actual age. I am comfortable with my daughter being around men because I have educated her,” she said.
