In what could be termed as a Shocking statement, a 13 year old girl revealed to her mother that she went into prostitution to satisfy her greediness for new gadgets and mobile phones.
The 13 year old, lives with her mother in a small house in Vadodara, Gujarat. Her mother runs a small grocery to help their living. In the mean time the girl got obsessed to her friends using high end gadgets and her peer pressures compiled her to own the same. Knowing that she could not afford the gadgets economically, the girl went into prostitution to help her wishes come true. The news dismayed her mother, when the girl unfolded the truth.
The mother tried to persuade the girl by telling what she was doing was completely an unacceptable offence. However, the girl did not obey her orders and instead argued with her mother defending her acts as correct. Eventually, the mother approached a counsellor to deal with her daughter.
The counsellor said that it was very difficult for them to make the girl believe that what she has done was socially incorrect. The counsellor said ” we have counselled the girl, at first the girl did not even try to listen to any thing if she was told her acts were wrong. such things happen when children are obsessed to a wish of acquiring new things”.
The mother who works at a grocery store, agreed that she was not able to concentrate on her daughter due to her work. The family has lost their male head three years ago. The girl used to use the vacant room for prostitution in the absent of her mother, the Times of India reports.
A psychologist said, ” gadgets are making a higher impact on children than anything else now a days. If this is not countered children will definitely become obsessed to them and in turn it may lead in to higher social problems in the society.”
