Due to the critically-acclaimed success of “Ako ay may Titi” by Genaro R. Gojo Cruz, a lot of girl moms has been asking for the counterpart. Written by Glenda Oris with illustrations by Beth Parrocha, Lampara Books has now published “Ako ay may Kiki“.
This book talks about an important part of a girl’s body, which is her vagina, and it is about a 5-year old girl who tells a story about how she takes good care of it, what to wear, and how to act and move properly as a little lady. Basically it is hygiene habits, which can help prevent illness like UTI and most importantly how they can prevent themselves from child abuse.
A lot of parents when cringe at the title, I know a lot! But reality speaking, it is what it is. We may not be at ease but as I’ve said from the other blog, it is how we parents communicate this story to our girls (or boys).
A lot of you may ask me why did I even get a copy of the book when I don’t even have a daughter. You know why? Simply because I have a son. I have a son who is almost at the age when children start to be curious. Since I’ve already opened up a little about his own private part through “Ako ay may Titi”, why not introduce to him the counterpart as well? This is in a way can teach him how to respect girls, when the time comes na medyo may “isip” na siya. At least I know, hindi ako nagkulang.
For a boymom like me, this book is highly recommended. Make sure to grab a copy and just go with the flow when curious minds arise. Don’t dilly dally, hesitate and be ashamed. The book is best for children five years old and above. You can buy “Ako ay May Kiki” for only Php100 via Shopee.
