These fears made Toñita teach her daughter to defend herself against possible attacks and instilled in her to have the confidence to express them to her if they happened, and explained that she delayed her daughter's entry to “maternal”, before kindergarten for fear that, because I did not know how to speak, I would not be able to communicate possible attacks.

“My fear was that (my daughter) would not be able to speak and that she would not know how to tell us, so I, as a mother, waited for my daughter to speak; I told him that if someone touches you like that, it's wrong, "he concluded.
