Here is one reason why getting a househelp without background checks can be a disaster to your children.

A 5-year-old girl was found masturbating with a nail.

The five year old orphan also disclosed that the domestic help in the house had taught her to use a nail to masturbate without the knowledge of her grandmother, who she lives with.

The young girl's secret act was exposed after she was discovered to have had boils in her private part.

She was reportedly taken to a gynaecologist, who found out what the young girl had been doing after questioning her.

It was further reported that the little girl revealed that she has been using a nail to “play with herself”.

The girl said that she has taught all her friends in school the act and had once been expelled from a school.
