Thank you for this important article. I am sending it to everyone I know that has children. As a survivor of child sexual abuse, I all too well know the long term effects of this devastating violation. Our society needs to do more to protect our children. Parents & guardians really need to listen to their guts about people. You don't need to know all the information up front!, if something seems "off", don't make the mistake of hesitating taking action. Its better to be safe than sorry!. Your child's wellbeing & safety depend on your being "present in the moment". Once its too late, the damage has been done!.


Thank you for sharing.

Looking back, I am very grateful for never having had such an experience, especially when it's pretty obvious that no one is immune.

Sex predators on our children are usually trusted relatives, friends and often the father. Uncles are high up the list as are boyfriends, baby sitters and trusted neighbors.
