We are Dedicated to Helping Sexual Molestation Victims
We can try to protect our children from predators, but by their very nature, predators are slick. They can easily convince children and their parents that the child is safe in their care. Children can be very good at hiding the fact that they have been molested, sometimes for many years. They often hide their molestation because the abuser told them it was their little secret. Furthermore, the kids are told that if they do tell a parent or teacher, everyone will think badly of them.
One of the signs of sexual molestation is that your child begins to act differently. The child may be less talkative than normal or act out when they used to sit and quietly listen. In addition, children who have been abused are often suddenly afraid of being touched or held. Don’t rush to punish a child for misbehaving, as there may be something else going on. Sometimes, a lack of respect for authority can be a sign that the child is dealing with something difficult for them to process. The child may be acting out so that someone will recognize the fact that they need help. Tell your children that they can turn to you and talk to you about anything and that you love them unconditionally, no matter what.
