Is This how You see Child Sexual Abuse?

Did You Know...

One in every 4 girls and one in every 6 boys are sexually abused?  That means that you most likely know several victims of sexual abuse.  It is also likely that you know a couple of  abusers.  The greatest risk to your child is dose not come from strangers but rather from someone you and your family know and trust (eg. your friends, a family member/relative, your child's teacher or babysitter).  "Over 90% of children who are sexually abused know their abusers" (Darkness to Light -confonting child sexual abuse with courage).  Abusers look and act like normal people, often going out of their way to be seen as trustworthy.
