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.
