Parents please…

Silencing a child that have been sexually abused does significant harm that is sometimes irreversible… 

1. It reeks havoc on the child’s self-esteem 

2. It forces the child to be introverted 

3. It causes the child to second guess there own thoughts, voice, instincts, feelings, emotions and judgement. 

4. It teaches the child that their feelings and worth is secondary to that of others…

5. It causes the child to not trust others and the list goes on…

Parents be careful of the subliminal messages and lessons you’re teaching your child/ren 

Parents be present! Parents listen! Parents be proactive!

  1. That is where the most harm comes. Not from the attacks because a child can recuperate from those. It is the silence most children are forced to bear to keep the family safe from shame. The silence demanded kills, figuratively and literally.
    Excellent post. Too bad the ones who need to read probably aren’t or wouldn’t follow through anyway. The family’s shame is too great, greater than the worth of the child.
    Perhaps submit it to some magazines.
