What if You Suspect Sexual Abuse With Your Children?

Sexual abuse from a trusted family member or friend can be difficult to spot. My friend, Jannie, suggests that being a very alert parent is the best way to deflect a predator. Pay attention to what is going on! Your chances of finding out are much better when you are watching. Children may not come and tell adults because the pedofile makes them keep secrets.

What's worse is that sometimes the molester is the child's own mom or dad. A child molester often abuses his or her own children for years without getting caught. Learn how to spot a pedophile in your home.
