Town Square

Relatives, Friends,Clergy, Coaches, etc. The Real Risk to Children

Original post made by Jan, Fairlands Elementary School, on Feb 22, 2008

I am frustrated with adults, we don't want to face the real threat to our children, which is people they know and trust. Most children are molested by someone they know. A parent, step-parent, step-siblings, uncles, grandfathers, clergy, camp counselors, etc.

this is sad and true, as far as i know, i have only heard a few cases where i have known any personally, a good friend of mine found out his cousin was getting molested by by his brother. terrible thing. it shocked me, i can't imagine what it did to the family. so to those who have had problems like that speak out, help yourself to a youth that you're supposed to enjoy. not dread.
