  • I'm right there with you a survivor of Child moslestation, I would hope all parents listen to their children when they say they were molested.

  • and also my child is in therapy but her behavior is still pretty bad and the man who did it is no longer allowed around my kids i removed all his pictures and we dont talk about him in front of her a woman told me that would teach to be afraid of him but shes 4 and i think she has plenty of time to learn not to be afraid of him when shes ready to face it.If she sees him she has nightmares for a week.

  • I hope this helps because i missed these signs because i thought that she was going throught the terrible 2s and i didnt know these were signs of child molestation even though i myself was molested when i was 3.and today she was also diganosed with ADHD so now she'll have to be put on meds for that because she cant control herself but please if you suspect your child is or has been molested please take immediate action dont be afraid because the person who did it will probably suggest that someone else did it just like the man that molested by duaghter did

  • And this is the reason I want my toddlers to get that SDT vac that they won't give them until 9 or 10. It isn't that I WANT it to happen, it is that it DOES happen despite ones best efforts! And now you have to worry that she will get HPV and get cancer earlier than her peers. (Just so you know, because you know this happened you should get her a pap starting at first menstrual cycle...)
