I was thinking the other day about the huge numbers of girls who are molested every year. My daughter is 2 1/2 and I was wondering when the right time to start talking about good touch/bad touch would be. I don't think she's ready yet, which led me to another train of thought.
If a molester were not hurting her, in her 2 year old mind, she may not know the difference between being molested and being cleaned. This is both comforting and frightening. Comforting because if it were to happen then she wouldn't be super traumatized and terrifying because if it happened she wouldn't know to tell me or show any signs that it had happened so the person could be stopped.
How do I teach a child who still needs to have her diaper changed the difference between mommy or daddy cleaning her up and a pedofile getting off on it?
