There are things that we all don't like to here. Especially when its the bad things that we pretend aren't there.
Every parent has the same fear, of their child being hurt or in danger when were not there . We as parents know we will protect them and always give them proper care .
Most parents have left their child with a sitter, more than likely a family member or close friend that they trust with their kids. We would never put our children in harm's way. With all good intentions we believe no one we choose to watch our kids would ever hurt the them in a bad way.
There is something that we as parents don't really think about when it comes to people we are around everyday. We trust easily because of knowing them we automatically assume they are okay because we see how they act and maybe they are your family so we think it's okay. I am a parent that is guilty of the same.
I trusted but ended up with my 2-year-old getting molested. Yes, it went on awhile before I even knew it. This is something that happens all the time and majority of the parents don't even know it!
The scariest part is when you have a small child and they are being sexually violated they may not know that they are being hurt or even mistreated. Yes, they may know and feel it have discomfort or even a funny feeling. But if someone close to them violated them by a wrongful touch or rubbing them in the wrong spots, they could be told they are just friendly touches or fun. That may be taught as a good thing to a toddler, especially if it's one they look up to or see on a daily basis.
We as parents always assume that we would see signs. How many of the parents have really brought this to mind ? Honestly that's were I was blind. I thought I would notice any signs. I had a huge wake-up call, that is what happens majority of the time.
A parent never wants this to ever occur. This is something al ot of people rarely even think of and its happening more than we are aware of .
Sadly to say, a lot of these similar cases are dismissed due to family not believing or to save family disgrace it is easily dismissed. So this I couldn't express enough!
Please parents take what I say strongly really think about everyone you trust. Take it from a mother that had a painful life learned lesson. Never underestimate what anyone is capable of even the worst stuff.
