Signs that a child is being sexually abused are often present, but they can be indistinguishable from other signs of child stress, distress, or trauma. Knowing what to look for can help.
Child grooming is a deliberate process by which offenders gradually initiate and maintain sexual relationships with victims in secrecy.
Discovering that your child has a problematic sexual behavior can be
overwhelming. It can bring about a flood of emotions, from anger to
sadness, denial, shame and guilt. Having the right help and support is vital
to helping your child and assisting you in gaining a sense of hope for the
future. You are not alone. Help is available.
