Sexual abuse is so prevalent that it affects nearly every family in some way. Latest national reports on sexual abuse of children states that 1-in-4 girls and 1-in-10 boys report abuse. With these national averages, you could be a victim of abuse or you know some one who has been. One thing is for sure, it is a crime committed by cowards who have victims that are too young to defend themselves. Children can’t process the trauma, leaving them overwhelmed by feelings of sadness, shame, guilt, confusion, fear, anger, and sexual overstimulation.
