Child sexual abuse is such a hidden crime that the abuser frequently gets away with in life for several years. Parents and other people in the family usually only know about the child sexual abuse that occurred several years later when the child becomes an adult. Children will often speak out about the child sexual abuse that they endured once they reach adulthood. Here are five unique signs of child sexual abuse.
Obey Someone Too Much
Do you notice the child that obeys a certain person a little too much? Take note that it is a bad sign whenever you notice that the child obeys a certain person to an extreme. It can be a result of sexual abuse that the adult has been doing to the child so therefore it explains why the child obeys every command.
Child Moves Away From Adult
It can be quite tricky to figure out which adult is the one that commits sexual abuse towards the child. The child will usually move away from the adult that commit sexual abuse towards them. The child will also move away from any adult that attempts to touch them like a hug. It is a good idea to do process of elimination in cases of child sexual abuse.
You Discover Sex Education Books From Public Library
You may find out indirectly that child has been missing school to go to the public library. The child may be trying to figure out whether she might get pregnant by telling someone about the abuse that has been going on. Young children are not educated enough to know whether oral abuse can make her pregnant or not. She or someone older might be reading educational books about sexual things from the library. You might even find books about sexual abuse that the child checked out from the library hidden in a backpack.
Sexual child abuse can be discovered through bloody clothes that are hidden in a bedroom since the child usually does not want to tell anyone. Some children will wash their clothes in the bathroom or washer trying to get rid of it. Parents need to keep an eye out for blood on clothes. Mothers can usually tell the difference between menstrual blood by the way it forms on the clothes compared to normal color of blood.
You Discover The Incident Written In Child Diary
Children often know when something is wrong that adults do to them. Some children do not know how to tell their parents. Some children don’t trust their friends if the adult threatened them with the statement that nobody will believe them since they are a child. The child might be willing to write about the incidents in the diary in order to sort out the confusion that one frequently feels from the emotional trauma that is caused from the type of abuse.
Child sexual abuse is often committed by the person that you least expect it to be in the family. It could even be a friend of the family as well. Don’t ever overlook the new stepfather or stepmother in the family despite how much everyone loves them. Abusers frequently seem like the most nicest person in the whole world in front of everyone else because it is the perception that they are trying to maintain to everyone.
