PEDOPHELES ARE KNOWN AS SERIAL CHILD ABUSERS

Women of today unaware of Social Diseases impacted by our unconscious actions are unintentionally putting their children in vulnerable environments.  Here in this blog we are seeking to inform the parent. 

Parents often imagine a child molester being an ugly old man dressed in a trench coat, hiding behind bushes in the dark of night behind bushes in the dark of NIGHT, just waiting for the right moment to kidnap or molest children.  However, child molesters come from all walks of life and not discriminate by Race, Gender, Social Class or Age.

It is a widespread misconception that Child molesters are complete strangers to their victims and statistics of child sexual abuse confirms that 90% of sexual abused victims know their abusers.  Children are most often sexually abused by family members and close family friends, such as fathers, brothers, grand fathers, uncles, cousins, boyfriends of single mothers, baby sitters etc  Also foster children are often put in what should be a protective environment are often molested by friends and neighbors family members of the foster parents. Often times children are put into group homes and molested by the children.

According to the US Department of Justice, pedophiles also referred to as serial child abusers share certain characteristics and behaviors:

HOW CHILD MOLESTERS LURE THE CHILDREN

Child molesters are professional con-artist, they are players with words, very skilled when it comes to manipulating children with various GROOMING METHODS.  In order to create a special bond of warmth and trust.  This may involve lavish attention, and gifts of money, alcohol or drugs, playful touching or tickling,  all in an effort to create and atmosphere of secret keeping.  It is important to note that most victims of child sexual abuse do not tell they were sexually abused, even when directly asked by a parent or other authority figures.

Pedophiles are extremely difficult to detect and can be found in the most unlikely places, making it imperative that parents provide children with the tools to recognize and avoid potentially abusive individuals and situations.

Parents must be extremely vigilant in teaching children about Good Touch Vs. Bad Touch, recognize and identify the signs and symptoms of child sexual abuse, and closely monitor children’s activities while online and off-line.  Single-parent homes are especially vulnerable, as the parent is trying to fulfill the role of a two-parent home, usually having a full-time job trying to run a house hold on their own. 

WHAT PARENTS CAN DO TO PROTECT CHILDREN:

Good communication is the single most effective way of protecting children from becoming sexually victimized.  Children need to be taught the proper and correct words for body parts, as well as the correct term SEXUAL ABUSE other wise, how will children know to tell parents that they were sexually abused.

If you suspect or are told your child has been sexually abused, immediately contact Child Help USA /10

HOW TO PROTECT OUR CHILDREN

WIN_20140211_155831

It has been called to my attention that, Young Women, Young Mothers are in such a turmoil with their choices in the Men of today.  With the obvious sexual revolution, marriage revolutions, the obvious confusions of sexual preferences.  One is forced into social life styles which breed confusions which often cause vulnerabilities for our children.  They are growing up with certain behaviors being modeled by parents that they are emotionally incapable of resolving on their own.  In my attempt to create clarity, I have  researched this information on the effects of leaving our children vulnerable to predators, child predators whom we trust and go unnoticed by mothers because we are unaware of the signs and we do not open to discussion. That being said:

HOW PEDOPHILES GROOM THEIR VICTIMS:

Most pedophiles groom their victims in a series of predictable stages.  Learn what to watch for and how to intervene.

PROTECT YOUR CHILD FROM ABUSE: 

Many people think that Child Molesters are strange men who hide in bushes and snatch unsuspecting children off the streets.  But in truth, a child is much more likely to be molested by some one He or She knows.

Before the molestation takes place, the perpetrator goes to great lengths to cement His or Her relationship with the child to insure compliance.

This behavior is called GROOMING.  According to Interpol, THE MAJORITY OF SEX OFFENDERS GROOM THEIR VICTIMS.  In his publication Child Molesters, A Behavioral Analysis and former FBI Agent  Kenneth V. Lanning, reports the Five Stages of Grooming and the process.  Please take a mental inventory of your circle of friends.  Identifying a possible victim; collecting information about the indented victim, filling a need, lowering inhibitions, and initiating the abuse.  The good news is that there are several opportunities during the process for savvy parents to sport what is going on and put a stop to it.

IDENTIFYING A POSSIBLE VICTIM:

The First Stage in the grooming process is the identification of a likely victim.  Pedophiles differ in their preferences regarding Gender, Age, Appearances, BUT almost every pedophile looks for a child who is vulnerable in some way.

Keep an eye out for any Adult who does not have children but who spends a lot of time around places like your Childs School and Playground.  DO NOT BE SHY, about asking questions of anyone who seems to be watching Your Child too closely.

COLLECTING INFORMATION:

The pedophiles next step is to gather as much information as possible about the intended victim.  Often this is done through casual conversation with the victim and/or the victims parents.  BE ON GUARD, if an adult starts asking you or Your Child questions that are overly intrusive and personal. Teach your Child that He or She does not need to provide personal information just because an Adult asks for it.

FILLING A NEED:

Once the pedophile knows a little about his victim, he steps into that Childs Life to fill a need.  Thus a poor Child might receive expensive gifts, a lonely Child might receive extra time, and attention, and a Child who feels unloved might receive unconditional affection.

Know the adults who play a dominate role in your Childs life.  Be aware if Your Childs suddenly starts talking about one adult more then any other.

LOWERING INHABITIONS:

Next the pedophile begins working to lower the Childs inhabitations about sexual matters.  He may make Sexual comments, show the Child pornographic movies, or pictures, or manufacture situations where He and the Child will be undressed.

At this stage, Children sometimes become a little uncomfortable around the abuser.  WATCH for any changes in attitude towards and Adult that has been important in your Childs life. Watch TOO, for inappropriate Sexual comments or interest. (Mr. Smith, says I have big Boobs).

INITIATING THE ABUSE

At this stage, the pedophile begins overt sexual abuse of the Child.  When the abuse occurs, many Children show marked changes in their personalities and behaviors.  Often they will look for an excuse to avoid the abuser.

When it comes to protecting your Child from abuse, inform yourself about the adults in your Childs life, investigate further and, if necessary, put a stop to any questionable relationships.  Anyone who truly cares about Children will understand your desire to protect your Child from harm and respect your decisions.
