13310_112540282090645_100000040210270_271211_4985731_nAny one sign does not mean that a child was sexually abused, but the presence of several suggests that you begin asking questions and consider seeking help. Parents can help keep their children safe by teaching them the correct terminology to describe their body parts and what kind of touching and interaction is off-limits. But, sometimes even this is not enough. Below is a list of some of the more prominent signs of child molestation/sexual abuse…






Behavior you may see in a child or adolescent:

    • Has nightmares or other sleep problems without an explanation
    • Seems distracted or distant at odd times
    • Has a sudden change in eating habits
    • Refuses to eat
    • Loses or drastically increases appetite
    • Has trouble swallowing
    • Sudden mood swings: rage, fear, insecurity, or withdrawal
    • Leaves “clues” that seem likely to provoke a discussion about sexual issues
    • Develops new or unusual fear of certain people or places
    • Refuses to talk about a secret shared with an adult or older child
    • Writes, draws, plays, or dreams of sexual or frightening images
  • Talks about a new older friend
  • Suddenly has money, toys, or other gifts without reason
  • Thinks of self or body as repulsive, dirty, or bad
  • Exhibits adult-like sexual behaviors, language, and knowledge

All of the warning signs listed above are general indicators of sexual abuse in children. Many children do not actually disclose what happened; it is up to attentive adults to recognize hints. However, if you suspect a child has been abused by seeing these indications, please seek help immediately.  READ MORE HERE
