“C is for Child Sexual Abuse” by Monika.

So if a child doesn’t tell you (about the abuse), how does a parent/care giver figure out… according to the internet and various manuals I have read, some warnings to watch out would be

  • Acting out in an inappropriate sexual way with toys or objects
  • Nightmares, sleeping problems
  • Becoming withdrawn or very clingy
  • Becoming unusually secretive
  • Sudden unexplained personality changes, mood swings and seeming insecure
  • Regressing to younger behaviours, e.g. bedwetting
  • Unaccountable fear of particular places or people
  • Outburst of anger
