Molestation Facts

10 IMPORTANT FACTS TO CONSIDER

1) CHILD MOLESTATION EXISTS & IT ALWAYS WILL IF WE DO NOTHING ABOUT IT.

2) In spite of the millions of victims in our families, many people stick to their mistaken belief that child molestation has nothing to do with them.

3) 95 percent of child molestation can be prevented.

4) In order to prevent child molestation from happening to children close to us we must educate ourselves and then educate them.

5) Today, living in the United States, there are 39 million adults who have survived child sexual abuse.

6) Today, more than three million American children are victims. Most of them are struggling alone, and believing there is no adult who can help them.

7) Unfortunately, most of today’s children will never tell. They feel ashamed that this has happened to them. They are protecting their abuser because he or she is part of their family. They are protecting other members of their family – saving them from the pain of knowing.

8) An estimated one in 20 teenage boys and adult men sexually abuse children, and an estimated one teenage girl or adult woman in every 3,300 females molests children. Although that’s well over five million people, most families mistakenly believe that as far as molesters go, there has never been one in their family, and what’s more, there never will be. Add together the child victims, the adult survivors, and the abusers, and that’s 15 out of every 100 Americans who have been either a molested child or a molester.

9) By telling the people closest to you the facts, you can help those same people become strong adult protectors of the children closest to you.

10) If we use the conservative estimate that two in every ten little girls and one in every ten little boys are victims (based on the population reported in the 1999 U.S. Census statistical abstract) well over three million children are victims.

 

Let’s put the facts together:

  • Child molesters exist in every part of our society.
  • They molest children close to them, mainly children in their family or children in their social circle.
  • Most child molesters, 90 percent, report that they know their child victims very well.
