The cycle starts but never ends

Until one person breaks the silence

And the story begins

 

Touched-- Multiple times by many different

males, friends, family and lovers....

  • The perpetrator ensures secrecy by isolating the child, threatening harm or death to the child or someone the child loves.
  • The perpetrator tells the child no one will believe them (which is often true - no one listens)
  • The child will be called a liar or punished
  • The child may be bribed or feel like they are prostituting themselves

It is only the abuser that values your silence.

"this is our special secret"

"this is how a father/mother loves their son/daughter"

."mom/dad will be mate at you if you tell"

The PERPETRATOR is often someone who is very important to the child. .
