Behavioral Indicators of Possibly Molested Children
The possibility of sexual abuse must be considered when the child:
- Demonstrates unusual, bizarre or sophisticated sexual knowledge
- Has difficulty sitting or walking, or shows any other physical signs of molestation
- Contracts a venereal disease or becomes pregnant (especially if s/he is under 14)
- Complains of itching or pain in the genital area
- Has stained, bloody or torn underclothing
- Draws or writes material having strong sexual themes
- Shows extremely desperate behavior like running away from home
- Looks more mature in appearance or behavior than their age
- Tells that s/he or another child is sexually involved with some adult
Behavior problems at school can also be signs of some form of abuse
Be wary if the child:
- Becomes too shy or withdrawn and having extreme difficulty making friends or peer relationships
- Becomes hyperactive, especially when among younger children
- Shows signs of depression or mental stress through such signs as low self-esteem, suicidal thoughts or self- injurious behavior
- Begins to bed wet, especially when sleeping among younger children
- Demonstrates extremely promiscuous behavior, especially between the ages of 11 and 13
- Acts without apparent regard for self-respect and personal safety
- Begins abusing drugs and alcohol
- Suddenly refuses to change for sports or gym class
- Begins to violate social and legal codes
What to Do If You Catch A Molester?
Sexual abuse is a serious crime. If you believe someone has molested your child or any other child, do not try to handle it yourself! When caught, a predator will always say that it was their “first time” and he will also promise never to do it again. But he will be lying and he is good at it. Call the police and report abuse! The best thing one could for one’s own child and for the other children (past or potential victims of the predator) is to report the crime to the authorities. If a molester has preyed on your child, he will do it to others too unless he’s stop stopped.
