Sexual abuse

I recently learnt about a few cases of sexual abuse that affected people I know – that either happened to their kids or happened to them when they were kids.

The worrying pattern was that, regardless of whether it was a boy or girl child, most of them involved an adolescent boy they knew well.

On the one hand, it really sucks to learn of these stories.

On the other, as a parent of toddler who needs to (sadly) acknowledge reality, it is a reminder to exercise care and caution.
