How to Protect your Daughter from Sex Offenders

Sex offenders are everywhere and most of the time, they are hard to recognize. Although there are sex maniacs who have manifestations on their looks, language and mannerisms; even the most decent man can be a rapist too. For the record, most sexual abusers are the ones the girl trusts like her father, grandfather, sibling and even close friends and classmates. This is because you will not think that they can do that to your daughter. Moreover, sexual abuse also includes sexually suggestive conversation, inappropriate kissing and malicious touching. In this case, you as a mother should have time to read and understand the tips below.

Have a watchful eye

You must know all the men your daughter is connect to, including your husband. When it comes to your daughter, trust no one. Do your best to accompany your daughter wherever she goes especially if she is still young and helpless. You must also know the kind of language she is learning from school. At home, it is better if you sleep beside her all night long. His father should not bathe her or even touch her sensitive parts anytime even if she is still a toddler.

There are some good points here GA, however I have tremendous difficulty with the responsibility being placed solely on the mother to watch her children closely.

In our society, such as it is, mothers are being blamed wrongfully and maliciously as being "neglectful" parents of sexually abused children.

As my series of articles on child sexual abuse will show, there is no surefire way of preventing our children from ever becoming a victim of sexual abuse. The only way to prevent it from happening to your child at all, is not to have children.

That may seem extreme for me to say that, but it's true. I do not recommend sleeping alongside children as a means to protect them from becoming a victim. Considering the fact that the age range for most sexually abused children (boys and girls) is just before entering their puberty years, when their curiosity about themselves and their bodies begins to form, sleeping alongside children at this stage would not be appropriate.

Stay tuned for my continued series on sexual abused children, and let me know what you think.

Hi Lin,

Actually, when I mentioned that sleeping alongside with a daughter, I meant that it is for mother-daughter only and when the daughter is still a toddler.

I never slept beside my daughter since she was a baby, no matter how hard she requests me, and I tell her the real reason, that the devil can come inside of me anytime.

Thanks for visiting this post and I look forward for your articles about sexually abused children.

We thought our children were safe when we left them in their grandparent's care at our home many years ago when we went away on a long awaited holiday. Years later we discovered that was not the case. Once the girls started to go through sex education at school their behavior changed and eventually came out this horrendous story of what a grandfather did to them when they were quite young. Each time their grandmother was out of the room and it was with one girl at a time. How do you tell little girls that are very young what is or isn't appropriate?

Hi AT,

I visited your blog and read the whole story.

With your question how to tell little girls what is appropriate or not is not the sole solution. We can give them advices. Adults are always stronger than children, in all aspects.

If you noticed, my first tip is to have a watchful eye w/c means trust no one.

I have been mentioning this from time to time, the devil is always waiting for a chance to enter into a good human.

I also tell this to my wife and daughter. Protect yourself from everyone, that includes me.

Thanks for the visit.
