Did you know that some victims of child sexual abuse prefer to confide in teachers rather than parents? Even those from "good" loving homes?
I wore glasses that covered half of my face, chap stick for lip gloss, and three different decades of attire except for the one that we were currently in-the 1980’s.
I trusted a girl who I thought was my very best friend. My first one. She was not.
I told her the truth.
That would have made all the difference. I was forced—when I was a very little girl.
She had jumped to a couple of conclusions.
- She assumed that the activity was consensual. It was not.
- She assumed that it must have been with some guys from around the way. In fact, the activity did not involve any boys or men near that school. It didn’t involve any boys or men who were currently residing in our city.
With a child or teen in crisis.
They panic! I mean lose it!
