The Child Sexual Abuse Series- R’s story.

The Child Abuse Series is to give people who were molested an opportunity to share their experiences, so that parents can see the need to create a safe environment for their kids, so as to reduce the possibility of child sexual abuse to the barest minimum. Everyone who shares on this platform will be anonymous except he/she chooses otherwise. Read “R’s” story below:

…………………………………………………………

I faced abuse when I was much younger, from primary 2 or so.
.
“I’ll kill you if you tell anybody ”
.
I was a bold child but I was scared of what my info would result to. So I kept it to myself.
.
The molester was an elderly man of about 60- 70 at that time. He was my cousin’s fiance’s father and then, my cousin was responsible for looking after my siblings and I. To keep up, she’ll bring us over to her fianc√©’s family house, so his family would watch over us as she’s away with the guy. Sometimes she does this too, when she’s off to computer lessons.
.
.
I’ll always resist going there, she’ll beat me up and report me to my mum that I always make her run late for her computer lesson. I only got free when she gained admission and left.
Imagine if my cousin and even my mum had paid close attention to me. Just maybe I could have told them the reason I didn’t like going there.
.
Parents shouldn’t revere people. “This one is my uncle, such can’t happen”, This one is this, that can happen, this one is that…” Kai. That’s a foolish thing.

Abuse isn’t the best experience for a child in his or her formative years. Think about the esteem issues it could result to in your child. Think about the sexual dysfunction the child will likely experience in adulthood.
.
.
Think about the fear, anxiety, suicidal ideas and behaviors that comes alongside if not properly managed.

I’m so glad R has healed and didn’t mind sharing this with us. I can’t still fathom how a man of 60-70 could find a child of 12 years old appealing. You cannot afford to entrust your kids with just anyone. I’m pretty excited that a specialist in this field will be taking to us soon about the main things we need to know about protecting our kids from paedophiles. In the meantime, if you need to send in your story, email me at- wumi.fatogun@gmail.com.

Cheers guys.
