Child Abuse - Toddler Sexual Abuse Concerns of Parents

Twilight Zone: 
Darlene, I have read several toddler sexual abuse concerns on your site. One common theme resonates, parental intuition is high and third party suspicion is high, yet there is an inability to stop sending children to the abuser until there is concrete evidence of who is the abuser, must report to CPS and wait!!!...


This is living the TWILIGHT ZONE for both parent and toddler!

Immediate intervention is key to healing.

Why hasn't the standard been to remove the toddler from the environment where they fear, set them up in play therapy, watch for signs of improvement and if there is do not send the toddler back?????? The toddler is innocent until proven guilty...let's take care of them and not wait on the red tape of CPS.

How does one continue to send their children in harms way without deep remorse? How many of these parental intuition cases are in fact true? The statistics for toddlers is they do not disclose until seven years of age or later of the abuser so what is the long-term sequelae (resulting pathological condition) on these children? and Finally, how could that parent not feel totally responsible for the mental and physical outcome of their child when they could have "run away" and protected the child.

This should not be a rock and a hard place for any parent, rather a clear succinct pathway to protect the child.
