Child Sexual Abuse – A Mother in Pain

by Angry Mom
(Location Undisclosed)

I have been reading some of the stories that people have posted and all i can say is that i am truly sorry that every one of you had to go thru what you went thru. I am a mom of a child who was sexually abused 7 yrs ago. d (my child) did not tell me for 7 yrs. d finally had a mental break down and was hospitalized and told the pshchologist.d was abused at the age of 8 and the perp was 11 at the time. d has been on a rollercoaster all this time and i never knew!!!! i am mom and am to protect my child!! d used drugs and did other things but fortunately never chose to hurt another child. d is doing so much better i have a (normal) child again. i thought d had adhd tried meds they did not work. therapy but during therapy never revealed what happened. d got scared when d heard someone died from the drugs. d went cold turkey and then now d is where d is at now. i am the 1 who is very upset and angry as the perp might not even get a slap on the wrist for what he did to my d. 7 years of tourture for him. we (parents) believed d when he told. we went to the authorities. we r getting d all the help necessary. but my question is why does the perp most if not all times get off and act as if nothing has happened?? my child suffered and the perp just goes on with his life??!!


i know way too many people who were sexually abused and the perp has no remourse! I am so angry i do not know how to handle it at times.I know better than to do something wrong (kill the B!!!!!d) I am a christian but i hurt so much for my child. Never did it enter my mind that d was abused during those 7 years of life. d was hurt only 3 times but 3 is 3 too many times. d is now 15 it has only been alittle over a month since it came out. we have a long way to go. but d is a survivor and mom will survive too. i just want ALL the sex abuse to stop!! thankyou for letting me vent. there is more to tell. My mom was abused, an attempt was made on me and my brother.fortunately we were one of the blessed 1's. God bless all of you
