That statistic you quoted isn't accurate, although we don't know the actual numbers that go on to abuse because child abuse is woefully under-reported. I'm sure one or more of my visitors will come on here and say that it's 90% the other way, but that's not accurate either. Suffice to say that most abuse survivors do NOT go on to abuse their own children. The fact that your questioning all this is a good thing. It shows you are aware; and generally, people who are aware can and do act in a more appropriate way. But right now you need help. Please contact Kids Helpline in Canada at 1-800-668-6868. They are staffed with professionally trained counsellors who will help you with your options. They are not a reporting agency, and you can remain anonymous.

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

You won't abuse your children if you don't want to. We do what we want - we succumb to impulses if we want.

Going through therapy and learning how to cope with anger and hurt will give you the stability you need to someday raise children. Therapy takes time, but if you make a conscious effort to work on YOU everyday of your life you will succeed in everything you want to.

Sexual abuse changes us & it's up to us to change into what we want for ourselves & sometimes we need a professional's (therapist)help.

I wish you luck on you journey. A great book is The Courage To Heal.

It will be okay
by: Emma

I too was molested as a child and although i did go on to have children at a very young age, i have never touched my children in a wrong manner, and i know that i will do whatever i can to prevent anyone else from doing it either. its not right what your mother did and thats what you need to understand. there are two kinds of people who touch children. child molesters, they do it to hurt or degrade a child. pedophiles think that there is some kind of relationship between them and a child and that its okay. niether of this is ok. while im sure some people do end up repeting what thier parents do you are your own person and understand that this is not a right thing to do

You are strong
by: Michelle

For you to even write these words down at your age shows your strength. I was molested and have two beautiful daughters who I have vowed to never abuse. It is a CHOICE and I'm proud of you for recognizing the need to break the cycle in your family. There are MANY healthy ways to show love for a child and you will have a rebirth when someday you have your own family to love (but hopefully not soon...you have LOTS of life to live before starting your own family). All my best!
