Children ARE perfect victims for so many reasons, not the least is fear of telling for being punished or fear of not being believed. None of what happened was your fault. Fault lies solely on the shoulders of the pedophile because he chose to offend you. Your story clearly shows that parents MUST approach parenthood with an eye toward allowing their children to have a voice; otherwise, they learn as you did: that they cannot safely talk to a parent when they need to. If there is any way you can, report him, because he is very likely still sexually abusing children. I do hope you're in some form of counseling in order to help you deal with the repercussions of what you endured. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Re: Thank you

Thank you for all of your kind words of wisdom, I have every intention of seeking help because I have a 9 year old sister and a 8 year old niece and 5 year old nephew that I watch over like a body guard. I afraid every minute of the day someone will do them wrong the only comfort I have is knowing that my brother has a great relationship with them and they tell him everything and I also have the relationship with all of them to ensure they feel comfortable and trust me enough to always tell me anything and everything.

Thanks again for letting me share my story and for the advice you wonderful woman (and man) have given me.

You are strong

Nette that evil scum was the person in the wrong from the first moment and what made it that much harder was your mum not being the best to talk to. I could never talk to my mum either, I have not long talked to her about my sexual abuse. I hope you can feel so much better in yourself by being a fantastic aunty.
