Abuse happens within all social classes, races and religions. Sexual abuse can take many forms:
- Sexual Touching
- Indecent exposure
- Fondling – oral or genital
- Exposure to pornographic material
Both boys and girls are sexually abused. This may happen many times or just once, but leaves a lasting impression. Children naturally trust adults. Sometimes adults betray that trust by making the child insecure and depressed and this may lead to many other problems later in life.
