Privacy Issues

The sad truth is sexual abuse is way too common in society and it has always been so.  That’s not to say we can’t all work to make things better and one of the ways we can make things better is to face the truth that it happens with an open heart and an understanding mind.

There are children removed from their natural parents when abuse is revealed.  Some of these children end up adopted.  Often if there are several siblings, they end up in a variety of homes.

Sometimes, enlightened adoptive parents become aware of how to reach these siblings who do not live in the home of the child they adopted.

A question sometimes arises, how to explain the cause of removal to the child they are parenting in an age-appropriate way.  A complicating factor could be the perspectives and desires of other adoptive or foster care or extended family (as in where the natural parents have divorced and remarried another person) when they do not want to reveal what any person deserves to know.

I wish adults never foisted their sexual impulses on children.  The reality is that it happens.  The question is how to reduce the incidence by the revelations of truth.  It may never be possible to end these horrendous acting outs on the part of some men but we can definitely make them less comfortable doing so.
