Firstly, I pray to God you didn’t google this because you are dealing with a child molester. Shoot them in the head, sorry, no sympathy, buh-bye. If you’ll shoot someone for your truck, you’d damned well better shoot them for your child.
My actual point is how to deal with a child molester before there IS a child molester.
You have to teach your children how to trust themselves and their own judgement. Since you drop your kids off at various places and can’t watch them every minute, it’s important they are able to feel what their body is telling them. Every single person can recognize that something is wrong, regardless of their age and they need to be taught how to judge.
I used to ask my little five-year-old to find out the time. He would be forced to ask a stranger in the busy mall. I would watch him gauge all the people in the area and select the person he wanted to ask. Sometimes it was the grandma lady, maybe it was the man in the suit, and hooray and lucky me, it was the young, tattooed fella. He would gauge each one carefully and he learned to trust himself. I started to trust him too, he always made good choices.
Soon I had a ten-year-old. He went to a lot of activities by himself and now I have to trust he will tell ME when something is wrong. I’m not there watching, I only have his word.
Child molesters make sure children understand their parents don’t care for them. They make sure to enforce they are stronger than the parent. They go on to insist there would be trouble if the child said anything.
Make sure your young children understand you are strong enough to knock down any piece of shit, anyone hurting them, anyone! Say it before the child even knows why.
“Child, there is no one stronger than me. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.”
Say it every single day.
Make sure by the time your child is six years old they know how to judge people and how to trust themselves. Most importantly, make sure they know if they screw up and make a mistake, you’re willing to bring the damned world down to protect them.
Will you do that for me, please?
