    if this parent works offering to babysit to be alone with the child.Many times the offender manipulates the adults as well as the children.


    Fighting a back against pedophiles


    Pedophiles use a lot time stalking and building a relationship with their victom ussually not seeing having a sexual relationship with a child as wrong or perverse. We must teach our children appropriate and inappropriate touching at a very young age. Encourage open communications that they can come tell with out a huge angry outburst, they must be made feel as safe telling. Seek immediate medical attention any time a sexual offense has occurred. Contact appropriate law enforcement file complaints many times people avoid filing complaints this allow the offender to continue assaulting children with no history of his crimes. Be aware if an adult has odd behaviors towards a child and actions report your fears to law enforcement often the parent or care giver can be in denial.


    Last  tid bit i would like to share never make a false report out of spite.The time used to investigate could have saved a child from being abused. Truly there should be arrest for false statements made in these cases however molestation and rape are very hard to convict on unless there is overwhelming physical eveidence so that being said.
