    There are many resources to help parents to talk about such matters. The NSPCC is a fantastic site. I have gone through this with both my children that no means no and to distinguish a bad secret and know what to do. I am cautious about family members and as a teacher very in tune on how to look for cases and signs of abuse. This resource is particularly helpful https://youtu.be/u-m-gpG1mTU

    You are brave to talk about your abuse it great your parents believed you. Young boys don't talk about it because if they did they would feel that they are not a man . I was abused as a child now in my 70 I talked about it.... It helped me and later I went to therapy you live with it but you have to move on not let it define you. You may get flashbacks but they fade . Be strong live your life be who you want to be.

    Men need to speak up the way that women do. Rape is rape, abuse is abuse no matter who the victim is or who the criminal is. There is only two options, amputate or hang. If the law won't do it, you do it. You owe that to your child for not stopping it before it started.

    You are brave. Glad you have come out of it and healed. But about the abuser? Has he been named and shamed? U need to do that Hope he has been bought to justice and jailed Should be castrated. The abusers are usually ur close relatives, ur neighbour,ur teacher, coach Do not let ur children out of sight And even do not let them alone with ur trusted relatives. However close they are Could be as males, brother, uncle or even father Yes its a sickening thought, but very true Teach ur children,believe n trust ur children when they say something to u, don’t ignore them, don’t be ashamed to confront the abuser. Jail him or her and shame them in public U will be doing a big, big service to ur child ,

    Dont they teach kids what stranger danger is anymore in schools what to do if anyone stranger or many times likely friend of mom or dad, or heaven forbid mom dad uncle aunt gramps and gran brother sister cousin touches you like this? You definitely dont tell mom first if someone in the family did it you tell your teacher the one you trust the most or you tell a friends parents and keep telling until it you are no longer being molested raped hurt. Many times mom will think youre lying and wont believe daddy or uncle bubba did that. Id tell mom or dad but i wouldnt tell them first id get school counselor the principal to help tell

    Fucking disgusting I will NEVER UNDERSTAND how anyone can see a CHILD IN A SEXUAL WAY stealing away their innocence for their SELFISH DESIRES 🤬🤬🤬 good on him for spreading awareness and speaking his truth and his parents😊 many parents shockingly would be in denial🙄
