My first sexual experience was at 10. No I did not ask or want it, no I do not live in a third world country. Born and raised right here in the
heartland of America and not in the back hills of Virginia either.
Old men that cannot control themselves that lay prey to little girls.
Yes this happens.
It happens more than you realize.
Wake up and stop living in your Barbie and Ken Doll, Fox News reality.
Those of you with sons and daughters need to talk to them openly about sexual predators and sadly you must prepare them when they are young.
It is not fair a child is not allowed a childhood, but that is the way our current reality works.
I have bought a couple really good books, "My body Belongs to Me" and some other book for my nine year old grand daughter and told her that if anyone
trys to look at or touch her private parts and makes her feel uncomfortable to tell. Tell a teacher, tell mama, tell grandma, tell someone anyone
that will listen.
Now, when I was ten, I told, but nobody would believe me. No I wasn't a lying difficult kid, but the grownups in my life did not want to face a ugly
Lastly, know who is watching your child/children, get to really know who your children come into contact with - although one of the predators was a
orthodontist that like to cupple my budding breast frequently. When you take your kid to the dentist, doctor, ortho etc........stay in the room with
At 12 I even had a woman that lived next to my grandmother in Pensacola beach invite me over to her pool and show me how to french kiss.........I was
12 she was "old" maybe 50 or so?
Stuff like this is taboo and we aren't suppose to talk about it, but this happens and happens frequently.
Unless you drive your kid to school, pick them up right at 3:00 PM, take and stay home with them, investigate exactly who they play with and get to
know their parents - there is a chance your kid will eventually be prey to these misguided souls, some of which are actually family members.
This happens a lot, don't kid yourself, even here in America.
In Afghanistan, it is common practice for older men to "adopt" a young boy for sexual pleasures.
This is our current reality.
While watching the movie, "Precious", my husband, who grew up in a sheltered environment, could not believe that something like that could happen in
America..............it happens, everyday to many children, all over the world, including America.
Now, you wonder why we have so many screwed up adults, so many prisons, so much violence?
Currently, Hollywood is adding to this problem by having little girls swinging on poles, wearing outfits that should be worn by 20+ year olds and
sitcoms where little girls are allowed to act like adults.
Children should be allowed to be children and parents should be watching their children and listening to them more closely.
Lastly, If your child happens to be really pretty or "budding early" really keep a close eye on them.
Sexual predators are out there and many appear "normal".
A person's first sexual experience imprints upon their psyche deeply, you need to make sure at least your child, when they have their first sexual
experience, it is of their choosing.
