Sexual abuse within siblings is the news that has left many people Wondering how this alleged type of abuse could take place within a family.
Unfortunately, sexual abuse among siblings is much more common than most people know. It is not limited to certain types of families , it occurs in many different kinds of families. It can go on for a long time before parents are made aware of this issue.
And sadly, some parents don’t take appropriate actions when they’re made aware of the problem.And next atrocious part is many children who reveal sexual abuse by a sibling aren’t believed by the parents.
Parents were much more likely to blame their child for the abuse or doubt the story altogether when the perpetrator is their own blood.
Sad to say just like other forms of childhood trauma , sexual abuse can have a long lasting effect on a victim. Survivors in our society may feel like they were to blame or they convinced themselves they were a co-conspirator , rather than a victim.
There is often deep sense of shame when the perpetrator was a family member. They are clenched to not discuss with anyone just because of false reputation.
They can experienced mental health problems , sexually dysfunction , anxiety lingers around them and publicly their confidence is downrooted.If they speak then sometimes ,they experience ongoing relationship or living problems as a result.
So be the helping hand if someone need your side .
