Isha was shell-shocked to know that the tuition teacher had abused her eight-year-old son. How could that have gone unnoticed from her caring and watchful eye. " How do I handle this" . " How will the child live with this memory" Here are tips for parents on ways to deal with a sexually abused child: 1. Parents, who are secondary victims in any abuse case, tend to deny such an incident. At a later stage this denial gives way to anger, which they direct at themselves and the offender. But such overpowering feelings have to be controlled. 2. Believe in the child. Even if the offender is a trusted family friend or a close neighbour or a relative, parents should not disbelieve a child when the latter narrates an experience of sexual abuse. 3. Always look in control, even if you are shaken from within 4. Remove the burden of guilt. 5. Behave normally. 6. Encourage your child to express his inner feelings, either in creative competitions or elocution. 7. Professional counseling along with psychiatric help will also help you to deal with your own trauma. Discuss this topic!
