It’s a sad reality that sexual abuse of a child can occur anywhere including church, school, and at the Boy Scouts—organizations the public has grown to trust. Sadly, children are at risk of being abused at any of these locations and by people they trust like teachers, members of the clergy, and troop leaders.
If your child comes home from church, school, or a Boy Scout function acting different, there are some signs that could indicate abuse. It is important for parents to learn about abuse signs in order to get their children professional help. Some of the signs of child abuse include personality changes, loss of interest in something they were interested in, unexplained injuries and bruises, and anxiety going back to that location. These signs may indicate abuse, and parents should seek professional help from doctors and attorneys.
