RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I needed to know about sexual abuse by the time I was six years old, but nothing was ever said to me about the subject by my parents (even when older.)
I wouldn't have needed to know much. At that age all I needed to know was that I had the right to say no to anyone touching me. Also, that if someone touched me, even so simple as a touch on the hand, and then told me to not tell my parents to tell my parents! Having that little bit of knowledge could have saved me from a painful childhood experiance.
