Section 1 A special message to parents Knowledge is the best weapon in protecting your children, but without your personal responsibility and application it is not much use. In one circumstance, when a certain child was molested the parentswere not knowledgeable or responsible at all. An adult babysitter was watching the child. The child's parents did not know that when the babysitter went out she would leave it up to her son to watch their child. They did not know this person and it turned out that he was molesting and abusing the child for many months. By the grace of God, the child had counseling and treatment, which provided a lotof understanding and healing, which prevented further abuse. We believe that the reason why wisdom and healing is poured out is so that healing and education can be weapons in the fight against sexual molestation. Parents watch your children. Please know their friends and their friend’s families. Know who your child is with. Do not be ashamed to ask your children from time to time about theirfriendships and relationships with others. Please make sure you have phone numbers and addresses of who your children are with. Pray for protection.

(This attracts the potential abuser and also gives an indication that the child is not responsible with their body) EX: The pants being worn down off the hips so that their underwear or boxers are showing.
3) A child that has had their father leave and there is little or nocontact. (Keeping in mind that abusers can be male or female, the stats show that the majority are male this is because they understand that a male or female child will be longing to have male attention and emotional connection, the abuser will use those emotions against the child.) 4) A child that has much freedom in their neighborhood for large amounts of time without the parents knowing their...
