Sexual Abusers of Children
Sexual Abusers of Children Are Commonly Known As...
Child Molesters
Pedophiles
Sexual Predators
Child Abusers
Child Rapists
Perpetrators

Bottom Line...

Regardless of what you call them,
they are those who prey on and harm innocent children of all ages.
To Sexual Abusers of Children...
"Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight.
Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to whom we must give account."  
(Hebrews 4:13)

"But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have
a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea"
(Matthew 18:6)
Why Adults (and even older Children) Sexually Abuse Children...
Contributing Factors that may come into play... Why the Sexual Abuse of Children happens... This is not an all inclusive list & some of the reasons may overlap...

  • Sexual Desire of Children

  • Some Simply Mean Harm

  • Control/Dominance/Power

  • Learned Behavior
  • Confusion
  • Inappropriate/No Boundaries

  • Influence of Drugs, Alcohol and/or Pornography

We believe the Primary Factors are...
                                                                                Control/Dominance/Power
                                                                                                              &
                                          Learned Behavior, Confusion & Inappropriate/No Boundaries

Clarification... We know without any doubt that not all who were sexually abused as children will grow up & sexually abuse children.  However, we feel strongly that
most Sexual Abusers of Children were they themselves abused.

God created us in His image & loves us enough that He gives us the right to Choose... to make choices in life.  When someone sexually abuses a child, their horrible
(unthinkable to most) choice harms an innocent child leaving lifelong scars.
The Typical Abuser...
"Notoriously friendly, nice, kind, engaging and likeable."

"Target their victims, often insinuating themselves into that child’s life – their family, school, house of worship, sports and hobbies."

"Professional con artists and are expert at getting children and families to trust them."

"Will smile at you, look you right in the eye and make you believe they are trustworthy."

[According to Child Lures Prevention @ www.childluresprevention.com]
The Abuser's Strategy...
"Affection Lure... Most victims are “groomed” over a period of weeks, months or years.
Used both offline and online to seduce unsuspecting youngsters in need of love and attention."

"Repeated Comment from Child Molesters... "When there’s a Physically or Emotionally absent parent in the picture,
it makes the child more vulnerable than ever.' "

According to Child Lures Prevention @ www.childluresprevention.com

Sexual Abusers May Be...
Upstanding Citizens
and/or
Very Child-Like & Immature Individuals
By knowing all the reasons Why Most Children Will More Than Likely Not Tell Anyone (Be sure to Click on
Signs & Symptoms for more information).  Sexual Predators (Child Molesters & Pedophiles alike) are likely
to use some or all of the following methods...

  • Dominance
  • Intimidation
  • Manipulation
  • Threats
  • Instilling Fear

  • Gain Child's Trust and/or Love
  • Playing on Emotional Needs of Child
  • Displaying Affection & Care
  • Offering Gifts
  • Playing Games & Being Fun

  • Brainwashing (aka Mind Control)
  • Etc...
How Do  Sexual Predators Silence Children...
The lack of
decision-making skills,
knowledge and abilities of
a Child (meaning Birth to
17 Years of Age) is what
Sexual Predators take
advantage of.
