Why Do Children Feel Guilty When They Are Victims of Abuse?


Children who are subject to sexual abuse do not find it easy to open up & talk abut it. This may be because they have a very real fear that if they talk about the abuse, they will be judged for it. This may also be because they have been groomed by the perpetrators into believing that they are in a relationship of ‘love’ with each other. Children are afraid that they may lose this ‘love’ if they speak up about the abuse.
