In the past couple months I feel like I've been seeing Monster Family's car everywhere we go.  I've attempted to figure out what I feel when I see the car and I haven't been able to specifically tap into sadness pain fear anger I just simply see...

    Can't let it go

    About 2 years ago it was discovered that my daughter was being sexually molested. I worry and struggle on a daily basis as I see her trying to fit in and be a "normal" kid...but it's tough for her. There is, besides the family therapist, no oneto talk to.

    Losing friends/support

    I just really need to vent. I come from a Christian background and most of my friends are. Since my daughter disclosed what my husband has done to her I have lost all faith. It makes me angry when people tell me God had a plan for her life and I should pray for this or that..... In my mind there's what kind of sadistic God that could pre plan my daughter to be repeatedly raped by her step dad at...

    Why you need a therapist of your own

    5
    PARENTS of survivor children need professional mental health care TOO because: 1.) You deserve a local, compassionate, objective listener who understands that disclosure is just the beginning of a very long journey for parents. You deserve to have a listener who is prepared to devote almost a whole hour every week just to hearing you out, and helping you to connect your thoughts, and helping you...

    Hi All...I hope you're not too upset that I've invaded your group- I am not a parent, but actually an adult survivor of childhood incest, and I could REALLY use some help!I fear my mother has gone through the motions of healing over the years, but hasn’t actually HEALED.I am a firm believer that parents/siblings of childhood sexual abuse victims are actually “secondary victims,” that often...

There is a tween-aged kid with Asperger's Syndrome who is usually at church every Sunday. Yesterday, I caught him peeking in the bathroom while his best friend was using the facility. I gave him a pretty good scolding, but since his friend didn't seem especially...
