There are some concerned about the victims of sexual abuse and have devoted themselves to help them heal. The are concerned about the individual and the fact that if individual are not being treated and helped, especially when they are young, what will happen to these people as they mature and become adults. This is similar to what was happening in the elementary schools years ago when the children were not actually prepared skill wise to move on the the next grade level but were moved ahead anyway as a social move.
If the abuse victims are ignored, they may take a turn for the worse and become an offender themselves as they reach maturity. Children with emotional and physical needs that are left untreated will often be the ones with the most repressed anger. They could be the first ones to be bullied yet turn around and start to bully some one else when they see that this behavior is condoned by the adult in authority. With their boundaries confused and no longer defined it is easy for them to be confused and take the wrong turn.
The child hood bully will eventually lead the way to the adult who is doing the harassing in the workplace. As an adult, he will marry and raise his children and continue the circle of abuse with his own wife and children. The statistics for the wife abuse goes up and then the child abuse begins. There are no good people and bad people. We all pay the price for the quality of the environment we allow for ourselves and our fellow human beings. There is an unspoken sadness in the air if even one precious child goes astray. we are that precious child no matter how old we are this year.
