If any of you feel comfortable talking about it. Numbers only for the sake of privacy but how many children do you know of that have suffered some kind of sexual abuse under what would normally be deemed healthy circumstances. I mean things like, the parents of the children were vigilant, ect ect. Based on my experiences I have become admittedly paranoid about my own child. Most of it I consider healthy. For ex. whenever she does ballet, jazz ect. I sit outside the class within earshot. I don't let her spend the night with people who aren't relatives or considered relatives, and even then that doesn't mean that just because we are related that I trust you with my daughter's safety. My point is I don't feel even feel comfortable leaving her in the nursery to attend church service. When its time for kids Sunday school, I sit in the vacant classroom beside her within ear shot. I'm starting to get curious how many of you have kids or know kids that something has happened to under "good" "watchful" circumstances? My husband is starting to get concerned, but my daughter is only 3. She is not old enough to defend herself, and at 3 I don't believe there is a such thing as being "to concerned".
