Strangers not the greatest danger in child sexual abuse

A vast majority of children who are sexually abused are done so by someone they know - most often a family member, an adult the family trusts or, in some instances, another child, a new study has revealed.
According to numbers provided by the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse, parents generally teach their children about "stranger danger" from an early age, telling them not to talk to, walk with or take gifts or candy from strangers, but statistics show danger often lurks closer to home.
Parents can help protect their children from sexual abuse by talking frankly to them about abuse, starting at a young age with age-appropriate information.
