Dear MizzB

My 15-year-old daughter survived being sexually molested at creche by her teacher’s 20-year-old son when she was six.

My problem is that now she is rebellious and I fear she may be sexually active as she disappears on weekends.

When I look for her, I find her drunk or passed out with boys.

What can I do to protect my little girl?

Dear Daddy

Sexual molestation steals a girl’s sense of self-worth and this could lead to her looking for acceptance from negative peer activities.

I applaud you for supporting her. It is wise to seek professional help so she can learn better skills to cope with her negative feelings, and some self-acceptance.

She has survived trauma and it is important for her to be taught her physical value so she understands she is no longer a victim.

She can now redefine herself as a survivor.
