Lack of Parenting and Victim Psychology: “When a young girl is abused & neglected at home, she feels alone and isolates, as she perceives that she is unworthy of support or care. She learns to dissociate from her thoughts and discomfort, and that (lack of attention to her self and to what she needs) makes her an easy target for a perpetrator.
An 11-year-old child must NEVER be blamed for abuse by an adult, or anyone of a disparate age. This causes further trauma and damage to the victim. Any judgement as to how a person looks is just that. Girls are physiologically developing earlier than ever before. A cute dress or make-up does not cause the observer to act inappropriately. Faulty thinking and behavior does! Perpetrators of violence need to be held accountable for their actions and the harm they cause their victims. In some cases a victims parents should be held responsible, as well.
Parents that do not make time to care for their children, who don't naturally love them and want to ensure their safety should not be allowed to keep them, and perhaps shouldn't have had them in the first place.
Interpersonal, socio-relational education has to begin at a very young age. A lack of love, support & awareness causes 'non-parents' like these (of both victims & perpetrators) to breed future problems.”
