Hi, I hope I can help you. If a child is being sexually abused, obviously, the poor child will not speak up. If you are close to a child who you personally think is being sexually abused, you have to tell the child that they are not alone and that they can tell you anything. But please do NOT jump to conclusions and do NOT say anything unless you are very sure about it. A child who is being sexually abused may act jumpy or a bit frightened. They might like to spend time alone, a sign of depression. They might not to things which an ordinary child does, and they might act or sound weird. Please be sure about what you do and your actions, because remember, this is just advice. If you want to seek more professional advice, get help. Good Luck :) PS: Do NOT jump to conclusions


If the child is upset when left with the father or has a hard time readjusting to being back at home, it may be normal behavior to changes in environment. Urinary infections may be caused by inappropriate contact, but that is not the only cause. If the child acts out sexually beyond its age, visit your pediatrician for advice. If possible - without accusations - kept an eye out during visits, particularly if the child is reluctant. No one should have more physical contact than they are comfortable with, even if it is a hug, or sitting on a lap.

Is it normal for a child of a verbally abusive father to grow up with the mentality of Honesty Is Not Always If Ever The Best Policy when dealing with authority figures other than his abusive father?

Yes, it is normal with some children who grow up with a verbally abusive father to think that honesty is not always if ever the best police when dealing with authority figures other than his own father because a verbally abusive father has life twisted around in his own mind. A child that is either verbally or physically abused by their father will most likely try to please that father more so than the father. However, there are other children who grow up with verbally abusive fathers who make an extreme effort to be the opposite of their father and when those grown children have children of their own they make sure their children will not have to go through the same thing they went through.

What are my chances of getting my child back from father if he is abusive?

Your ex has no greater chance of keeping your child due to his abusive behavior. If you can document his abuse of your child, you might be able to limit his access to your child. Look to local domestic violence resources for help in accessing the legal systems. Expect a fight. It won't be cheap.
