W Children who keep the secret of abuse to themselves will often make up for their silence by behaving differently. Common signs and symptoms of abuse include: Falling grades or lower-than-expected academic achievement at school. Frequent fights at school or with friends. Withdrawal into themselves, quietness, social isolation, especially among children who are normally outgoing. Loss of interest in favorite activities, hobbies, sports. Sudden changes in normal behavior. Unexplained fears of certain places, people or situations. Nightmares, bad dreams and frequent fearful awakenings at night, especially in young children. Unusual interest in or knowledge of sexual matters. CONTINUED FROM PAGE E l ior, McKee says. Making assumptions, or blaming the child without all the facts, will only make the child clam up, she says. Instead of demanding answers, tell the child you're concerned and want to know if everything is okay. Tell the child about the changes you have noticed, and ask if there's anything the child wants to discuss. Even if the child refuses to talk initially, let the child know an adult will always be willing to listen, Mangold says. Anger a mistake When children do open up, many parents make the mistake of getting angry. ; Because many instances of abuse include threats by the abuser, children whose parents react with threats of their own may quit talking, or later deny the abuse as a way to avoid a confrontation. ". Keep the focus on the child.

Parents need to let them know that good people can do bad things, and that the child will not be punished or blamed because of what someone else did. Parents need help Responsible parents will find a counselor or mental health professional for the child and, if necessary, for themselves, says McKee. "If the parents can't deal with their own emotions, how can they be there for a child?" she asks. Parents may find themselves of confirming belief in the child and of laying blame on the offender. "It's hard, but it's also somebody's obligation to do it, McKee says. "If the perpetrator gets by with it once and if there are no conse LjgaT quences, they're going to get by with it again. Duette.
