Sexual and physical abuse of children is not as uncommon as we might wish to think. There are no reliable statistics because so often the abused child is too afraid and too ashamed to report it. Recovery from sexual and physical abuse is usually a slow process. It involves therapy and being around people who truly care about you. It also helps to have friends who understand what you're going through and who will listen, give you sincere advice and let you know that you are not alone. If you have been abused as a child or know someone who has, please seek help.
