National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse

National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse

Some Child Abuse Statistics that will shock you as when you see them in writing it suddenly becomes very real but sadly they are statistics that you all need to be aware of .The first group of numbers below deal with the childhood sexual abuse figures only. Imagine how bad they’d be if we added in the kids who experience violence, neglect and the emotional trauma that results from growing up in a severely dysfunctional family !! We give you some sense of that below.

Statistics only come from reporting, so we don’t have accurate, objective numbers. A lot of child sex abuse and violence is never known. But the statistics we use are not our own. Updated regularly they come from the most reputable official reports, and include information from the most reliable federal government organizations, well-established non profit groups and the best scientific and educational sources we can find.

The numbers are all absolutely astonishing!

Based on the reports we have, it’s conservatively believed that in today’s society 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys WILL BE sexually molested before they are 18 years old — which means 1 in 5 of America’s youth, or fully 20% to 25% of the population !!

In addition, as we mentioned we’re concerned here at NAASCA with helping stop ALL kinds of child abuse, including sexual abuse, violence, emotional trauma and neglect, and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) believes that close to 50% of our youth will experience at least one
of these.

So please as the summer is now here and the kids are out or at home more than usual,please please open those eyes and watch for anything that you think may not be correct.It is far better to offer help and it not to be needed than to have had a child need help and nobody there to offer it .Please check out our website for more detailed information as this is literally a fraction of the statistics out there and we need you all to be aware of how bad child abuse is in our communities and nobody and no community is exempt
