It is very hard to understand why children who are sexually abused tend to not tell their own parents about the abuse they suffered. Watch this video to find out why children—even boys in the Boy Scouts—don’t disclose that they have been abused.

Most children who have suffered at the hands of abusers don’t tell anyone about the abuse. When they do reveal to someone that they have been sexually abused, the news is often delayed for days, weeks, and even years. The reason? Children who have been abused are often embarrassed, scared, or fear being believed or blamed for what happened. Unfortunately, their feelings of shame and humiliation often overcome their sense to tell someone. Sadly, children who are victims of Florida child abuse in the Boy Scouts are likely traumatized and have a difficult time processing what happened to them.

If your child discloses that he has been abused in the Boy Scouts, it is important to contact a skilled Sarasota child abuse lawyer immediately. An attorney can help guide you through the process and answer your questions. Call Mallard Perez for a free initial consultation at 888-409-3805 or contact us online at
