Oliva: Help child sex assault victims
By Susan H. Oliva
Honor your children by being proactive and protective against sexual abuse. Listen and talk to your children about their interactions with teachers, coaches, and physicians.
“60 Minutes” recently interviewed three former United States gymnasts who openly discussed their allegations of sexual abuse against former USA Gymnastics doctor Lawrence Nassar.
Jeanette Antolin said she was victimized by Dr. Nassar many times between 1995 and 2000. When she realized she was being sexually assaulted she stated, “It was a light bulb going off (in her head), it just ruined me.”
This is a feeling shared by many sexual assault survivors.
