Things abusers say to keep children silent

Today I’m sharing five things the abuser would say to me that scared me enough to not tell anyone I was being sexually abused at home. It has been a surprisingly difficult video for me to make, but I think it’s important for everyone to understand why children don’t tell us. For this, and for prevention in general, we need to look at more than symptoms.. we need to delve into the dynamic that the abuser creates with the child.
