Child Sexual Abusers! Joel’s Story





Children Series Part  2 [8+]


Uncle Joe was his favourite amongst his relatives. He buys biscuits, sweets and lovely things for Joel. Each time Uncle Joe comes to Joel’s house, he always wants to stay alone in the room with him. One day, Uncle Joe touched Joel all over his body. He thought he was just showing him how much he cares. Later, Uncle Joe started touching his crotch.  Joel became uncomfortable. But Uncle Joe threatened not to buy anything for him if he tells anyone about the touch. Joel did not want his uncle to stop buying all the lovely things, so he never told anyone, until he was taught in the church about sexual abuse.








I bet you are eager to know who can abuse any child. They are called Child Sexual Abusers. They are offenders because their behaviour is against the law.

Who then are Child Sexual Abusers?





Child Sexual Abusers could be anyone! Surprised? Yes, anyone. It could be:

  • An older boy or girl.
  • A teenager or even your age mate
  • An adult (Male or Female)
  • A neighbour (people that live around you)
  • Someone you love, trust and care about)
  • People you live with.
  • Someone you always love to play with.
  • A stranger (someone you don’t know)
  • A member of your family (uncle, cousin, aunty, nephew, niece, parents, step-parents, grand-parents).
  • A family friend (a friend of your parents, brother or sister’s friends).
  • School teacher, lesson teacher, coach, swimming instructors, football coach, nanny, etc).
  • A clergy (religious leader).
  • A landlord (the owner of the house you live in)
  • Domestic workers such as House-help (boy or girl), Driver, Gateman, Cook, Gardener).
  • Anybody! Male or Female

However, not all adults are child sexual abusers. Most of them are good, and they genuinely love and care for you. But if you are not too sure about an adult, trust your feelings!
