Much of the information contained herein is based on our own online studies and interactions with pedophiles. Most figures contained within are listed by the most commonly accepted numbers and averages for sexual abuse, not any one particular study, as studies in this subject are inherently flawed and can provide conflicting results. The subject of sexual abuse is a widely contested subject, and we encourage all parents who would like more information to do as much research as they can. There are a variety of resources available on the web and in your local library. The more you learn, the more I’m sure you will agree with our methods and techniques, and the more you will begin to understand the realities of child molestation.
