Furthermore, when I viewed the school recently I was upset to see that the bathroom is down a long hall from her classroom and she is expected to go on her own whenever she needs to use the bathroom. But that bathroom is also shared with older kids. All my terrified mind can think of is what if one of the older kids molests her in the bathroom, and no one is there to help her? Or worse, what if one of the staff members comes upon her and rapes her? These fears keep me up at night. I know predators work in places where there are children. When I was a teenager I worked at a kids camp and one of the male coaches actually molested and raped 6 kids and was grooming many more before he got caught and arrested. These bastards seem to be everywhere where they can get access to children.
Am I crazy? Is my paranoia totally abnormal and the school bathroom issue? I wish I knew if anyone else felt that same way as me. I know I probably feel so worried about it happening because I was personally molested, but the fear of someone violating my daughter is making it hard for me to let her go anywhere without me.
On a side note, I also found out from the vet this afternoon that the family cat is dying from cancer. Then I returned home to find an invitation to a birthday party in my uncle's honor. I nearly threw up as I looked at it, before tearing it into a hundred pieces and throwing it in the garbage. I know my while blog is rather whiny today but my mood is just so bleak and dark I can't help it. Like I said, when it rains, it pours... :(/>
