||The number of children who will be sexually abused this year is staggering. One out of five will be a boy. He will be betrayed and abused by those he has learned to trust. He will use defensive mechanisms to help him survive the abuse. He will physically grow, but various psychological and emotional parts of him will be stunted.
Flash forward 30 years later and the defensive and coping techniques used during his childhood to survive the abuse have become his worst enemy. He's spirally downward into vices like anger, depression, promiscuity, same-sex attraction, suicidal thoughts, familial conflict, losing his faith, becoming a workaholic, addicted to pornography, drugs and alcohol. It is the rotten seed of childhood sexual abuse growing and blooming chaos in his life.
