Remember……awareness is the key!!!
Many times we attribute hormones to the unexplainable behavior of young ladies. However, we need to be mindful that there may be much deeper issues at work. Depression, bouts of anger and violence, engaging in sexual behavior (incl. promiscuity and prostitution), eating disorders, disconnecting from friends, families, and interests, are all possible signs that a young girl has or is experiencing sexual abuse. If you notice these behaviors, be diligent in getting to the bottom of the problem and consider counseling. Even if sexual abuse isn’t the issue, there is something going on and it shouldn’t be ignored or overlooked.
