In Carson, California the unthinkable has happened, sexual abuse between preschoolers. A preschool is closing after parents found out that a 5-year-old female classmate allegedly had been sexually abusing some of her 4-year-old male classmates. It is sickening when you hear of an adult molesting a child but it is heartbreaking when you hear of a small child molesting other children.
Students in the preschool class at the First Lutheran Church of Carson School would engage in oral sex during naptime, in the tunnel slide on the playground and in an outside bathroom. What the fuck is going on?
No one was watching these children. The very thing we expect to be taking place when we leave our children in the care of preschool was not. When the kids were supposed to be napping, the aides ( who were left in charge by the teachers) would nap and the kids were molesting their classmates.
A lawsuit is being filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court against the school, the church, the principal, the teacher and an alleged child perpetrator.
Richard McCarthy, a father of one of the 4-year-old victims, says that his son often received oral sex from a 5-year-old girl at school. What the hell happened to this poor little girl that she not only knows what oral sex is but that she is performing oral sex on children smaller than her? My guess? Someone older than her has been abusing her and now she has become the abuser.
Much like these little boys who have experienced ejaculation and the sensation that comes with sexual arousal now know those feelings and will be seeking out those feelings of pleasure. Has she turned them into predators? This is the same thing these parents of the victims are wondering and are having a very hard time putting their children into other schools because they don’t want to be responsible for letting a predator loose on other small children. This is a repugnant circle of molestation.
These victims have been sexualized at such a young age, how do they recover and progress normally from here? We leave our children in these places( preschools, daycares, with sitters) and we try to choose wisely. We think that by choosing a parochial school these teachers and the people who work there are good people but that is not always the case. We expect them to pay attention to our children when they are in their care. How could this be going on for so long and no one knew anything?
I am so sickened by this case that I want to scream and pull my children out of school. Who can we trust? Nobody. Our job is to protect our children from all the pain and hurt and bad things of the world, but how can we protect them from those who we would expect to be innocent? We can’t be with our children 24 hours of the day, we do our best and we hope that others are doing their part to raise, care for and love their own children; that they are protecting their children and then when our guard is down, our children become victims of other victims. How do we protect them all from that?
I hope they catch the asshole who has molested this little girl and when they do, I hope they charge him or her with any charges of molestation brought up against this 5-year-old little girl victim who has become the predator.
What would you do if you found out there was sexual abuse between preschoolers going on at your child’s school?
