"We cannot possibly imagine there are monsters out there that would do these types of things to our children," said Angie Aaron, a crisis counselor and educator with the Bluegrass Rape Crisis Center.

Aaron recently visited Madison Central High School to talk about sexual abuse, and she will give two presentations in March at Clark-Moores Middle School.
"We tailor the presentations to the audience," Aaron said.
For younger audiences, Aaron uses nonoffensive language to discuss bullying and "good touch/bad touch."When she talks to older students, Aaron said she talks about topics such as sexual harassment and date rape.
"We want to try to prevent it from happening in the first place," Aaron said."If it does happen it's good to have the education and resources to know what to do.If it doesn't happen to (a student), it might happen to a family member or a friend."
One out of every three women is sexually abused, Aaron said.One out of seven boys and one out of 33 men is sexually abused.
The biggest problem parents face in preventing abuse is pointing out potential perpetrators, Aaron said.
"It's heterosexual married men that do it," Aaron said."Parents tell children to watch out for strangers, but they don't warn them about Uncle Bob. (The perpetrator) is more likely to be someone they know," Aaron said.

"We definitely want to arm everyone with the resources," Aaron said.
There are many signs of child sexual abuse, and no single sign is definitive, Aaron said.
"Not just one of these by itself indicates sexual abuse," Aaron said."But it would be a cluster of these behaviors."
The signs include a child acting in the opposite of his or her normal behavior - either persistently acting out or becoming intensely introverted; persistent inappropriate sexual play with toys, animals or peers; detailed and unexplained sexual knowledge beyond age expectations; seductive precocious sexual behavior or gender confusion; aggressive sexual behavior; excessive persistent public masturbation; disturbances in eating patterns; disturbances in well-established toilet patterns; and a verbal statement from the child, among others.
While it is important to prevent abuse, if the act is committed then the abused person needs to know they are not at fault for what happened, Aaron said.
"If a child tells you, you need to keep calm," Aaron said.
Children can misinterpret a parent's anger as being directed toward the child, Aaron said.
"It's important to believe the child and let them know they are not responsible," Aaron said.
Parents should reinforce positive messages, Aaron said.They should tell the child they are proud the child told them about the incident.
"Parents need to respect the child's privacy and not discuss the abuse with anyone who doesn't need to know about it," Aaron said."They need to report the incident and get help.
"Parents should have an open dialogue so their children are comfortable," Aaron said.
