Heart-wrenching videos bring attention to abuse by family members

[Trigger Warning]

One of the most horrifying, and under-reported forms of child sexual abuse, is abuse by a family member. It is almost impossible to get exact statistics but research has shown that 90 – 95% of child victims know their abuser  and that 35% or more are family members.

These video, which were produced in Mexico, highlight how hard it can be to detect abuse by a family member and how little it is discussed.

(The 80% statistic at the end may be true for Mexico but is not backed up by research in the United States)
