Perpetrators hold the most responsibility for child sexual abuse. Typically, they are older, are stronger, and can overcome the children’s resistance or take advantage of children’s socialization to obey older children. (Child Sexual Abuse. (2008). Perpetrators have many excuses and reasons why they way they are, such as “My wife won’t give me sex. I have to get it from somewhere” or “She loved me, and I loved her. This is love and not child sexual abuse.” Sometimes they have no excuses at all. (Child Sexual Abuse. (2008). They are fathers, mothers, stepfathers, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, cousins, babysitters, social workers, physicians, teachers, youth workers, or others who come in contact with children.
