Escalating red flags in an adult’s behavior

In most abuse cases, the victim knows the offender. Offenders go to great lengths to ensure that they are not strangers, often spending months or even years hiding in plain sight. Parents should be aware of a few red flags that range from obvious to subtle, and usually indicate a more sinister relationship at work between an offender and potential victims. Some obvious signs include telling children dirty jokes or showing them pornography. More subtle signs could be an adult who wrestles or tickles often, wants to be alone with children, gives gifts frequently, or encourages children to keep secrets. For more red flags, request a copy of the VIRTUS® article “The Rationale of Warning Signs” at lacatholics.org/did-you-know. Read the VIRTUS article “The Rationale of Warning Signs” here.
