    Sexual abuse is any sexual act with a child by an adult or older child. This includes fondling, penetration, incest, rape, sodomy, indecent exposure, and using the child for prostitution or producing pornographic materials. Research shows that 1 in 4 females and 1 in 6 males are subjected to some forms of sexual abuse before they reached the age of 18. Consider the possibility of sexual abuse when the child suddenly refuses to participate in physical activities or to change for gym, reports nightmares or bedwetting, has difficulty walking or sitting, becomes pregnant or contracts a venereal disease particularly if under age 14.
