how incest is defined

how sexual abuse of children is defined

why incest offenders “do it.”

why victims don’t tell

whether/how to foster a better relationship between perpetrator and victim

how to counter thinking errors

what’s age-appropriate curiosity versus sexual abuse?

how parents should respond to their child’s flirtatiousness

how responsible are some children for their abuse

factors in degree of damage incurred

the role of guilt

what about one’s own sexual abuse?

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 83 now.
