Boz Tchividjian – a former child abuse chief prosecutor and the founder/director of GRACE – expounds upon five of the most common characteristics of child predators (linked above):

1. Offenders may have many victims.

2. Offenders can be the most unsuspected people.

3. Offenders are not strangers.

4. Offenders often prey upon trusting and vulnerable young people.

5. Offenders minimize their criminal actions [i.e. victimize themselves].

    I love my little grandchildren more than life itself. They are, God’s gifts to me. If there is any way to protect their sweet innocence forever and a day, I will do so. I’m asking others to please be aware. Save all of the little children. Your own, the next door neighbors, the girls and boys kicking balls in the street. Watch out for them. Do not be afraid to tell someone when eyes or instincts see something not quite right.
