Dr Larry Nassar duped parents too: How parents can be alert to child sex abuse

Dr. Larry Nassar abused hundreds of girls for years. Strong girls, athletes, with involved and caring parents. How could the parents not have known? How could they have dismissed their daughter’s concerns or anxiety about seeing Dr Nassar if she expressed it?

Larry Nassar isn’t alone. He is the charming neighbor or uncle or teacher or priest or coach. He is the person who is helping and hurting at the same time. He gains your trust while he hurts your child.

NP Lori and Dr Molly talk about how parents get duped and how to listen more closely to your children even when the person they are discussing is someone you love and trust.
