Pedophilia is at an all time high, not just in the United States but all over the world. Pornography has been proven to be addictive. Just like drugs, it begins to require more and more "exciting" porn to satisfy the addict. This is one reason there has been such a quick spread of child porn.

Law enforcement was unaware of what was going on, pedophiles, world-wide, began to organize on the internet. They could trade photos and videos of children being molested and violently raped, with normal people being none the wiser.

One of their main goals is to convince the public that pedophilia is completely normal, thus they need the child porn to feed their needs so they don't have to molest. WHAT??? Every time a photo or a vid of a child being molested or raped is viewed by these perverts, that child is victimized all over again.

Here's a few things that may shock you:
A misconception is that having been a victim of molestation will make you a pedophile. NOT SO. If that was true, most pedophiles would be women. There are very few women who molest children.

There are over 400,000 registered sex offenders in the United States and an estimated 100,000 are missing. They're supposed to be registered but nobody knows where they are or where they're living.

The most serious and chronic offenders often show signs of antisocial behavior as early as the preschool years. Your typical molester is a male who has already started offending by the time he's 15. He has other deviant behaviors and already has molested an average of 117 children, most of whom do not report the offense.

The average pedophile molests 260 victims during their lifetime. Over 90% of convicted pedophiles are arrested again for the same offense after their release from prison.

My hat's off to the media who has been showing photos of pedophiles when they're arrested. We need to see who they are. But your children are in danger from the ones you don't see.

It's a shame that it's come to the point where we have to suspect teachers, coaches, Boy Scout leaders, Pastors, Youth leaders and even the nice man next door.

As a private investigator, most of my cases were trying to prove a child, who was too young to testify, had been molested.  You know where I started? Back when they were in high school. I would interview the girls they went to school with. Then I'd find out if their relatives refused to let their own children  be around the suspect. The next thing was to find out how involved they were with pornography and what kinds. If they are a pedophiles, they will usually have at least one other deviant behavior.

When I was on staff with Perverted Justice, catching online pedophiles, we would always be hit with the same questions, in the same order, from the pedophiles. They believed we were anywhere from 10 to 13 years old. We always joked about they just have read the pedophiles handbook. Turned out that wasn't so funny, when we learned from the FBI there really was a Pedophiles Handbook.

People always teach their children about "Stranger Danger", but many of these perverts aren't strangers. They're either relatives or a boyfriend, a coach, a teacher or someone else the child would see as a friend or an authority. Pedophiles will try to get into jobs where they have contact with children of whatever age they prefer.

What I hope to do with this blog is educate  how to teach your children and yourself. You don't have to be a detective to spot something that's not quite right. Listen to your gut feelings.

Be proactive. Keep track of who is on the registered sex offender list in your area and who has disappeared. If you know what they look like, you might be able to spot them and turn them in to police.

Warn your children that if ANYONE touches their genitals, they should tell you immediately. Sometimes a pedophile will test the waters by "accidentally" brushing up against a child's genitals or butt Let your child know they MUST tell you even if it was an accident.  If the nice man next door tries really hard to talk and act like the kids, beware. It could be him saying "See, I'm just like you."

If someone is giving your child gifts or money, stay alert. He could very well be grooming them. If he keeps offering to help you out by keeping them for you, or taking them places, stay alert. He could be grooming YOU so you'll trust him.
