Poison Ivy

Yes. My eldest brother sexual abused me for a while when he was 12 and I was 3. When I told my parents something that led to them figuring out things weren’t quite right, they didn’t allow him to be alone with me anymore.

Without that intervention, we would both be so much more damaged now. Appropriate adult supervision does not harm children. It shields them from harm.
