I watched this some time ago now. His parents were JUST like Roadrunner's, very caring and attentive, but totally naive about the notion that boys could be sexually abused.

Exactly Alan. In our neighborhood I don't think any adult imagined that something like child abuse could ever happen. As my Dad told me after I disclosed to him, back then if you volunteered to help with the church or the Scout troop, well, you were automatically a good guy and worth trusting.

I just hope that parents today understand that CSA does happen and it could happen to their kids.

Mom was thrilled her son was getting special attention from the parish priest. The 70's and 80's were the hight of how wounderfull it would be for a devout parent or single mother to maybe possible have there son be a priest. Amazing how blind a parent could be because of the trust that goes with certian titles(priest, Cub Scout leader etc...) the movie sucked for me but should be manditory for all parents or expecting parents. Dont trust anyone!!! We show our kids sex ed videos in school on how to properly wear a condom but we dont prepare the parents on what scum there is out there and how they work. mvnforwrd
