Hi Castle - two weeks ago I sat down and told my daughter, my wife was with me to provide support, my daughter is 20 and is a teacher at what we call a primary school over here so it's 5 to 8 year olds, she has a huge amount of empathy working with kids and I have to say that it went really well, we didn't talk about details just that I'd been the victim of CSA as a kid. She gave me a hug and told me that she was here for me if I needed to talk about it, did I cry.

She tells me that 2 of her friends have been victims and have talked to her about it in the past.

You sound like a really caring Dad Castle, your kids are very lucky
