Adult Behavior That May Signal Sexual Interest in Children Remember: Children are most often molested by someone they know, or whom the parent knows. Do you know an adult or child who...

  • Refuses to let a child set any of his or her own limits?

  • Insists on hugging, touching, kissing, tickling, wrestling with or holding a child even when the child does not want this affection?

  • Is overly interested in the sexuality of a particular child or teen (e.g., talks repeatedly about the child's developing body or interferes with normal teen dating)?

  • Manages to get time alone or insists on time alone with a child without interruptions?

  • Spends most of his/her spare time with children and has little interest in spending time with someone their own age?

  • Regularly offers to babysit many different children for free or takes children on overnight outings alone?

  • Buys children expensive gifts or gives them money for no apparent reason?

  • Frequently walks in on children/teens in the bathroom?

  • Allows children or teens to consistently get away with inappropriate behaviors?

  • Talks again and again about the sexual activities of children or teens?

  • Talks about sexual fantasies with children and is not clear about what's okay with children?

  • Encourages silence and secrets in a child?

  • Looks at child pornography?

  • Asks adult partners to dress or act like a child or teen during sexual activity?

  • Often has a "special" child friend, maybe a different one from year to year?

  • Spends most spare time on activities involving children or teens, not adults?

  • Makes fun of a child's body parts, calls a child sexual names such as "stud", "whore", or "slut"?
