The Voices Of & For Parenting Surivors

Seeking Survivor Dads

Dawn and I are very excited to be asked to create a resource document for parent survivors by an organization that works to prevent childhood sexual abuse. We have been asked to write about how to deal with the triggers and general anxiety of becoming a parent, being a survivor of abuse. And since we are both moms, we could really use some help here to make sure that we include information that is also relevant for survivor dads. What would be really helpful is just a bullet-point list of fears and triggers, broken down by the following ages & stages:


-infancy/toddler years

-childhood-teen years

If you would be willing to write a brief summary of your top1-3 concerns during these periods, you would be helping a lot of other survivors out. Please send submissions to

Thank you!
