ABUSED BOYS ARE ABUSERS IN TURN: DOCS
Researchers say that boys who have been sexually assaulted by women, neglected by their mothers and who witnessed violence at home are more likely to become abusers themselves. The psychiatrist at the Institute of Child health said boys with identifiable risk factors were three times as likely as those without them to repeat the vicious cycle of abuse. The researchers, who reported their findings in The Lancet medical journal, said 12 percent of the abused boys in the study committed sexual offenses as adults and one-third had also been cruel to animals.
