Duck Dynasty’s Jep Robertson Says He Was Sexually Molested as a Child

Sadly, lots of kids go through this type of situation when they are young. Lots of instances are not reported either because young children don’t have anyone they feel safe to talk to (parents, watch your attitudes around touch and the body) nor do kids know what to say because these topics have NOT BEEN ADDRESSED. His absences and desire to avoid school/the bus are typical responses and could have been a point for a parent/responsible adult to inquire. Then they could take the opportunity to 1) remove his shame, 2) support him that he did nothing wrong AND 3) that with their support he could stand up to the girl and tell her she did not have his permission to touch his body.
