steve: By cleverly including two references to earlier magazine articles, the organization is trying to dupe the secular authorities into concluding it did include clear information on how to keep themselves safe from predators.
But what an odd "game" for parents to play with their children - and no organizational guidance on what those scenarios should appropriately consist of.
The only ones being duped are themselves. The secular world doesn't buy their bullshit.
And yeah...it is an odd game. What is really bad about it is that if a case ever does make it into the legal arena, those "games" can be cast as activities that give suggestion to the child and corrupt evidence. I could see some defence lawyers trying to toss out the child's testimony by saying that the parents were leading the child to only think they had been molested, and that the questions set the child up to make up a story for attention - you know...play games.
*to add - imagine this line of questioning to the child "did your mommy or daddy tell you what to say?" and the child responding "yes...we played games so I knew what to say...we practised" and the lawyer saying to the judge "I move to have this testimony stricken on the grounds that it has been contaminated by the parents' suggestions."
Questioning small children about sex abuse has guidelines that most professionals try to diligently follow - some times, not questioning children properly has harmed both the evidence for court cases and the child involved. I can think of one notable and prominent case from my neck of the woods that had countless problems because of the way the children had been questioned. It was a horrible mess with far reaching consequences.
For Jehovah's Witness parents who are scared to report suspected abuse to elders, or don't know what to do...maybe scared that if they report it they will be shunned...here is an "out" that may help: take your kid to a child psychologist or counsellor. If there is mandatory reporting, then there is a chance that it will be taken out of your hands.
Which, of course, goes a long way to explain why the WT is so against outside professional help for mental health issues. And why the religion is so insular.
