As far as I am aware, I have not personally provided psychotherapy to people who have molested children.
However, I have heard a lot about perpetrators from victims. It’s challenging to be compassionate after hearing those stories.
My wife has read much more than me on this topic, and she provided me with that info about a common characteristic of the mothers of people who molest children.
It makes sense to me. The reason that it’s not fathers is that the mother is usually the primary, and therefore most intimate, caregiver.
As I said, it’s a commonly observed characteristic, but we cannot determine causality.
