When Children Sexually Abuse Other Children

Recently the media exposed sexual abuse that occurred in the Duggar family, famous for their TLC show 19 Kids and Counting. Their oldest son, Josh, inappropriately touched four of his younger sisters and a family friend in 2002 and 2003. The media reports that Josh, age 12-14 during this time, went into his sisters' rooms in the night and touched them "inappropriately" both over and under their clothing and blankets while they were sleeping.
