Do kids who get raped at the age of 4-5 fail in their lives?

    I was abused as a kid - and betrayed by my mother as she lay naked beside the abuser watching him! It took nearly 20 years for the betrayal to hit home with me, only after I had my own child. I didn't 'fail' per se. I achieved highs at work - but I did have trouble with a 'normal' sex life. I never enjoyed sex as so many seem to. Don't know if it's because I had dud partners who only cared about their own sexual highs or if it was me. One thing I read once, about other people who were abused, that I totally agree with - is that I saw smutty things in the most innocent comments. I totally agree that being abused does take away the childhood innocence that is so vital to mental health.

    Well I was raped at age 11, 4 times and again age 12, 7 times I am now 25 and a Physician Assistant so no we don't ALWAYS fail, it is up to that individual! It made me push harder for what I wanted! I do not want kids or a relationship, but that is my preference!

    There probably are no statistics about that, as "fail in life" is hard to define.

    What I've seen myself is that people who were abused at a young age have a harder time enjoying life than I, and seem more likely to get addictions.
