In this article, Dr. Boyce Watkins explains why the trial of former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky is a reminder to parents that they should be careful about who they allow to come around their kids. The message is targeted primarily to single mothers who date men without knowing their motives or their s****l history.
Jerry Sandusky ran a youth charity and many of the kids in the charity were black. In the course of “mentoring” the kids, Sandusky molested quite a few of them. The case was eventually unearthed years later, but officials at Penn State University may be facing charges for covering up the s****l abuse for many years.
When I was a youth track coach a decade ago, I found that running with the kids everyday was like a fountain of youth. The experience transformed me for life, and was one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done. The parents loved me, and I loved (most of) them. But I must confess years later that I look back and find myself shocked at how so many of these parents (especially single moms) trusted a grown man around their children.
