As per People, John Stamos said how it took him writing a book to realize that what the babysitter allegedly did was not appropriate. “I mean, I knew, it was always in the back, and I do so much advocacy for the [survivors]. I felt like, I remembered it slightly. It has always been there, but I packed it away as people do, right?” He said.

John Stamos, at the time, chose to remain quiet about this incident as he thought, “I think I told myself, like, ‘Ah, it’s girls, man.'” He added, “It was like you’re playing dead so they’ll stop. But it wasn’t totally aggressive,” he recalls. “I don’t know, it was not good.”

He was once awarded for his advocacy of abused children. John Stamos first reflected on his dark past while writing the acceptance speech for the same. “I started to write it, and that’s when it really came out. And then I thought, ‘No, tonight is not about me. It’s about the kids. I’m going to pack it away again until the right moment,'” he continues. “Otherwise, I’m a phony f—. It’s like, ‘Come on.'”

“I didn’t want the headlines to be that, and I didn’t want the book to be over that,” John Stamos explains. “It was a page or something, but I felt I had to talk about it. It was weird. It was something that, I think, I was probably like 10 or 11 [when it happened]. I shouldn’t have had to deal with those feelings.”
