Introduction: The peril of abusing children sexually has turned out to be an inclusive disquiet in latest era. More than a few countries parliamentary section continue reviewing the actual punishment(s) intended for the offenders. Regardless of these hard works, the incidence of sexual exploitation of children is still apparent. Then, what are the factors responsible for the rate of this collective crisis? Hence, this study critically assessed the determinants of Child Sexual Abuse (CSA). Methods: Critical reassessment of empirical studies on the dominant factors of Child Sexual Abuse. Results: findings showed that the parenting deficiencies (parents living in severance, parents smoking or consuming alcohol non-stop, coming home lately after the close of work, pitiable bond with children and children that are in want for parental care at certain age), frightening surroundings (apprehensive children due to apparent insecure surroundings, unnecessary advances from neighbourhood, other forms parental complications and awful control from peers) and influence of social media (regular contact with social media). This study recommends preventative channel by firstly; tackling parenting deficiencies by parents themselves will go a long way in curbing the negative situation of child sexual exploitation. In addition, government should pilot the way in environmental protection by formulating and adopting policies that will improve security and safety in the society and children should be well-informed at home, school and religious centres on divulging unnecessary advances and prevention of social media that encourage wrong sexual activities and behaviour.
