About 7 years ago, I walked in on my younger brother, who was about 12 at the time, with his hand up my 6 yo daughters dress. I freaked out, yelled at him, told my parents, and left their house. We told the child protective services who suggested counseling after their investigations, and from that point on, we never let the two of them be alone together again. Now, my duaghter is almost 14 and has been acting out very sexually, and I've asked her if more ever happened between her and my brother that I should know about? She firmly says no and carries on, but why is she so sexual? What do you think and what should I do?Answer Question

Based on what I know from dealing with people very close to me in life and all of the subsequesnt research I have done, I don't ever think there is an incidence of molestation too small, to create life changing effects. Not everyone responds the same way, some because of temperament and personality are sometimes even more sensitive and susceptible to negative effects. There is no way to know for sure, without having your daughter go through some counseling. People who were never touched, but exposed to inappropriate things (nudity, others engaging in sex, porn) or those who are victims of "emotional incest" When I a parent Cont'd

treats a child like a spouse or lover in every way such as how they talk to them, sharing intimate adult details, etc. can develope problems similar to the kind that people who were molested develope. I'm only saying this because they are possiblities. I don't ever think therapy can hurt. I would take her to a therapist that specializes in dealing with female molestation victims; an expert will be able to tell pretty easily if this is just her emerging sexuality or a symptom of unresloved abuse issues. I wish you all the best. I hope that helps, somewhat.
