My almost 15 year old was sexually assaulted by her best friend about two weeks ago. She told me the night it happened; the next day we contacted the police, went to the hospital....did all this thing we are supposed to do.
Then, less then a week later I was checking her activity on her phone (to see if he has contacted her) to find that she was talking to him. When I confront her on it, she tells me that she believes he wont do it again, and that she doesn't want to lose him as a friend.
I've talked with sexual assualt people, and they say its pretty normal...I don't know what to do. My heart literally hurts right now. I am her aunt, and legal guardian, I've had her for almost 9 years. I feel like I am watching her stand on a cliff....
I can't force her to get help. I need some words of advice...some help. I don't want to lose her trust, but as a parent I want to protect her...
