I do understand that he is only 9... I may have reacted differently if he was a teenager. I did find out that the 9yo was molested when he was 2 or 3 years old. He has also been to a psychiatrist for this. I have never had any issues with my son about this. Thanks for any suggestions....

Let your heart be your guide. Children seldom make this up. If in fact this little boy is dealing with abuse recovery it's time to share with his parents. Always validate your children. Explain you are sorry this happened to him. Make sure he knows he did the right thing telling mommy. Remind him that NO ONE ever is to touch his bathing suit areas. This is not a Crucifixion of this 9 year old but a lesson early for your son about appropriate touching. Good luck sweetie. Use this incident to teach your baby this is never okay, Believe him, always!

So if it is true that the 9yo cousin is molesting your 4yo son. You would still let him stay over and keep molesting your son just because you don't want to make the cousin feel bad???
I just would not invite him over any more. If I had to let him stay over. My son would sleep with me. The cousin would never be left alone with my som. Just in case it did happen.
