My family and I have reason to believe that another family we are close with may have sexual abuse going on in the home against one of the minor daughters. The mother was confronted by the daughter a few years ago for "allowing it to happen." The daughter said she was lying after the mother cried all day that her family would be ruined. The eldest son was upset with the father yesterday and told him "Well I think you've touched my sister!" The father won't answer his phone now.
I don't know their contact info but my mom and sister do. Otherwise I would have called CPS to investigate. So I told my mom to call CPS otherwise she is just as guilty as the father for the abuse and the mother for letting it happen just to keep her "family" in tact. My mom said "But that is a serious allegation!" I think that's exactly why authorities need to investigate.
What would you do?
