  • There are too many signs of sexual abuse here. Call your state hotline to report the abuse. This little girl needs help!

  • Um...this honestly sounds like some huge warning signs of sexual it possible that either of the parents are abusive in your opinion? I would ask the girl next time you see her if anyone has been touching her down there, and if she says yes, ask her that age a child should understand that nobody is supposed to be touching their genitals!

  • Are you a mandatory reporter? If you are, you are required to call CPS. If you're not, it's still the moral thing to do IMO. Asking the mom isn't going to get you anywhere - it would be better to just call someone that can get to the bottom of it without recourse. For the sake of that poor little girl, please just call CPS right away, don't even mention it to the mom (and tell them you want to be anonymous, they cannot tell anyone who called).

  • You had better file a report, today!!! Perhaps you could offer to foster the child, sounds to me like she has been abused, and if the father is getting out and had been charged for abuse, they certainly need to know he is coming back to the home,, please don't let this little girl get hurt anymore, and sounds like her mother could use some parenting classes!

  • If there's already a case open then for sure call and tell them what you've noticed - I'm surprised they haven't already contacted you since you care for her. Do call, tell them you babysit _________ and you've noticed some stuff that you're worried about.

  • That sounds just like sexual abuse! You can always call with an open case so that won't happen to her anymore!
