I think you're right. Even if he hadn't been abused i wouldn't let them

That is so sad.


Quoting AthenaGrace:

You are not wrong at all. Dh and I both had sexual experiences that young and most of the kids I knew did as well. It's never too early to supervise that.

Your house, your rules. If you do not want them playing together in his room, then so be it. You are the parent and get to make the decisions.

If it was a normal case I wouldn't mind. Even teenagers I wouldn't mind. In this case I may make exception.

I agree. You never know when something could bring up his past experience and turn things around. You're doing the right thing watching then based off what happened to him.

Quoting Anonymous:

Unfortunately some sick-o has taken his innocence, you son has been exposed to things he never should have (not your fault). What you're doing is the right thing, protecting him and that little girl is a GOOD thing. He can have friends, but he can also deal with constant supervision.

I think you are doing the right thing. I remember when my brother was about the same age I went too the neighbors where he was suppossed to be playing with the little girl that was his age. No he was in bed with her 14 year old sister. I told my mom and he was NEVER allowed there again!
