im the worst mom in the world...................i didnt know this was happening!! ETA new information
i have been crying since last night. DD is 7 and her 6 year old cousin has been touching her private parts. DD is so scared that her little cousin is going to get in trouble. CPS said they are going to send an investigator to my nieces house to see what she has to say about why she did it. i called cps because i didnt know what else to do. these are little girls who are cousins and their grandma always let them play together in the cousins room.
my MIL has custody of both of my nieces because their parents signed over their rights.
i feel like the worst mom in the world because this happened. im supposed to protect my child and i had no idea i had to protect her from her little cousin in this way. is there anything else i can do other than what i have done and keep her away from her cousin?
This did not happen at my house and i still feel like a horrible mom.
No i do not believe my DD started this.Further questioning of the mother and father who have given up their rights, have shown that every child that was in their house was sexually abused. did this come up from my niece being molested when she was 2 by her 12 year old brother? possibly. is it possible that someone new is abusing her and she is acting it out on my DD? possibly. With the history that has been revealed, I DO NOT BELIEVE FOR A SECOND IT WAS CHILDREN EXPLORING. My dh and I have always told my kids the difference between whats an okay touch(drs, having to be cleaned by a family member(adult) and whats not okay. I choose to believe my DD. I am very thankful for those who are showing support. For the ones saying, its just kids being kids, i strongly disagree.
