Remember me telling you that we filed a police report?

About the 18 yr. old that wouldn't leave my DD alone?

The arrested him and charged him with sexual misconduct on a child. He's on house arrest.

He may have destroyed his life but warning after warning he wouldn't leave her alone! Still I have the guilt but I know I shouldn't. He is so stupid. Or maybe he is sick. Who's to know? I hate feeling this way and my DD is upset because she thinks its extreme, but he has her, or had her, a little brainwashed and she is so naive and sheltered.

I'm rambling huh? Stressed. Guess that's why I couldn't sleep. Now she has to go see a victims advocate. Maybe that woman can make her understand.

I am glad you were able to do something. Don't feel guilt, he was warned and did it to himself. He chose to continue with behavior that was illegal. I hope the VA can help your daughter see the situation for what it is.

I agree with Lisa.  He made his choices.  But I don't know how to tell you not to feel "guilty" - I know that's much easier said than done.    I hope, with counseling, your daughter can understand - it may take her years, though, before she finally does. 

Way to Go, Michell.  Thank goodness for this group!

You did the right thing, so hope you get past the guilt.  Hopefully your daughter will benefit from the counseling and understand why it was necessary.  Stalking is a dangerous game and he needed to be stopped.

Sad BUT .. YOU did the right thing,
He should have listened to you when you told him to leave your DD alone :)

I don't know the back story, but I do no that sometimes we have to take extreme measures, in order to best protect our kids.

He sounds like a rather disturbed young man, and you had to do what you could to protect your child.  Don't feel guilty.

 I hope the advocate can talk some sense into your daughter!  Sometimes they will listen to someone other than their parent ;)

 Maybe he was sick in some way but the point is this....you needed to take care of your dd and you did.  I don't know how you can ease your guilt but I hope you can because you don't have anything to feel guilty about.  I assume you feel that way because of his age and who knows I might would feel the same way.  But....I do admire you for doing what you needed to do to protect your dd.   I hope you feel better soon about it.    :)

 I'm hoping that will be the case too.
