You most definitely did the right thing. And by doing so you've protected your daughter from further abuse at the hands of her brother. You believed her, which is so critical, and you acted in a way that was important to both your children. Of course you're going to feel "hurt deep down". These are your children, and as their mother, you want to know why you didn't see it, plus a host of other questions you're asking your Self. Now you must act in a way that continues to support your daughter in her healing, and be sure to never expose her to the brother she has come to know as her abuser. If you do, you will never have her trust; she will always believe you chose him over her. At the same time, you're your son's mother, but he cannot be a part of your home any longer. You need help sorting through all of this. Please seek out some form of counselling for your Self, as well as your children. Don't try to deal with this all by your Self. You need a support system in place for you during this very difficult time. I send you and your children love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

You did the right thing!
by: Anonymous

Hi, what you did is the thing that I would want my own mother to do! I am so proud of you! I know that you dont personally know me and that you might think "she is a stranger" but listen when it comes to inappropriate sexual behavior all human beings think and feel alike. Your daughter is hurt and confused and you protected her. I understand that this is your son and you have all sorts of conflicting emotions and guilt. But you are actually doing them both a favor here. There is a high chance that your son will get councelling and change. Which means that you are stopping a behavior that could get really dangerous NOW. Your daughter will heal cause she knows her mom is there for her. Please seek some councelling to help you and your family because a professional can show you how to move through this confusing, painful time AND be a help to your daughter! But as a survivor of sexual abuse, I AM VERY PROUD you did this!

You did the right thing
by: Misty

I'm proud of you for doing the right thing not much mothers will and it will be hard on you for awhile. But remember you do have two children that needs you even though your son hurt your daughter don't abandoned him he is still a child but don't let him back in the house because he might do the same thing. My older brother sexual abuse me when i was a child and no one knew but when he got older he never did it to any other children and he apologize to me and said that he was sorry and the only reason why he did it to me was because our cousin did it to him when he was younger. So your son might have done this to your daughter because something happen to him so don't abandon him because of it and let him know that you are going to be there for him and support him but he can not be around your daughter and let him know that you still love him and help him get the help he needs. also support your daughter and get her the help that she needs and let her know that you still love both of them but you will be there for her and he will not allowed to be back in the house because what he did and make sure your daughter knows that it is not her fault and she did good on telling on him. I will pray that your family gets the help that you guys need and i will pray that you guys get through these tuff times.

Thank You
by: Nathan

I am so glad you beleived your daughter. My parents did not beleive me when i tried to tell them and the abuse continued until actually being witnessed by another family member. My brother was sent to jail for what he put me through. Your son could end up in jail but more likely he will get the help he needs now. Your daughter will need all your love and support and you need support to get through this. Talk to the people dealing with your case they will likely be more then happy to give you that support. I kept quiet for a long time before my 14 year old cousin witness the abuse. I eventually got help but my cousin also had to see a counsellor because of what he had seen. Two young peoples lifes almost destroyed because of the act of another person.
All my love to you and your daughter.
