My step daughter was sexually assaulted on Sunday night. I consulted with a friend who is a police officer on what we should do. I presented her with the option of going to the ER and getting a rape kit done, calling the police and filing a report, taking her to my therapist. I was met with a big fat NO on all the options. Since then she has been sitting on my couch, saying next to nothing, and refusing help. What should I do? I can't make her as she is 19. I feel so helpless to help her. Do I make her get off the couch and start moving forward? Is it too soon? Help!!
