a year ago i found out that there were alligations of sexual abuse against the father of my children...his victim, our 7 year old daughter! Since the day i found out it has been an emotional roaller coaster. i had to take her for an exam at the childrens hospital which thankfully revealed there was no penetration, only touching. and that is bad enough for me. he has not been allowed to see my kids since july of last year. and now it is about to go to trial. my issue is that my daughter will have to testify in front of him. she has not seen him in over a year and despite what he has done she loves her dad. so my fear is that when she sees him in cuffs and is being questioned that she is going to feel sorry for him and not want to talk. I need advice on how to prepare her mentally for what is about to occur. i always have issues talking to her about it because I dont want to say the wrong thing. but i feel it is important to let her know that he will have to suffer consequences and we need her help to make sure he does not hurt other children...he has 2 other daughters and 2 other sons (one is mine). any advice?
