My 7 year old nephew was down visiting my parents house for the week. My mom walked upstairs and found the two of them naked behind the couch. My son who is 4 almost 5 didn't say much to my mother about what happened.
She called me and i immediately went over. My son and I have a good relationship and after telling him that he wasn't in trouble and he could tell me anything he told me everything.
It has been happening since my nephew got here and he told my son to keep it a secret. He told him to get naked and to touch each other. And then he put toys inside of my son and inside of himself.
We have gone through all of the official channels and have been to see the child abuse advocacy place here and they helped a lot.
But I still feel sick. I have a hole in the pit of my stomach and I can't breath. I'm getting by during the day but at night I lay there and almost go into a panic attack.
Hes young so I'm very hopeful that he will not be scarred by this and my biggest prayer is that he won't even remember it. If he does and wants to talk my husband and I are here and open for it. But he doesn't seem to be fazed at all by this. He is acting completely normal. And I truly pray that that is the case.
I think that it's my husband and I that are having a hard time coping.
I have two sons and you hear about that kind of thing happening to boys but for some reason you just think that your boys are safe.
This is the worst feeling in the world.
And they are both SO young! My brother and sister in law are getting their son help. And are trying to keep us in the loop as much as possible. They live out of state but we are a really close knit family. And my sons love their cousin. But the won't be seeing him until he gets help. And I'm not sure how to deal with him when that time comes.
I don't know how to deal. I know in my head that it must get better, but my heart doesn't feel that way right now.
everyday is different, my emotions are truly a rollercoaster right now . I’m finding my work days to be extremely challenging , putting on a front I’m ok but inside my heart, mind , and soul I feel as if everything is falling apart . I have to be ok through the workday then collect myself to being strong in front of my daughter . I only have a couple more days of work before I start my leave...
Anyone else have experience with a male 4 year old being abused by a female preschool teacher?
