My ex-girlfriend was sexually molested twice when she was about 6-7 years old. Her parents knew about it, and they “knew” the guy who did it, but they didn’t have him arrested or anything. They also didn’t have Rachel go to a counselor or anything like that.
At my urging, she finally told her mother about the details of what happened when she was a senior in high school. Her mothers response was basically this: “Well, I think there are counselors that you can see when you get down to FSU (Florida State.)”
But, Rachel never did go see a counselor because she didn’t think that it was “as big a deal as you are making it out to be.”
Even thou things ended REALLY horribly between us, I still care about her and I’m worried that her molestation experience will affect the way that she treats/cares for/raises her own kids.
Having said that, I have to say that because of a court order I can’t have any contact with her, (VERY long, but semi-interesting story, so I can’t offer her any advice, but I’m wondering what the Dopers have to say, as you seem to be a reasonably intelligent bunch:cool: .
Thanks in advance.
