So last night I get a call from a good friend and he's pretty lathered up. Well I find out why, it has to do with my 7yo step son and my 10 1/2mo daughter. Apparently they were taking a bath together, normal really for siblings to do this. But he decided for some unknown reason to insert his fingers into my daughters whoo-whoo. From what I was told by both my friend first then later the mother, it was for a period of about 5 seconds. Of course I went into a lather and had a quite difficult time in maintaining control. I told the boy that I was (and I have a call into my doctor for a recommended pediatrician) going to have her examined by a doctor and if it was found that she has been molested, I would remand him to the court system for processing. That was the threat I made to him. Now, I understand kids are curious and they do some silly things BUT, this boy is pretty well educated on the differences of boys and girls. He has seen his mom naked and she has been very direct in answering his questions. He knows where babies come from and understands that it takes a mom and dad to make them. And this in my experience (I have 7 sisters and I don't ever remember at the age of 7 trying to stick things into their whoo-whoo's.) this is a bit odd for a 7yo. Now a qualifier, I have a pretty good sense of people and their character. It's rare, very rare that I am wrong about a persons moral fiber and overall character. I have always been good a "reading" people and determining their motives and over all trust worthiness. This kid sends my slime-ball meter pinging. And I am not the only one. Several of my male friends have said similar things to me about how they perceive him. He has demonstrated a conniving aptitude in manipulating women with his good looks and charm. But I, and others have seen this behavior with pretty dark undertones. He still bullies his cousins and other children (even after an ass whipping by a bigger boy) something I have been working to eliminate. The bottom line is my relationship with the mother is pretty much strained as she is taking his side, which is not unexpected. But she is saying that the fear I put into the boy was uncalled for and over the top. So... was I out of line?
