Any advice is needed please.
My ex and i are going through family law court for custody of our 2 1/2 year old daughter but she is showing signs of sexual abuse after coming back from her dad highly distressed and making comments for two weeks now such as pointing to her downstairs and saying “sore daddy naughty” repeatedly and saying “sleep on bed with daddy” “daddy make sore i cry daddy say shhh” these are only a few things of what is now 7 pages of things she is saying in two weeks. I have reported to facs, police, had a hospital social worker and doctor check and called child helplime, 1800 respect and anything i can find. Facs and police say its not enough to investigate but everyone else says there is definitely something going on as all of these things are completely out of character for her. She even had a nightmare on friday night and woke up sweating and scared saying “i go out from daddy” she is only little so cannot explain fully what she wants to say and thats why they keep saying its not enough coming from a 2 year old. She has stopped toilet training and had started sucking her thumb for the first time ever. I have her booked in for a child specialist play therapy psycologist appointment in 2 weeks, its the earliest i could find but i dont want to keep sending her until we know whats happening. Because there is interim court orders i cant just stop time without proof and with facs and police saying it may be just a nappy rash i have no support to stop her going. I am broken and dont know what to do anymore. Please can anyone offer any advice or somewhere i can go for help.or support 🙏😭

The is completely heartbreaking to read. I am horrified that from what you have said the police are not going to take action. It seems like you have done everything you can so far. What does your lawyer say about the visits???

Omg this is horrifying. I would simply not let her go, never mind the consequences … it is a risk you can’t take.

Surely you have proof, take it to your lawyer. This is something the court would surely have to take into account.

This sounds like a truly horrible experience to be going through and my heart goes out to you. However, have you considered talking to your ex about this? Does he have any previous relating to sexual abuse? It is a massive claim that could destroy lives. He may be able to shed some light around why she is saying these things.

Is it possible that it is severe nappy rash? My daughter has had it so bad that the skin macerated, and believe me, there was a lot of screaming, and I was naughty for trying to put cream on. She was very out of character as it was so extremely painful and irritated. It only got better with a week of curash cream.
She also sleeps in Dad’s bed when she stays with him. I think it’s normal at that age.
Her distress could be something very innocent. But you know your ex better than us.

Has she been treated for nappy rash? How is she when you change her? Have you asked your ex about how she is acting?

Just a question as I don’t wish to pry but I was abused by my father from a small age, and now I think that every male is a potential threat to my Daughter.So I was wondering if this is true for you to? As mothers who have been abused it is always on your radar.And sometimes for myself its been hard for me not to take anything my child says or does as a warning when really it may not be.But from what your saying it does sound very upsetting and as a mother you must be in such a difficult postion my heart does go out to you both.Just a thought any way you could plant a hidden microphone in your exs house just to get some peace of mind?

Go to a doctor hun have your daughter checked and get a medico-legal report that you can present in court. It would be better as well if you can as a therapist to assess your daughter as this might cause trauma to your child.
