I'm a single mother of 2. My daughter is 13 and my son is 7. My son's father shot himself 2 years ago. That's when things started to change. When his dad was alive, my son never wanted to go to his house. He would scream and cry and latch on to me. So I would keep him with me. I know his dad watched a lot of porn. And I'm wondering if he saw it.
At first I thought, "They're kids, and kids experiment." (I know I did when I was little.) In the past 2 years my niece and my son have been caught together more than a few times, and each time I would talk to them about it.
My son has been caught with his pants down and my 5-year-old niece sucking his penis. I instantly told them to stop. I explained that kids don't do stuff like that. I told them it was disgusting and they should never touch each other again. I talked to my niece about it and she said he told her to do it. It happened a couple other times except it got worse. He tried to stick his penis in her vagina. They are no longer allowed to be around each other. And my son isn't going to be around any other kids until I find out what is going on.
I'm just not sure why this is happening. I'm so scared he's going to be a bad person. I want to help him. When I talk to him about it he says, "I don't know, mom," and then changes the subject.
How can I help my child?
