We are visiting my wife Aunt and she has a daughter who is 3 years elder than my son, who is 7. I would describe my son as moody as well as good, depending on his mood. He does like attention so makes up things until asked then he apologises.
Today after all day of playing he became silent as the girl said he is not playing with me. I asked him alone the reason, he told that the girl was poking him which when asked the girl said yes but I poked while playing as they were playing so it was sort of game which was fine.
I told both that in playing things happen but you both are like sibling.
Issue happened later when our son was asked to go to his room where he was sleeping with his brother and he started crying and disturbed everyone at 5am, according to wife he told her that the cousin girl asked him to kiss her. While he was telling her mom this I went into loo to tell that we will talk in morning as it was 5am.
Now problem is how should we deal with it? Same thing happened to me when I was 8 with my niece but my mom then didn’t believed me as behind closed doors told my brother what I tried to do and it was due to tv and movies that my 18 years old elder brother sees etc. (Of course I never asked my niece to kiss me, she did while I was asleep).
When I heard about my son issue. I was shocked and how to deal with it? I know my mother broke my trust and I hate that girl (my niece) till now, I do not want to shatter my son confidence and yet deal with it as a parent.
