my now ex quite badly assaulted me sexually for years. i dont think he ever touched our daughter who is now 2y3m but have an element of not sure about it. .

she had a new brother in october and seems.a bit too curious with his privates and seems to have a weird thing for touching it and pulling it etc .. i cant work out if its normal 2 year old behaviour or if maybe alarm bells should be there. also even more awkwardly is that she has a thing for patting men on their privates (fully clothed and includes strangers).. hard to describe how i mean :/

Ring that NSPCC as they will be able to give you good advice.

I'm so sorry but this doesn't sound normal.

Hello OK this does not sound good! You're 2 year old should not be recreating anything sexual especially relating to mens genitals!!! My guess probably picked behaviour up from around you and various partners because he was abusing you why even risk around children

Pulling at little brother's dangly bits seems within the range of normal to me (seem to remember this is why we stopped joint bathing- I was getting worried she would hurt him).

Patting grown men far more worrying.

Agree with cory - whilst being curious about brother's bits is totally normal (even wanting to touch them) - the touching men on their privates is not.

I would definitely ring the NSPCC - I think the touching privates is normal, my 2yo son often points to my daughter saying "willy gone?" - as far as the patting adults private area? I think that is a little odd?

So sorry you've had to go through this, I hope they give you some answers xxx

it is being investigated. 90% of me thinks im wrong but he sexually assaulted me repeatedly so i cant 100% say not

Well why don't you ring the NSPCC? I would do that.

My 2.1 yr old girl pulls and plays with her brothers penis from time to time. She is very curious about it generally.
The diff is he is three so maybe she has seen him doing it. DS has never really been interested in her vagina, other than to know where it is and why she has it.

social services are investigating it. i had a TAF meeting yesterday and i raised it there
