you wouldnt catch me taking any sort of family member back into the fold if this happened.

No way.

OMG that is revolting. What about the poor child? Is she supposed to forgive and forget?

some women are unbeliveable.

my childrens protection would come first-no matter what i had to do to protect them, iyswim? my love for my partner(although deep and trusting) cannot exceed love for my children. in my life anyway-i would be out with DC's like a shot.

what did the dad appear to think about his behaviour?

scorpio1 Tue 21-Aug-07 14:45:17

but surely the Dad must have already gone past the 'power' point when he touched his little girl, iyswim? it must have been thought about by him, not just done on the off chance.

no doubt put in his head by therapist.

i think that wedding vows are sacred; but what about your unspoken vows and duties and love for your own children? surely that comes before the vows of marriage?

I saw it and I had to turn it off because it made me sick.

scorpio1 Tue 21-Aug-07 14:49:20

oh yeah, lets protect the bad man.

stupid cow.

i dont think that it can be forgiven-in any circumstance. i know people who have been abused as children, it affects their lives now, nearly 20 years on.

sick but true it happens. I worked with a family once, and he admitted he was thinking of young boys when having sex with wife. He didnt abuse his own children, but was charged on more than one time of other things which i wont discuss. She stood by him all the way, and believed that god would help cure him!

How sad for that little girl, no one protecting her at all Glad i didnt watch it.

disgraceful message to the victim in doing this - better have a dad who abused you that none at all

the Mother has a lot to answer for making her selfish decisions

I turned it off after the little girl made the incredibly brave decision to confide in her mother, and instead of immediately phoning the police and having his sorry ass arrested on the spot, she continued to live with him until the daughter told her he was touching her again.

All she did was drive him to a park and yell at him.

That made me want to vomit because kids are literally trapped in their homes - it's not they can go out and get a job and move out.

was it repeated abuse?
