Hi,\nim not going to go into full details of abuse however im in a difficult position and would like views of others.\nmy step daughter has 50\/50 care with my my partner and my partners Ex. She loves her dad and on the whole hes very good.\nshe is 8 and has told us her step brother 15 has sexually abused her, held her wrists and touched her over clothing multiple times and tries to play the game with her. Police want to deal as educational and are loathed to deal as a crime so childrens services following police lead had had a word with said boy and told him its in appropriate. However told my ex to deal with living arrangements between them as its not a safeguarding. \nhe will not give up child access but has agreed to keep her safe, not allowed in same\nroom together un accompanied and a few other rules. My ex is torn between allowing her to stay with him in same\nhouse as step brother because she knows removing her will emotionally be traumatic for her or removing her to protect her and going to court.\nshes trying to do the right thing for the kids mental\nwell\nbeing but other people share a different view.\nwhy wont childrens services take this seriously and intervene and put measures in for the 15 year old. Just wanting some advice really on what others would\ndo- keep child away until police or children\u2019s services act or leave on house under agreement father will protect her?
