My Son Was Molested By His Father When He Was 4
On my son's first visit to the barracks on a weekend alone with his father, he was molested. This was the biggest mistake I think I ever made. I am one of those mothers who was always afraid of being accused of touching his son the wrong way so I had his father to bathe him and dress him. All of a sudden, it seemed to "backfire". My now ex husband was in the Army National Guard and at the time he was put on Homeland Security and was placed in the Barracks away from home so he got to see our son on weekends so I let our son go up for a weekend alone. When I went to pick him up, I had car trouble so the following weekend I found out that his father had touched him inappropriately.
Now, 4 years later, my son is in therapy in a children's home, and I am only able to see him once a week because he is a threat to himself and to others and the therapists all say this is a result of what happened to him. They are calling this PTSD, and ODD.
The sad part of the whole thing is, we come from a long line of molested individuals and we must stop this now.
