    My child has told another child & his school teacher that his dad has abused him (sexually) social services came to the house but my child didn’t give them all the details they needed. They then visited the school with a police officer & talked to him again but he told them he couldn’t remember what happened. Social services now are stating my child is lying & that it hasn’t happened. My child is so upset & keeps saying no one believes him & that’s he doesnt want to see his dad anymore. It’s not the first time my child has been abused in his dad’s care. They have come home twice with bruises & my child has stated his dads partners have caused them but his dad has always denied it & called him a liar to his face. I’m starting to worry that no one is going to take my child seriously until he ends up seriously injured or worse.

    I guess the first question is.. Do you believe your child?
    And the second question is.. why are you still letting the Dad pick up the child if you have
    the excuse of “He doesn’t want to see you because he says you have assaulted him?”.

    Have to ask.

    Adam his dad hasn’t seen him since June. Of course I believe my child that’s why I contacted social services & the police but no one believes what he has said. They’ve pretty much in one way or another said he’s either lying or I’ve made him say it which is very heartbreaking because I would never say those things about anyone or even make a child say them. My ex has always called our child liar when there is evidence of physical assault etc but social services feel there is no problem in regards to my ex partner. He has taken to driving past the school every morning & our child has become so worried he refuses to go school because he’s scared of seeing him. With the way our child is reacting I can’t understand why no one sees an issues in regards to my ex.
