Do adult children lie about being sexually abused as children?

I am desperate for help. Last summer my world fell apart when my 26 year old daughter send me a message that her father had molested her for years as a child. I was shocked. The thought of that made me sick and I had never seen any signs but I didn't want to be that stupid mother that calls her daughter a liar. She claims I knew because I asked her so many times if anyone had touched her inappropirately but I was just trying to be a good mother and would never ever ignore such a thing. My grown son says he never saw anything but wholeheartedly believes his sister as this is the first time

Do adult children lie about being sexually abused as children?

Tough one, because if she is telling the truth and you don't believe her, she will be angry at you forever and think you were sticking your head in the sand yet again, and if he is telling the truth and you don't believe him, he will be really hurt, possibly to permanent damage in the marriage.  If you have to know the truth in order to keep living with him, ask them both to take polygraph tests. Alternatively, you could explain to your daughter that you either have to believe her and leave your husband, or not believe her and possibly compound the pain she felt as a child.  Ask her how she would feel if you stayed with your husband without knowing if what she says is true or not.

To all who were sexually abused as children!!!

What a wonderful post,I hope everone that has blamed a person for not saying anything reads this,I'd also like to add when you've been abused and become an adult quite often you still won't say anything for fear of not being believed.when itold my parents in my late 20s they ignored it and swept it under the carpet,I have just found out at 47 they assumed I was having false memories because they asked my brother who was 10 yrs older than me and he denied it.

Help with adopted daughter

I would think she needs to see a talk therapist and family therapy is best because the rest of the family doesn't know how to handle her issues. NAMI friend and family support groups are good but general family therapy is essential.

Need advice from psychiatrist/therapist re: my adopted young adults (bipolar) - stealing - fetish?; drug abuse; deviant sexual behavior

None of us could provide medical advice. If you want a specific clinical answer post in the "ask a doctor" forum. However, as a person who has worked in the past as an advocate for people with disabilities I can tell you HIPPA laws are hard to over ride. There are exceptions though. If there is a concern as regards abuse, Adult Protective Services can be called and if the person has a psychiatric disability they know how to handle it. There is also an agency called the Mobile Crisis Team. Both can be called if you believe that someone is being abused or neglected. All of that behavior does indicate a person is in need of psychiatric help but only a psychiatrist could make a specific diagnosis.

3 yr old lying capabilities

I'm assuming based on the 1994 in your name,  that you're 21 years old.   I would guess there are still records of this - it would only have been 18 years ago. I don't think you can possibly piece together the truth here from what you have been told.  Your father's mother likely asked you if you didn't tell the social worker about it because you knew it was a lie,  and you agreed in some way,  either mumbling through it or just nodding agreeably. Has your father been accused by anyone else of sexual abuse?  Have you ever had him attempt anything inappropriate in your later years?

Children who sexually abuse children?

I'm so sorry for all you and your son went through. But you shouldn't blame yourself. I understand how you feel because my oldest son (now 30) was molested by a baby sitter's son. I blamed myself because I felt I should have known. But then one day I realized it wasn't my fault. I considered her one of the best sitter's I had. We even socialized outside of her babysitting my children. I still hurt for my son and pray he doesn't blame me. There is hope for your son to get better and live past what happened to him. I was also molested when I was 7 or 8. I barely have the problems that was caused by the molestation. My relationship with God was the cause for my help. Praying for you guys.

What to do?

I don't think she can be charged with perjury for telling the state screener a lie and then later telling the truth when under oath.  It is VERY common for people to hide molestation, it will certainly not be the first time a judge or hearings officer sees a person testify differently than they told an interviewer because they initially were afraid of the consequences.  The worst thing, if she is even asked to testify, is that someone might claim she is lying now instead of lying then.  That would be embarrassing, but it doesn't rise to the level of getting charged with perjury.   When your daughter told the state screener that there was no molestation, was this in a formal setting in which she was under oath, like a hearing?  If so, she should contact a lawyer and explain the situation, and see for sure if there would be any chance someone would charge her with anything if she tells the truth now.  I doubt it, though. If she is being subopenaed because the dad wants her to say he didn't molest her, and if he in fact did not, but her brother did and this comes out in the testimony, it might make her a less valuable character witness to the dad.  Her attorney should be sure to speak to the attorney that subpoenaed her to warn him that she might not be as helpful to his case as he thinks, since her story is going to differ from what she said before.  The other attorney might decide not to call her to testify at all if he realizes her telling the truth will harm his case.  Then she would be off the hook. She won't be charged with perjury for telling the truth on the witness stand.

Are these signs that my 3 year old is being sexually abused?

This is reminisent of something that happened to my Daughter many years ago, I would say it is Sexual abuse and you need to get your child checked by the Doc and have his report given to the Courts etc, Certainly no child should be made to go to anyone who makes her so afriad, you need to believe her, my Daughter has never got over her abuse at the Hands of her Grandfather we didnt know till her Granma died and she felt she could tell us, I blame myself for not being more observant ,it went on from age 6 to 12 year old, tto this day her behavior has been extreme and it definatly stems back to the Abuse.
