Keep a log of things that have supposedly happened. Eventually you may need to ask that a guardian ad litem be appointed to represent the best interests of your child. You need more than what the child says to do anything, independent proof is required. We try to do this through the guardian, but many times you will need other proof, depending upon what is alleged.

You are going to need corroboration of what the child saw so perhaps have the child talk to a counselor or specialist.

If this is really a safety issue you should call the abuse hotline. A child protective investigator will visit within 24 hours. 1800-96-abuse
