    ballaonikkib:  In a situation like this I would take my daughter and sit down and talk to her about this. When you talk to her do it in private, it has to be just you and her and no one else present. First you need to tell her that she's not in trouble and re ensure her that no one is going to hurt her or her family and if anyone told her that it was a lie. Then I would start asking her questions if anyone touched her bum and what did they touch it with and go from there. Make sure you stay strong and believe what she's telling you even if it hurts you to hear who it is. Also make sure you definetly do something about it because no child she put through that. I hope this helps and if you need any other advise or someone to talk to I'm here to comfort you..

    Hi GRPetal
    I have to say that GoGranny has a point about the missing informaqtion, it would put things properly into perspective. As a grandfather of 7 and 6 of them girls, i heard the warning bells going off before I had got to the "touching" part. Obsessive cleaning is often seen as an underlying indication of self loathing, a sense of personal "unclean". This could come from something early in her life, or if it suddenly manifested itself, must be because something has happened to her recently. The naivity of her offer to your boyfriend almost shows her immaturity and her lack of adult social awareness. I think you might need to talk to the girls mother before you take any action......good luck
