  1. I had a little girl who was about 7 (year two) become sexual with me when I was alone in the classroom. She just walked in when I was having lunch (students couldn’t use the staff room in that school) and said that she liked me and grabbed my willy with one hand and put her other down her trousers.

    I calmly asked her to stop and asked her to sit down as I wanted to have a chat, in front of a camera of course. I asked her if she had done anything like that with anyone else and she said her dad had been making her touch him, while he touched her (for years apparently). She must have thought that was a natural thing to do with boys she liked/trusted.

    I wrote down what she and I said during this and told her I believed her and she was being very brave. If they ask about the writing (I’ve handled things like this since then) I say it’s a letter to the teacher (I’m a TA) saying how amazed I was with how brave and truthful they were during the talk. I don’t offer rewards as that can be used in court to say I coerced her. Otherwise I would ask for her to have one.

    At the end I told her I believed her and asked her to go outside. I gave the letter to the teacher and she handled it from there.

    The father was not allowed to be near his daughter once social services investigated, even though he was seen hanging around the school on occasion. He was eventually arrested and charged.

    The child became very clingy and emotional around me until I had to leave as my training was finished. From what I heard, she received therapy and has largely gotten over what has been done to her.
