    This past weekend my 7 year old daughter went to an overnight camping trip and I was informed about an inncident that happened. My daughter was found kissing another girl and then she was touching the other girl in private areas. After long discussions with my daughter she admitted to everything. I have remained calm and supportive for my daughters sake but I am lost of what to do.

    Hi Anon -

    I am sure having this conversation with your daughter was very difficult and I applaud you for remaining calm.

    I hope keeping the lines of communication open, keeping an open and honest relationship will make her feel comfortable coming to you to discuss her feelings.

    Just wanted to clarify - Is your daughter 7 or 17?

    Here are a couple of resources that may spark more conversation and communication -
    Talking to Your Child About Sex
    LGBT Teens and Stress

    Please keep us posted on how you both are doing,
    Elizabeth

    I think you should talk to your girl first. Don't judge her just because of the "facts" you/ others saw. Ask her what is the reason she did this and be supportive would be a better way to deal with this situation.
