Our expert says:
Thanks for the follow-up, Riana. So sorry to hear confirmation that your daughter has been abused, which is what I suspected ; but of course she's far safer now that this is recognized. It's upsetting for you, but natural, that mother and father and other family members would be amongst those suspected --- because obviously most people are abused by someone they know and who has easy access to them. If it is confirmed that the boy-friend actually assaulted her, in due course, he can be charged with assault, and she could also get a court order forbidding him to come anywhere near her ever again.
It may be that somehow she expected both you and your hubby to protect her against this boy, or whoever else may have abused her, and be scared to tust you again, for fear that she won't be protected again.
I hope her treatment proves successful.
