How do I deal with my anger over grand child being sexually molested.

My name is Teresa. I am the mother of 3 and grandmother of 6. My son called me last night very upset because his 3 year old daughter was sexually molested in front of her 5 year old brother. The molester is the 14 year old son of a friend. He was babysitting for them. We live in a small community and our hospital is not capable of handling this situation. So they have to wait until Monday to take her to children's in Mineapolis. I have to be strong for my son and be supportive, but I really want to scream, cry and go after the kid. I know I have to let law enforcement handle it. I just think how many years it's going to take these kids and there parents get through this. My son is crushed especially because you shouldn't have to worry about this kind of stuff when it's family or friends. Ugh! I need help!

I would suggest get yourself into some counselling. Is there a helpline you can ring to talk to someone where you are?
I agree that you have to let the authorities handle it and yes, it's hard. You all need to be supportive for each other and help everyone through this.
