Her mental age is starting to catch up to her physical age. The hormones are starting to "kick" in. I am a "new" mom, we just adopted our daughter this past June. She just turned 18 but mentally she is a 10 yr old little girl.

Any suggestions?



thanks,

Delinda

I'm assuming she turned 18 after June? Seems a bit odd to have an adoption at that age.



I agree with asking her counselor how to handle it.

I think maybe talk with a professional on how to deal with it. The reason I say this, is because she has been sexually abused, and you do not want to say the wrong thing. Good luck.
