My 5-year-old just came back from his dad's for the weekend. He has a half-sister who is 16. He told me that his dad "beats and spanks" her. When I asked him if he spanks him, he said "no." He also said that his dad "spanks" his girlfriend when she does something wrong- like put groceries in the wrong cupboard. I am concerned, and wondering if what a 5-year-old tells me is enough to report suspicion of abuse on the 16-year-old.
Thanks for any advice you can give.
