Well I noticed a trend when she started staying the night with her grandma and her husband ( my fiances mom) more often this last summer. She would come home and her fears and anxiety became worse following her staying with them.. She started bed wetting again ( after staying dry for months before going there) she would go through phases on and off that the fear was worse. But I never put two and two together because if u met them u would never suspect anything like abuse.. When I began to realize that it was worse after returning home from there, I began to get suspicious and I asked my daughter if somthing bothers her about going to grandma Kelly's? She always told me no. Except for once she said she was afraid of John. I asked why? She replied idk.. So I confronted kelly asking if she had an idea about why my daughter would be afraid of her husband? and she got very defensive blaming me. N2m Kelly is very over solicitive of my daughter and favors her over my 2 yr old son?? I took her to abuse psychologist and I felt it was rushed and inadequate. He said "well if she seems better while away from them, leave it alone".. I feel helpless cause my daughter is definitely way too smart for her age and won't tell me anything. Sorry this is so long there are many more red flags I won't mention cuz it will take way too long to get into details. But one other thing, her grandparents always wanted to get their other grandson at the same time they would keep my daughter.. He is 8 and even though they have a huge lake house with 4 bedrooms and several beds, they made them sleep in the same bed and my daughter with no panties( mind u my daughter has had issues about not wanting to wear her panties since she was 3)

hey

why is she scared ? has she mentioned anything to u ? I think if children want our support ....we should give them . if she is scared ...be with her ...after a few days u can ask her what is bothering her . she may have watched something scary on tv ...or could be anything else . try to find out. Make sure she knows u r there for her . This will give her a lot of emotional support. once u find out whats troubling her ...the picture will be much clearer ...
