My daughter just told me last week that my best friend who is currently over 50 years of age touched her inappropriately along with talking sexually with her. She made me promise not to say anything to him or to anyone else cause he told her that I would stop being his friend. She is afraid that he will Never Forgive Her which I responded by saying I don't care about that at all. I am angry, sad, upset, and extremely worried about my daughter. She is currently seeing a therapist and the therapist believes she also needs to see a psychiatrist. I'm trying not to give too much detail for my daughter's privacy sake. I need her to trust me so she will continue to open up to me. I want this man to pay!!!! I want him to never speak to me or my family again. I trusted him like a brother and now I am doubting our 20 year friendship. She wants me to talk to him when he calls and act like nothing has changed. She also doesn't want me to say anything to her Dad which I understand because he would be beyond angry and might do something he would regret later. How should I handle this?
