Mother/grandmother of children/grandchildren

My 24 year old son recently told us he was sexually abused when he was little by my step dad. Now my grandson who turned 4 yesterday was being sexually abused by his step dad and yesterday the daycare called to tell us a kid in his class was trying to Rape him when the teacher found them. The feelings and thoughts are ones I have never experienced. To the point of obsessing harm to the predators. I am a very spiritual person so these thoughts and feelings don't sit well with me. How can such a young child become a predator ? They removed my grandson from the class and won't tell us who or what he did to my grandson. Today my grandson goes to the doctor? Where do we go from here? When we punish him he relates it to what happened my the step dad? Please need some courage,strength,and hope?

Anyone who is a victim of abuse should get into counseling. Those that love them might also need counseling. If a child was being sexually aggressive to another child, then either your grandson was "playing" with this child in the way that the adult "played" with him. Or the other kid may also be a victim of abuse. Kids otherwise do not know or do this type of behavior. It's a horrible thing to deal with for everyone involved. I hope your grandson's abuser (the adult) is being prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I don't know if there's anything that can be done now about your son's abuser, but you can check the laws where you live to see if there's a statue of limitations on that kind of thing.
