She has never been sexually abused and she down't have any mental problems. Is this just a phase she's going though? And does anyone have any advice on how to handle it?
Ok here's some questions I have if you don't mind answering it might give some more insight. You say he's her real father but has he always been in the picture? If so then how close are they? Is he an active parent? Or is their any emotional detachment between them? How exactly did she bring this up? I'm shocked that she'd think it was ok to suggest it joking or not in front of you which is why I was thinking maybe for some reason she's mad or jealous of you. Whatever the reason these are just questions but regardless get her to counseling right away! I know some disagree but in this case I'd definitely be checking things out like txt msgs, emails, myspace, and snooping! I know some may disagree but this child may be in danger of a predator of some sort. Good luck and keep us updated.
