thank you so much for using Just Answer.
This is not a very nice situation for you and I can understand that you are torn between the responsabilty for your sons and the wish not to hurt anybody
Do I understand correctly: the cousin was 10 years of age ? He did abuse them at such a yoing age ?
As the kid is so young he cannot be punished for what he did
If you are sure, if you are really sure you should report it to the Jugendamt.
my kids were 5 and 6. and the youngest one came to my wife and i and told us
Maybe the kid needs psychological treatment of some kind
my wife and I argue about this all the time, because I do not want them around this kid anymore and she want me to just let it go
Ok whether the accusations are true or not would have to be verified with a psychological expertise.
the kid that did this, even told us he did it
But safety comes first I would not let my hildren alone with this kid anymore
This is very strange indeed.
it is my wife sister son
so germany will not do anything about this
No matter how he is related to you at age ten he should have an inkling of what is rieght and what is wrong
he know what he was doing, because if my son did not tell us, he would keep on doing it
that is how i feel
If you are sure I would report it to the parents and maybe to the Jugendamt so they can find some kind of treatment for him , maybe find out what kind of problem he has
No , something has to be done
the parents know and did nothing
Maybe your kids are not the only ones...
I would strongly recommend reporting it to the Jugendamt
is that the police
i don't speak german
Ah Jugendamt you mean. Just a sec I am lokking for the translation
Youth welfare service
Every city has one
so that is the law in german
Yes . No punishment until they are 14 years of age
is a positive rating possible ?
This is how I get credit
how do i rate this
i am ready to rate this
Now it is possible
Please remember that you rate my service for you and not whether the answer is what you want it to be
you have rated this a poor service. May I know the reason why
I can only tell you the legal situation
according to German Law 14 is the age of criminal responsibility.
This is stated in § 19 STGB ( Criminal Law)
Before that age the only possibilty are care orders.
I am here for you on a Saturday I do not deserve a poor rating because of a legal situation that I cannot change
I am only the messenger of a message that is not what you wanted to hear and I am sorry for that but it is not my fault
I am very unhappy with the rating you gave me and it affects my overall rating
So please could you at least rate me an ok service
I would be grateful for that
