Is there any reason you think they may not be?
Just because the alleged crime did not take place at our home and we are not the suspects.
No but they have a duty to investigate all avenues
On the face of it, there is concern that the abuse did not happen there but since she is making the allegation that suggests knowledge inappropriate for a 7 year old.
they have a duty to investigate how that may have come about.
They may well conclude their suspicions are without merit but they have to investigate.
If the children are not going to make any allegations against you then it should be nothing to worry about. Social services have to investigate but if there is nothing to find then there is no need to worry.
I'm afraid that making reports to the police does tend to lead to scrutiny.
Could making comments like 'someone put their hands into my knickers' be classed like 'inappropriate knowledge' ?
It is borderline really.
I think it could be argued to be the sort of thing a 7 year might imagine. It is not as though she is describing the detail of ejaculation.
Although one never knows what children see on TV.
The truth is that the only thing they can't repeat from having seen on media is smells. When they start describing smells the only real explanation is that they have experienced something.
I'm just off for about an hour but I'll be back later if you want to know anything else.
