Quoting Mama Rice:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Sophie's dairy cow:</b>" if my child had no known mental illnesses ... [snip!] ... innocent and then I would be investing in therapy to figure out why they falsely accused that person, who coached them, etc."
A friend of the family was going through a divorce and his wife wanted full custody, so she tried coaching their 4 year old on tape to say things that he'd done to her. You could hear her and the girl's grandma in the background saying things, the girl was mispronouncing words because she didn't understand what was going on etc. She's still smurfed up over it. She's way too mature for her age because she was forced to grow up way too fast over that smurf.
It's sad, but it does happen.
It's worth them finding out for sure 100% of the time, absolutely though.
