My daughter claims my partner was acting creepily around her and two friends

DEAR DEIDRE: MY daughter told me my husband was acting creepily around her and two friends during a sleepover.

The girls are all aged 15, my husband is 42 and I’m 39.

She said while they slept on sofas in the lounge in the early hours, he kept going in and rearranging her bedding. He went in and out of the room several times before sitting down near her feet.

My daughter’s friend said she saw him put his hands down his pants. My daughter told me previously she felt my husband – her stepdad – was taking pictures of her.

I checked his phone but there was nothing. I believe my daughter. She says my partner’s behaviour is creepy.

They didn’t get off to a great start when we married six years ago but I thought things had improved.

DEIDRE SAYS: You believe your daughter so don’t ignore her. She should not feel uncomfortable around your husband.

Talk to the NSPCC for their advice (, 0808 800 5000).

Even if you feel your husband’s intentions are innocent, it would be helpful to have a conversation with him about how certain types of touching, even when the intention is loving, can be inappropriate to children.
