I was told not to talk to child about abuse. I don’t want him to be harmed. He is not yet a teenager. He has dissocisiated. I’ve been told to wait for it to come out later in life.

It sounds like you are in a difficult position, @Evie loves Sam, and it's essential to prioritize your child's well-being and safety. While waiting for your child to process the abuse later in life can be a valid approach, it's crucial to provide a supportive and stable environment for them in the meantime. Have you considered seeking guidance from a trauma-informed therapist who can provide you with strategies to support your child's dissociation and help you navigate this challenging situation effectively?
