A 12-year-old boy raped his sister three times after being influenced by sex scenes from a video game. The 6-year-old girl was told that they were 'special bundles and snuggles'.
The boy told Swindon Youth Court, in England, that he watched a sexual act in the game, 'Grand Theft Auto', and recreated the scene on his sister more than once.
The game in question, is for those aged 18 and above, and is known for the graphic nature of sex and violence. The boy wanted to try out the scenes to 'see what it was like for himself'.
Apparently, he raped his sister while the adults in the house were asleep, or in another room. On one occasion, another sibling was in the room when it happened.
The incidents came to light when the little victim confided in her school friend, and the girl told their teacher. The boy has pleaded guilty to the charges.
The boy is currently not living with his siblings. He will have to complete a 12-month referral order.
“We just want to make things right and do what’s best for the safety of the children," the boy’s mother has been quoted as saying.
"My daughter used to be very sad this was her fault, but she’s come on leaps and bounds, she’s a very strong girl and there’s not an ounce of sadness in her now, I’m so proud of her,” she said.
Real Dangers of Watching Porn or Adult Content on Children
Pornography is a serious menace. Research has found out that long term exposure to pornography can cause many detrimental behaviours. A study by the American College of Paediatricians found out that subjects:
“Tell them that ‘If you ever see something that bothers you, or that makes you feel yucky, please tell me, and I will help you.’”
If you catch your child watching porn or adult content:
Being overly-emotional, angry, concerned and confused is normal… but won’t get you anywhere. Perhaps these words are enough to describe your feelings as a parent when you first find out that your child often watches adult videos.
However, the first thing you must do is to calm yourself down. This is so that you can begin a conversation with your child in an even-tempered manner.
Don’t blame or scold your child. Stay calm and act maturely.
Show your support and care at all times. Get to know what exactly they have seen/read.
What else can you do once you know that your child has come across/frequently watches pornographic videos? Parents can take the extra step by providing extra supervision at home and in school. This includes limiting their access to viewing adult videos and being wary of who they befriend.
