She's been sleeping with different men since I was seven and sometimes masturbates.

I'm 18 and my mom is 41. She's been sleeping with different men since I was seven and sometimes masturbates, I've tried talking to herabout her behaviour, but she doesn't change. I'm afraid that my little sister, who is five, will grow up facing what I've been facing. How do I make her stop.

Sis Dolly answers:

If she's a sex addict, then she needs to get some counselling for her addiction. My concern is that she's exhibiting this behaviour in front of you and your sister. The levels of discomfort for you are not acceptable. I addition, I'd be concerned about your ability to form healthy sexual relationships in the future, I'd suggest that you tell your mother that her behaviour has become unbearable for you and you're going to have to seek counselling and outside help. This is not a threat to alter her behaviour, but rather to plea that she seeks help with you, as this would be easier if you dealt with it together. Contact LifeLine on 086 322 322.
