DEAR THERAPIST: My Daughter Sleeps With Men For Money

0

My daughter sleeps with men for money and it is breaking my heart.

She just turned 20 and she told me she had an evening job at some club in Portmore. I always told her to be careful and I asked to see where she work but she never told me.

I found out later that she isn’t working at that club and instead she is hanging outside that place and hooking up with men, having sex for little money. I say this because she is always broke. She sleeps in the day but “work” in the night. I am worried about her. I want to speak to her but I am afraid.

Dear Afraid,

Since your daughter is not underaged, there’s not real action you can take. She is consenting to having sex with these men for money. I think however you can raise your concern with her, let her know how you feel and the implications to being a prostitute.

Let her know there are diseases and with all what’s going on, surely you can’t trust every man who waves a dollar at you. This is a dangerous life.

Speak with her and hope that she decides to take on another profession.
