Read Deidre’s personal replies to today’s problems
DEAR DEIDRE: ONE day I felt ill and came home early from college only to walk in and find my dad naked, romping with my sister’s boyfriend.
I’m a 17-year-old guy. I let myself into the house and could hear strange groans and noises upstairs. I went quietly up and discovered the noises were coming from my parents’ bedroom.
My dad is 48 and my sister’s boyfriend is 23. The door was not fully shut so I saw through the gap. It was obvious what was going on.
I was shocked and upset and didn’t know what to do. I went quietly back downstairs and let myself out. I went to my auntie’s and said nothing about what I’d seen.
Do I tell my mum or my sister what I’ve seen or just live with it?
DEIDRE SAYS: Spilling the beans in a situation like this can have unexpected repercussions but of course it’s disturbing for you.
Tell your dad what you saw and how upset you were. It should give him a shock and I hope he’ll realise he must stop this straight away.
