Question
when i was young i 11-13,,,just guessing as I'm 55 now, i had contact with my cousin and sister as far rubbing my privates on them...they were 8-9 years old....now 43 years later I'm being called a sexual predator by my family because of custody battle of my niece. i have raised 6 kids between me and my wife 3 girls 3 boys been, involved with youth sports for boys and girls. now my family is bringing this out again....even though it was brought out 30 years ago....i wondering was  this a hormonal issue...

did i do anything that other young boys did around that age.

Answer
Bob,

I'm on your side for this one. Puberty has a lot of pitfalls and perils, much of them are hormonally-driven. If this was such a big deal, they would have/should have done something about it way back then. At that age, you wouldn't have been prosecuted, in most states or places anywhere.

I think any mental health professional would clear you of any wrong-doing or "predatory" tendencies.
