Woah, where did this diagnosis come from? Why do people feel a need to pathologize the normal expression of sexuality? At worst, the girl was getting some cheap thrills. She has a right to cheap thrills.

But she tried to conceal it from her parents. That doesn't sound like a cry for attention to me.

I don't think the father is in "denial." Remember that we are hearing just one of three (possibly more) sides of the story.

I didn't see any indication that the girl's father is "absent." As a physician, he is probably *busy*, but that is a far cry from absent.

I think you might be projecting some of your own stuff onto this story.

Umm, I think this is premature. Cybersex does not equate to sexual molestation. I see no indication that this girl is being or has been sexually molested either.

Just what sort of "intervention" did you have in mind? Does this involve removing the girl from her home, having her committed to an institution, brainwashing, all of the above, ...?
