Child Abuse Story From Jessica:

Well, one day I went over to my god sister's house. It was over the summer, and I stayed there because my dad was working. It turned out that he was staring at my breasts when we were walking, and my god sister told me that. He slid his hand across them, and it bothers me every time I think about it.

Another problem I have is with my mom. I live with my dad because my parents separated because my mom was addicted to drugs, and I've heard she was cheating on him. I was mad when this happened, and I know my mom is guilty but she acts innocent and it bothers me so much!! Please someone help me. I'm scared...

FROM DARLENE - PLEASE NOTE: I receive many letters from children and youth who are in abusive situations. All of them ask me to help them. I cannot personally help any child or youth who is currently dealing with abuse when I don't have a definitive way to identify them or where they live--it turns out that an e-mail address is not enough for Social Services to locate a child.

After receiving her story submission, I wrote Jessica. I urged her to contact Child Help USA, as I advise ALL children and youth who write me of their abuse.

Child Help can be reached at 1-800-4-A-CHILD.
