While you were definitely hurt and dealt with assaultive and inappropriately sexualized behaviour from these boys, what happened to you does not fall under the strict definition of "child abuse". That doesn't make the pain of it any less; and please don't think I'm trying to invalidate what you endured. And to my other visitors, please don't write me with your objections; I am simply going by the "legal" definition of child abuse here. I don't write the laws. Assault is one thing; child abuse is quite another. I don't generally post non-child abuse stories, but I've made a single exception here.

Christina, I do hope you'll tell the whole story to someone who can help you. Plus the fact that these boys are seriously troubled; they've likely been abused in similar ways themselves. They WILL hurt someone else if at least one of their victims does not speak out. And as they get older and stronger, their assaultive behaviour will likely escalate. Tell someone. You and your brother deserve help for what you've been through. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Always believe in your self: Get help: You'll be fine
by: maurice

Christina: Truly remarkable: Darlene has allowed your story on here to educate many of us who like-wise were assaulted as children and older teens but this would not be regarded as child abuse by law: Darlene knows best and wants what is the best for each of her visitors: Her loving advice to you for the sake of yourself and your brother is get help: Telling and trusting someone with your real life story at the hands of those boys is really important: You may be helping them too to get help so that they won't harm another innocent vunerable child or children as they did you as young adults: Christina: I know you'll do what is the best for all concerned: Some form of counselling or telling of your story to a caring teacher or school counsellor may be a place to begin: Hi at 14 you sure can begin having a healthy mind in a healthy body: so begin TODAY to take part in The Schools Physical Education Program: Play team sports; have fun and games with your friends and fellow students: There is safety in numbers so you will make real and natural friends in your team mates with plenty of aquainatances to make you smile when you meet: Little brother will follow your example so he'll have a healthy mind in a healthy body too: Read Dalene's comment, you are highly intelligent you'll make sense of her loving encourageing words to you: Be safe: Stay safe: Always believe in yourself: Celebrate YOU: Hi I'm worth celebrating I am worth everything I'm special and I am the best: I love me: a big hug and cuddle Christina of yourself and indeed your brother:
