Child Abuse Story From Nathalie:

I am 14 yrs old and i live with my aunt which is currently taking care of me but my grandma has my full custody when i do something she doesn’t like or that SHE feels is wrong she tells me she is one step away from hiting me to death i still try to tell her that i still love her. one day I accidentally broke one of her expensive $60 glasswares and she pushed me against the bed and got a belt and hit me everywhere ... in the face, stomach, legs, back, even in my neck ... for a week i tried to hide all the streak marks along my whole body and she told me that i better keep quiet about it.  one time when i was 10 she came  and slapped me across the mouth. i called the police. but they did nothing to help me.
