Firstly, my condolences over the loss of both your grandfather and grandmother. Sounds as though they were such a positive influence in your life. Remember them that way.

Secondly, I know you're worried about your little brother. But if you don't disclose what's happening in your environment now, both you and your brother will be in more danger as time goes on. You are both at high risk for serious injury. And you can't always be there to protect your brother. The fact that your mother has pulled a knife on you tells me how unstable and dangerous she is. Please, for your sake and that of your helpless little brother, contact Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453). They are staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counsellors who will listen to you. They are not a reporting agency, although they can help you through the process of reporting if you decide to disclose the abuse; and you need to disclose the abuse.

You're worthy of so much more than what you are getting with your mother, Aj. She's deeply troubled, messed up in the head. This is not about YOU; it's all about HER. There is nothing wrong with you. You are loveable and worthy of dignity and respect. And though she can't find that truth because of her own twisted way of thinking, you must find it for yourself. Then call the number above. Doing so could save not only your life, but that of your little brother. People are out there who can help, but you must reach out first. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

The Horror
by: Anonymous

Aj, you were given a raw, crappy deal because your mother and her boyfriend are so twisted and messed up in their own ways of thinking that they don't even know how to take care of themselves, let alone be parents to you and your brother. They don't know how to love even themselves; all they ever knew is hate, so they should've known better and loved and cherished you. Oh, and slapping you around for crying is out of line and, in fact, can only make things worse because everybody cries...even 6-year-old kids cry...and hitting somebody for crying only makes him/her cry even more. Oh, and your so-called mom is wrong. You are not useless; you are not stupid;you are not dumb; you are smart and articulate. You are not unlovable; you are lovable. You are not a bad kid; you are not ugly; you are a good and beautiful person. You are not an embarrassment; you are an asset. You are not a mistake; you are a miracle. You are not worthless; you are worthy of love, dignity and respect, all of which you were sadistically denied of. Your mother...I can't even believe that she would let her slimy beast of a boyfriend beat and berate you or your brother everyday...I hate women who choose men over their own children because children should always come first. Oh, and pulling out a knife on you is a cowardly thing to do because only cowards would do such things to such an innocent, helpless little girl you once were. Oh, and you are not to blame for their messed up behavior; they are to blame because they chose to abuse, torture and berate you. You were the child; they were the adults; they had all the power and they only misused it over you, so the sooner you tell, the better. Darlene is right! Please get away from this poisonous "family" of yours (and take your brother with you), tell someone you really trust and keep telling until he/she will finally listen to you and help you. Oh, and don't ever let those ignorant, sadistic beasts destroy you; please look into reporting them.

thank you.

You guys are right about how I should report them. Thank you for the compliments. I've never really been told that so they are always nice to hear. To be truthful I started tearing up when I read both of your post. I've never had someone really care, its new to me and feels great. Soon I will be able to get out of here and I WILL be taking my brother. I haven't the faintest idea as to where I will go but I will NOT live with them nor will my little brother. Talking this out has helped with my own self mutilation I feel like someone is finally hearing my voice. Thank you both.
