There is someone to talk to
by: Darlene Barriere

Amanda, even if it's only for a few more years, things can get worse for you. I strongly urge you to contact Child Help USA. They are not a reporting agency. They are staffed with trained professional counsellors who are available 24/7. The number is 1-800-4-A-CHILD. Call them. You shouldn't have to deal with this alone. You shouldn't have to deal with this at all.

i know how u feel...
by: Anonymous

wow it feels like we are going through the same thing without the hitting.But i have a special place,I look to my friends for comfort and i talk to them about it.I also would talk to my boyfriend about it also. He has friends going through the same thing.Keep your head up and soon it will be over.Im only 15 years old and i am turning 16 this november. Whenever im crying or feel sad i remember that i am older and I turn 18 before my younger sister does.Not only that you will be considered an adult before she does.Remember,karma will get to them and you have your life ahead of you.Its gonna be ok.Just pray,and know you are not alone.

You need to tell the police. Do something about it and have your dad get custody of you so you can get out of that situation. Get emancipated. I am 15 and am going to get emacipated if my biological mom cant get custody of me. Do something about it I lost my baby because of this. Tell someone or runaway if the police find you tell them whats going on. Runaway to your dads house and he can tell the polica and they will believe him. Its not your fault whats happening. They are the dumb ones. lol. Just find some one to tell and get outta that situation. I am. I wish you GOODLUCK.

If you continue to include your personal mailing address on this site, I will ban you outright from leaving comments. What you are doing is unsafe and could lead to deadly consequences for you. There's a very good reason I strictly prohibit the inclusion of personal information on this site. At 15 years of age, you have no idea who will pick up that address; you have no idea what kind of perverted people are out there and what they will do with that information. As owner and webmaster of this child abuse site, there is a great deal of responsibility attached to keeping my visitors safe; and I take that responsibility very seriously. Please refrain from including your personal information, or I will be forced to take action. Thank you.

There is always gonna be someone there for you! I know how you feel
by: Anonymous

Im sort of going through the same experience that you are. Im going through an emotional abuse kind of thing. I learned that you always have someone to talk to or to go to. You can sit back and let things like this happen to you. In between those few year that you have to go, anything could happen. It could effect the rest of your life. You can talk to a teacher, counslor, a friend, a friends mother... there is someone that you can reach out to, and they will help you. Those fights are not you're fault. The best thing for you to do is reach out to someone today and get help!
