The best way to protect your sister is to report your father...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Angelica, I'm going to be upfront with you. I know you think you are helping your 9-year-old sister, but you are not protecting her by not telling. She is at risk for being sexually assaulted by your father. She is probably already being molested by him. I know you don't want her to suffer. Report what this man did to you, otherwise your sister WILL be, if she hasn't already been, molested by him. Angelica, sex offenders do not change their ways until they are stopped. I'm sure you'd rather have your sister safe than to have her endure molestation. You cannot protect her because you cannot always be with her.

Your psychologist has a legal and moral obligation to report what she knows and/or suspects; which has me questioning why she isn't reporting the fact that other members of your family are at risk.

And while I thank you for sharing your stories with my visitors and me, Angelica, no one here can really help you or your sister. I can only provide a safe place for you to disclose and share, and the possibility of visitor comments. But the latter is not a guarantee. Your psychologist is in a far better position to help you than I am or than anyone who visits here is. Please turn to her, or contact the number I've given you in another posting: Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453). The counsellors there can help you with options.

Do the right thing, Angelica, report what your father is: a sex offender of children. That's the best way to ensure your sister's safety. It wouldn't surprise me for one or two of my adult contributors to respond here, contributors who have in the past tried to protect their siblings in much the same way you are, contributors who have learned that in the end they were unable to protect their siblings.

continue being a brave and strong person for yourself
by: maurice

Oh Angelica 1. know you are a survivor of abuse as you have told Darlene and her many visitors. great at 18 you have acknowledged that. You mus be strong now, not alone for yourself but for your sister too. She is now indanger as you were, please love her enough not to let what happened you happen her. Darlene has given you very loving/caring words of encouragemnet and support in how you should tell someone about that so called Father that raped you, made your small innocent body feel that awful hurt and pain. making you feel dirty. Angelica 1. journeying with
the phychologist should give you real help in telling people in authority who can remove your Father from your life and that of your sisters. You know how you had emotional breakdown because of what he did to you. It is very painful for you telling the phychologist the details of waht happened to you. Think about it Angelica 1. and ask yourself Do I want my lovely small sister to go through what I have??? It may not be easy for you, please take Darlene's professional love words of support and the right thing for you to do to heart. She knows best. She's good and is most understanding of how hard it is is for you right now. She really can emphatise with You as she too went through the pain of being abused.

Get him out of your house!
by: Judy

I feel your pain and I will continue to pray for you. Is there a way to get him out of your house? If he is not on the lease - there is a way because surely your sister may be next. I just wish I was a close friend of yours and had the right to put him out because I would. This makes me sad and angry that you and your sister have to deal with such but anger never solves a situation so just remain confident and strong. You are stronger than your realize. Please know that there are those of us out here that care and we are praying for you - we are with you :)

Lovingly watched over by Darlene who minds each one of her visitors with her watchful eye on all comments. I mean what I say you know now that you were abused by a totally uncaring/unloving Father. You can put the loving words of advice from Darlene into pratise. We all support her loving words to you because we too care and love you. Set your mind to doing it and you will with the help of your trusted friends to help you.
