First of all, what is happening and has happened in your home is reprehensible. You parents are truly sick and twisted. Secondly, I can understand why you believe you're getting love etc from this gang; they are providing you with what you didn't get at home. But there will come a time when you realize that it isn't love you are getting from them. Gangs are all about control and manipulation. They prey on young people and their vulnerabilities by giving them a sense of belonging and "family", but in exchange for loyalty. Loyalty to a gang is a price that is far beyond the definition of the word. You are in danger with this gang, even though they seem like the very thing that your parents are not. You're worthy of much more than what a gang will ultimately bring your way. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

I'm sorry

Cheyenne, I can't believe that your mom would abandon you to the so-called care of that sick monster of a father, relinquish control to him and even give him free reign to beat you and berate you everyday. How dare she! Shame on her for running away from you all the time instead of protecting you from that beast! Oh, and she is just as sadistic as her equally sadistic husband! If they ever hurt you again, please tell someone you really trust!

Cheyenne, what a brave teenager you've been to search for and find Darlene's site: Your cry for loving, caring understanding words of help and encouragement: Your so called parents are by deffinition to love and cherish you and their children: Alas you are not finding what this gang seem to be offering you in your home: Don't be fooled by them they will make you feel needed and wanted but use you and control you: Your self esteem and dignity is to be someone in your own right is what you should be seeking for: Try and have a real friend who will stand by you, who is your age and gender that you can really talk to and who will be strong with you to get real advice and help: I am sure you like and know a kind teacher at your school or there may be a school counsellor: Speak out all you have shared here on Darlene's site: Safe Haven for all her many visitors: you have begun a process of telling and wanting help: Darlene always speaks from her heart to each of her visitors personally to their hearts and minds: She sure has given you encourageing words to act on: You are an intelligent thinking adolecent: Think for yourself: do for yourself what you know is the best for yourself: Have a healthy mind in a healthy body: this may be a thing your so called gang friends even think about: You get out there taking part with your class mates and friends taking part in team sports and doing your Physical Education programme in your school: Value and respect your body and yourself: Be in charge of your own destiny in life: Your Bad parents especially that beast of a father won't help you: so you need real caring friends around you and you'll have them in your team mates I assure you: You'll be a winner and you'll think positive about all you do and say about yourself: Love the real me in you looking out at you from the mirror: Give yourself a real cuddly hug from time to time and say I love me:

In my opinion i would say that i f we respect children and be friendly with them sepecially mothers that spend most of times with their children that would be good for our children future and also the children doesn't feel sad and disappointment home is a better place for kids if we be nice with our children with out hitting them and abuse them physically why the children find the friend that had bad habbites like takeing drugs, drinking alchocol, or spend their best times with thes desgusting peoples in their lives.
