Telling your friends will not get you the help you need. This man will continue to sexually offend you until you speak out to people who can actually help you. Please tell your parents or another adult, perhaps a school counsellor or a trusted teacher. I also strongly suggest you contact ChildLine on 0800 1111.

I would call Child-help National Child Abuse Hotline 1-800-4-A-CHILD. They have skilled counselors and staff that could just listen or help you in any way you think needs to be done. Just get help, I'm 23 now and wish I would have told somebody, but even know people I have told think I'm lying. I hope this helps and good luck.

From Darlene - Webmaster: Anonymous, I know you want to help, but Courtney is from England, therefore the Child Help Hotline is not the number for her to call. I did provide her with the number for England.
