A number to call...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Giorgia, your mother knows what she did to you was wrong; otherwise, she would not have told you not to tell. And I can understand why you didn't tell. But let me clear, you did not—and DO NOT—deserve to be beaten. When your mother does this, she is out of control. This is about her inability to cope. This is not about you, Giorgia. She is the one with the problem. You are not to blame here, so don't for one second feel guilt or shame. This wasn't—ISN'T— your fault. You need help with this. Please contact ChildLine on 0800 1111 in order to talk to someone about what you are dealing with. Check out their website at www.donthideit.com for more information about them and what they can do to help. You deserve that kind of help, Giorgia. You don't deserve to be mistreated.

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

You have found friends and a very understanding loving understandind woman in i Darlene
by: Maurice

Hi Giorgia, great you found Darlen's site. She know best and is very qualified to share her loving, caring, understanding professional word of support for you. I know you are sitting there reading her words of encouragement, do try to find a loving caring friend to share your feeling with. I know your age group have close mates that you trust with you life. Ask them to be a true friend and stand by you while you get help. You know what your mam done was terribily wrong, vindictive and cruel to a lovely tender hearted child/teenager. Gentle/sensitve and with great feelings of hurt and pain when you are hit by an uncaring mother. Giorgia, be brave, be strong for yourself your of age now to know what is truly the best for you.Love yourself, please do, be gentle on your body soothe away those awful sights of the after effects of the beating you received from an adult, bigger/bully and certainly not a loving caring Mother to you. There's always a genuine friend around for you to trust seek him/her out.

Hey Giorgia, you got to tell someone. Tell a teacher, a friend, a relative, someone you trust, someone safe. You don't deswerve to be hit like that. Get help. Even if your mom begs you not to tell, Tell. She needs help too. Do it for you. Do it for her. Praying for you. Sarah

The value of a smiling face Giorgia
by: Maurice

Is'nt Darlene's smiling face the most welcoming sight when one open's up www.child-abuse-effects.com. For me it gives me a sense of a sense tranquility, of peace, of serenity. I am sure Giorgia you with me and all her many visitors get a gee up, go on tell me our story and begin your the healing process of your abuse. Reading the comment of another visitor I was made feel more at home on Darlen's site knowing I am human and I make mistakes. It was from another caring, undersatanding Visitor to Her site. Giorgia, we all want the best for you, even Sarah speaks for us when she encourages you to get help. By doing so you will not only be helping yourself but your mam as well. A lovely thought.Giorgia I will never condone people who use innocent children/teenagers/adolecents.to be cruel to with whatever type of abuse they carry out on them. Never ever, because our abusers are no idiots and they know what they are doing by abusing us. I have no sympathy for them. I will always try to understand and forgive them but point out to them all the time they did me. you and the many others an injustice during our very vunerable and innocent years. We are the sufferers of their selfishness. I Love Me now Giorgia bcause I found a friend (s) whom I told how I was feeling after what happened to me. I know the power of a true and genuine friend. That added to me talking with professional people makes me beautiful again in my own eyes. Giorgia I want the same for you.

hi everyone,im jus going to say thankyou for your support, ive never had people who were behind me 100 %, i really am scared to say somethink, in case wa my whole family might think of me especialy my dad im realy realy scared wa hel say or do, my dad grabbed me on the troat today because i was so angry with him, i told him to get a job, so we could all eat and my lil brother needed milk.. my neck is realy sore right now, i dont like it wen social services come they always make it worser for me as soon as they leave its jus back to normal, someone plzz wa can i do

From Darlene: Giorgia, as much as so many would like to help, other than to provide encouragement, no one who visits this site can offer the kind of help you really need. The number and website address I offered in my comments above is not Social Services. They are in place to help children and adolescents like you. Please contact them to find out about your options: ChildLine on 0800 1111 Their website gives more details: www.donthideit.com

You are not alone
by: Bravebird

I'm sure this feels like the most lonely place to be for you. You aren't alone. You reached out for help by posting your experiences. I promise you this will not last forever you will have good memories. You will have whole days of joy. You will feel loved. You can get help. It takes courage and being able to feel the fear and do it anyway but it is worth it. You deserve LOVE not slaps and having to make-up lies and excuses for some one else's problem. Know you deserve good, its worth fighting for! I feel your pain in my heart and see good can come your way. It can and It will. : )
