Talk to someone about what is happening to you...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Hannah, no child deserves to be mistreated for any reason, even if they do something that is considered wrong. Even if you had done something that required discipline, what your mother did—what your parents DO—with lashing out at you, screaming and endless hitting, is inappropriate. The way you feel afterward is a clear indication of how wrong it is. But I'm here to tell you that you did nothing wrong, Hannah. Your mother lost control. You did not deserve to be yelled at and slapped around. Don't ever think that when this happens that it's your fault, because it isn't your fault. And it will never be your fault. Your parents are troubled; and they need help for that.

But you need help too. You need help to understand that you are special and precious, in spite of the way you are being treated. Always remember that. You need help to understand that you are worthy. That you are lovable. And that there are people who love you and care about you. Consider talking to a trusted teacher, or your school counsellor. Perhaps the mother of a dear friend is someone you can confide in. Also, consider contacting Kids Helpline in Canada at 1-800-668-6868. They are staffed with professionally trained counsellors who will help you with your options. You can remain anonymous, if you decide that you don't want them to know who you are. They are not a reporting agency, but if you give them identifying information that includes your name and an address or phone number, they are legally obligated to report any disclosures of abuse.

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

How Could They?!
by: Anonymous

Hannah, how dare they do such a thing like that to you. You did nothing wrong. My parents did slightly similar stuff to me for even the smallest reasons, too. Your parents are not right in their minds, and they really need help...but you need help, too. Darlene is right, Hannah. The sooner you tell someone about it, the better, so please tell someone before it's too late. Don't wait too long!

I love me may be hard to say now but in time you will.
by: maurice

Hannah 2. It may not be the time to ask you to say I am beautiful but that is exactly is what I am asking you to do. I believe in the beauty in each child born and you are no exception to that. right now you are beginning to make a sense of people who abused you, treated you wrong, as an innocent child, beating you, leaving scars on that beautiful tender skin of your body. Oh Hannah 2. please just read slowly over and over again Darlene's ever caring words to you. I guarantee if you do with the help of the 1--2--3
buddies/friends of your own age and equally the same number of adults that you can talk to and tell you will begin to see there is a life for you after ABUSE. Sadly leaving and letting of what your mother/father did to you will take time, but you must make a beginning. Darlene Loves you. we all love you for being ever so brave in telling your story. It's a start don't go back now move onwards and upwards. I'M SPECIAL, I LOVE ME, I CAN MAKE THIS BODY OF MINE BEAUTIFUL BY SAYING I AM UNIQUE IN MY OWN RIGHT.
