I hope you're now in a safe place. If not, please report what has happened to you. Consider contacting Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone about the abuse. They are staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counsellors who will listen to you. They are not a reporting agency, although they can help you through the process of reporting if you decide to disclose the abuse. You can visit their website by copying & pasting the following URL into your browser: http://www.childhelp.org/get_help

I also hope you are in some form of counseling in order to help you deal with what you endured. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Monsters for parents
by: Anonymous

Janise, what your so-called mom and her slimy boyfriend did to you is pathetic and ungrateful because they are really sick, twisted, cruel and sadistic in their own ways of thinking...not to mention control freaks with uneducated and ignorant minds. That sicko of a mother did not deserve to have such a beautiful daughter like you; you didn't deserve to have such an uncaring, uneducated, unloving, ignorant, barbaric, cruel, criminally insane, psychotic, sadistic mother; you didn't deserve to have such a disgusting pervert who raped you. Oh, and burning you with a hot iron and laughing at you while you were in pain really shows me how uneducated, ignorant and sadistic that beast of a mother really is. Oh, and I am just as disgusted by the idea that she chose to watch her beast of a boyfriend rape you; in fact, I hate women who choose men over their own children because children should always come first. That sadistic mother of yours should go to prison with her slimy boyfriend for all those terrible crimes that they committed against you, so the sooner you tell someone about it, the better. Please tell someone you really trust, such as a friend, teacher, principal, church member, a friend's parents, a sympathetic grandma/grandpa/aunt/uncle/cousin, etc. Oh, and where is your dad in all this? Like I said, tell someone and keep telling until they will finally listen to you.

no one noticed?
by: My Two Cents

I hope you can answer this question for me. I ask because I work in a profession where I might see these injuries.

How did your mom hide the severe physical abuse (burned with irons!?) From teachers, your friends, relatives, doctors, etc? I don't know if you lived in Hawaii while this was happening, but unless you were wearing ski pants and a winter parka, winter clothes like turtleneck sweaters, wouldn't people see the bruising, the scars, and all?

I really hope you can comment on that, or someone else. There needs to be more awareness of how abusers hide this activity so teachers and other people can catch it.

Many thanx!

Strong Woman You Are.
by: Anonymous

You are strong, beautiful, and great, inside and out. I hope you are in a better place than the living hell that you were in. No one, not a single child, deserves such treatment. You are the one and only Janise, you are you. You are as precious and valuable as any worthy humankind. You are strong for what you have went through and I am sorry to hear about your sadistic mother and your psycho step father. But, you have a choice. You can call some1: hotline, trusted adult, a friend. You are not alone. This may be one of the only ways to your emancipation ofrom this terrible environment.

The 2 million Question
by: maurice

My two cents: you are so close to the bone being ever so naturally gifted to speak the truth from your heart: Janise: you certainly were the victim of a very twisted Mother: She sure was a sadistic brute and your tender innocent childs/adolecent body has the proof of her cruelty on you: What you endured at her hands is totally inhuman and espeially a woman doing her barbaric beatings: My two cents she has a very natural heart and her comment and question why did people around you not notice and act on your behalf: I know from my spankings and beatings in school that PE and team coaches knew when they observed us undressing and showering after games that our bottom were bruised and marked but just treated as part of the then school system: As for us boys we justed accepted that was the norm of discipline at the school: Many a time I noticed other boys when playing for my Local Team at home bottoms marked where there parents (fathers in particular) had used instruments to beat their children: My two cents raises a real question: Thank you for your story which evoked her Question: Continue to heal and love your beautiful self: Even today's society alows allot of abuse and sexual trafficking of the innocent: without questioning:

Janise, survive.
by: Chiiletta Georgeson

Janise i read your story and i was shocked to see that your mother would laugh at you seeing you in pain and her boyfriend is slimy!

Your mother is a monster, I think she doesn't understand kids that well. I say she got pregnant at age 14 and didn't know how to take care of a child.

From Darlene - Webmaster: You were right when you said I would delete some of what you wrote, Chiletta. I want to be very clear here: you have no right to pass judgment or to pass along your beliefs on this site. It is not a democratic process here; this is a safe haven for people who have been abused to say what happened to them as a result of abuse. I set it up that way and it will always be that way as long as I continue to operate the site. If you can't deal with the realities of that, then I suggest you don't comment. If you continue to write such statements in the future, I will have no choice but to ban you from making further comments. I thank you for your understanding.
