Concerned for you.
by: Terese

Dear Jenna,

I read your story and I want you to know that I think you are very brave to share what has happened.

If I was nearby (if I was a good neighbour or teacher), I would try to protect you. I am relieved you have a kind, caring friend you can confide in and trust.

Jenna, it is important for you to seek help. I am concerned for you and I hope you will be safe, soon...

Truly, Terese

im 41 and was abused by my stepfather from ages 4-15. came across your story.not sure how old it is,u say your 11?
well u also say u are not affected by me when you get older it will affect you.
you need to call the police or childline help NOW.
i never told the police about my abuser,in fact i still live with him.
he abused me and raped my mum.she dont know about me.and i cant tell her,im very scared.and u think hey your 41?well yes.and i cant tell anyone,and anyway wheres the evidence?it was like over 30 years ago.
people say u can still go to the police even if it was years ago.
but i just cant do it.
my suggestion to u is go tell the police or someone now.or you may regret it later in life,like i have,my life has been ruined by this mosnter,hes also a stepfather.who had 5 children,surpisingly he has has no contact with any of them,thats over 30 years ago to,my guess is he abused at leat one if not all of them.
please,please go to the police,go with your friend,and stop this monster before he does it to other girls or boys.these people need to be stopped.
i hope you do the right will be better you do it now rather than later,and let him ruin your life.please do something,coz i didnt and i regret it now big will affect you later in life i can promise you,u mmay not even relaise how but it will.

Be Brave: Be strong. tell on him Stop him hurting You
by: maurice

Jenna I dread hearing about step-fathers abuse of the innocent and the vunerable: You are not his child but still he abused you as well as his own: He is a beast of a man: Tell on him: no child deserves to be abused and you and your siblings are no exception to that: Jenna you deserve to be loved and cherished, your childhood innocence and dignity valued and respected: You are a very courageous girl to search for and find Darlene's site: She has given you heartfeeling words to work on: Please have the courage and be brave and tell on him: Also stay safe and be safe: I would almost be right if I said you had a school friend or two that you share your little and big secrets with: Let them help you: hold your hand and support you to talk with a school counsellor or a teacher that is nice and caring: Please think about taking part in team sports and your physical Education program at school: There is safety in numbers too: So don't be afraid I am sure your Mom will understand if you tell her what he is doing: Parents generally don't let their older children sleep with them and allow their children the privacy of having their own bed and room: so you sleeping with that molester of a step father was not right: Jenna, be safe: Now you know anyone touching you in your intimate parts is wrong don't let another do harm to you: You are one very special and brave child: Darlene gave you loving advice she wants you to be safe:
