Something is seriously wrong with your mother. What she did to you was inexcusable. And I know what it's like to be beaten to tears, and then not be allowed to have tears and consequently be beaten even harden as a result of the tears she brought about. It's crazy-making, which is why I'm so glad that you're writing about it. Writing can help you to process your feelings; and that can be very difficult when you've been taught that "feeling" is not allowed. If you are still a minor child and still in this abusive environment, please contact Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone about the abuse you are dealing with. They are staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counselors 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. Visit their website by copying & pasting the following URL into your browser: http://www.childhelp.org/get_help

If you are now an adult, please seek out some form of counseling in order to help you deal with the repercussions. You didn't deserve to be abused. You certainly deserve help now that you have. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Jenna, where was your dad in all that? I can't believe that he probably left you in the so-called care of that sick monster of a mother and even allow her to beat and berate you everyday...how dare he! That's not education, that's just torture! Oh, and she is wrong. You are not stupid; you are smart and articulate. You are not a "good for nothing"; you are worthy of love, dignity and respect. Oh, and I can relate; my mom, too, abused me while I was doing my homework. Anyway, you are not to blame for her nearly sadistic behavior; she is to blame because she has problems and chose to take them out on you. You were the child; she was the adult. She had all the power and she misused it over you. Oh, and did I mention that she even set you up for failure? Again, that's not about teaching you skills nor helping you with your homework; it's just all about power and control. She is manipulative and I'm sorry to even believe that she really wanted you to fail just so she could keep controlling you, so the sooner you tell someone about it, the better. Besides the counselling, please tell someone you trust and keep telling until he/she will finally listen to you and help you.

Always believe in your self: Get help: You'll be fine
by: maurice

Jenna: Great you searched for and found Darlene: You will now begin a process of self help but with the help of a counsellor/therapist a good and true friend: I want you to have a friend your own age and gender so you can talk the talk of all girlie stuff and also help each other to grow and mature by being strong for each other: You have made a new beginning a good one at that too by writing down what happened to you at the hands of an unloving, uncaring not so nice Mother to you: She's a monster ok because you were her little girl: she was sadistic, she was cruel, a control freak and a bully of her own flesh and blood: Not a good Mother: Darlene has given you her real words of love: encouragement; affirmeing words to work with and act on from her big womans heart which is full of empathy for the abused child: You are the best, now have the courage to get all the help she knows you need right now Jenna

Where was your father when your mother did this?
by: Ayase paul yukiya

Jenna, your mother is a monster! How could she hurt a lovely young women like you? And crying when your mother still hurts you, she doesn't realize that she was hurting you, and i agree with darlene that your mother was inexcusable. She hurted you for no reason.
I think she didn't understand kids, i think she doesn't know that kids are human beings too. Your mother just thinks that their nothing, but i hope you survive from the abuse. Keep your chin up as a quote would say: Never look back unless you are planning to go that way. As my friend says: 'Hope is in every heart, and letting it out. Keeping hope alive is what matters.'

it means that do not look back at your past and remember the horrible things, just look straight and be happy.
