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

Jennifer, you have every reason to be scared of your father. He's got a history of violence against both you and your mother, yet your mother is not making decisions that are healthy for you and her. You need someone to talk to, someone who can help you. Consider talking with a church elder or a school counsellor, someone you trust. I also suggest you get in touch with Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453). 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 what your father did to you and why you are still afraid.

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

Jennifer, You are 18 years old now. You have the right to make your on decisions. Leave that house if your father is still abusing you and your mom. There are shelters out there to help you. Your father has alot of issues that have nothing to do with you. He is taking his problems and frustrations out on you and your mom. Darlene has a list of help numbers you can call. Please take advantage of the help that is out there...Good luck to you...No one should have to live in fear.

that sucks
by: krissy

you shouldnt still be with your dad ... and i feel for yeah.. but you are old enough to move out and plus you could get your mother out of there.. i personally think that she is scared to do anything .. like get out of there .. because she doesnt want to get hurt but i think that she could and that you could get out of there.. and do something about it .. not just sitting there in your closet, do something if you want him to stop but if you feel like you are in soo much danger then you should call the police ... i really trully think that you should do something or else he will keep doing it .. and im pretty sure that you dont want him to do that anymore ...
get someone to help you .. dont just sit there and handle it you dont nor does anyone deserve that ...

Fear is crippling get away from it, get help
by: maurice

Oh your story is so real Jennifer 3. So many children of families live in fear of there father for generations. from mine and now to yours Jennifer 3. It can cripple one;s spirit if you let it and don't do something about it. Darlene's words are a good place to begin as are the other comments from people who care about you. At 18 years of age you don't need fear as the yardstick to beat yourself with. Go and get help. I know you have at least 1/2 very special people in your life called friend (s) who will help you to get away from the fear you have of your Father being around. Do something about it Jennifer 3. I can do it, I will do it, I must do it for my own good.
