It is child abuse
by: Darlene Barriere

Yes, Kelsey, what you suffered through with your mother was child abuse. It was emotional abuse. If you go onto my types of emotional abuse page, you'll find more information about this form of abuse.

What happened to you with the boy who lived on your street was abuse, however, because he was a little boy, it's not as clear cut. You mentioned knowing why (you suspect he was molested by a neighbourhood man). Regardless of whether or not the legal system would call it abuse, you are still having to deal with the residual. I hope you are able to speak with someone you trust about all this.

Sympathy
by: Francine

I may not know you well, but I'm sorry about what you went through cuz you know, my parents had done the same thing to me before. I'm also sorry about what your mom did to you.

It's not bad now. Like now we get in fights about mostly teenage stuff, cause I normally rebel a lot. I don't think what Jade or Shawn did really effected me now, because it happened so long ago that I honestly don't really remember much of it. I know my mom loves me and all, it's just her anger that gets the best of her at times. Pfft, now I feel like I'm blaming myself, but I'm not.
