He's not just a druggie and a rapist, he's crossed over into child sexual abuse. The man is a sex offender. The fact that you're still living in that abusive environment and that your mother seems ill-equipped to deal with his abuse and won't step up to protect you tells me you're still in danger. Please contact two different organizations: Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone. 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. And you need to disclose the abuse. Visit their website by copying & pasting the following URL into your browser: http://www.childhelp.org/get_help

The second is the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233). They have advocates available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week who can provide crisis intervention, escape planning, information and referrals to victims or anyone calling on their behalf. Since your mother isn't stepping up, I suggest you make the call. Visit their website by copying & pasting the following URL into your browser: http://www.ndvh.org/

Please tell
by: Anonymous

Lorahli, your so-called dad is a really sadistic beast and he should go back to jail for all those terrible crimes that he committed against you and your mother because you, your mom and even your brother did nothing wrong. Oh, and to brutally destroy your birthday presents and ruin your birthday is a really cowardly thing to do. You are not to blame for his sadistic, disgusting, ignorant behavior; he is to blame because he chose to abuse you. You were the child; he was the adult; he had all the power and only misused it over you, so the sooner you tell, the better. Please tell someone you really trust and keep telling until he/she will finally listen to you and help you.

It might feel scary...

..but PLEASE call those hotlines.
You have to tell to get it to stop, he may be your father but more importantly - he's hurting you. You don't deserve this.
