You MUST TELL someone...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Nothing will change unless you tell someone, Nancy. You said you don't trust anyone. If you don't trust your parents or anyone at school, like a teacher or a counsellor or a sports coach, then I urge you contact Kids Helpline in Canada at 1-800-668-6868. They are staffed with professionally trained counsellors who will help you. You don't have to give your name if you don't want to. They are not a reporting agency for child abuse, but if you decide to give them information like your name and an address or phone number, by law they have to report what you tell them about the abuse. You deserve to feel safe, Nancy. You don't deserve to live being scared all the time. So please, pick up the phone and call Kids Helpline. They're there to help you through this terrible time.

Tell someone today...
by: Linda Settles

Nancy,
I know it is hard to tell someone. Sometimes we are afraid we won't be believed, or that someone will think it is our fault. Sometimes we are afraid that the person who violated us will be mad. Think of it this way, honey, if you tell and any of that 'stuff' happens, there are many other people who care about you and are willing to help. People who do not live in your home and are not related to your brother. You can get help. Do it before things get worse. I hope you find the courage to tell someone today.

Tell them
by: Hayley

Hi Nancy, how are you feeling today? It's perfectly normal to be wary of telling anyone, or not trusting anyone, but some how and at some time you do need to talk. You have been suffering in silence for too long. Are you ashamed of what is happening to you? If so, don't be because it's your brother's fault, not yours. If it's any consolation, I still don't trust people now and thanks to a land lord taking advantage of me for some time, I have a real fear of being tickled. a friend tickled me on Friday and I nearly screeched the hospital down. I later admitted that I have a fear of being tickled. I am still a little jumpy, around people I don't know but I am getting more confident. It's strange to think that any of that is possible, but it is. You have been strong enough to cope for this long, and you have done that on your own. When you have got the courage to confide in someone you trust, it will get easier. While I am still being "rehabilitated", I am feeling infintely more calm.

You're so strong Nancy, you can get over this, it doesn't take a few days like getting over a cold, but with friendship, help, compassion and support, it is a mountain that you can get over. Good luck kid, we're with you all the way

have courage
by: chanty

nancy you need to find the strength and courage to come out with this, it is not right!! you can not let this continue it is just going to get worse, you are a child, you shouldnt have anyone and least of all your brother doing these things to you. you are a child, who should be playing in the garden with your dolls and just being a child, yet your innocence has been stripped from you, you are going to loose your sense of self and slowly your identity and grow up into a person who hates and will not trust anyone, you need to come out and stop this now you need to save yourself....

TELL NOW
by: Abuse Kid

Tell your mom RIGHT NOW. Tell anyone. YOUR BROTHER HAS NO RIGHT TO DO THAT. He can't get away with this. Go get help. This site should not be the only thing you tell about this. There has to be justice because what he was doing was sick and wrong. FIGHT FOR YOURSELF.
