I urge you to contact Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone about the abuse you are still dealing with. 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. You can visit their website by copying & pasting the following URL into your browser: http://www.childhelp.org/get_help

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

Jenn, let's get this clear: ANY put-downs, insults and other forms of degradation that you have experienced are Emotional Child Abuse. Moreover, neglecting you in your young days by leaving the light switched off borders on criminality. It is just such a pity that so many people are unable to understand the mind of a young child and the damage that can be done by leaving someone of five or six in such a state of fear.

You mentioned that you 'start to believe in (those degrading remarks) them'. Please, instead use your strength to realise that people are seldom, if ever, perfect. And some are just plainly sick. They have no idea how their hostility and ignorance causes so much misery that may follow the then helpless children for the rest of their lives. Now is the time to make sure that does not happen to you and Darlene's advice to call that number ? I add my full support. Please do.

Get Help...Fast!

Jenn, what your so-called mom did to you is pathetic and ungrateful. Your mom is truly sadistic because it's wrong to lock you up in a dark room and not let you turn on the light nor come out, let alone knowing that you're afraid of the dark. She is also insane and will someday get her karma because real mothers would never do that. Please call the police and get away from that sadistic sicko of a mother!
