Justifiable anger...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Samantha, you have so much justifiable anger, but there isn't anyone who visits this site who can give you the help you really need, Samantha. And you NEED help, but you must reach out for it. While I thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me, and while I understand that sharing your story can be therapeutic, you MUST tell someone who really can help you. My goodness, you deserve that kind of help. I strongly urge you to contact Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone about the horrific abuse you are 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. And you SHOULD report. If you don't tell, nothing can change, Samantha. And you deserve change. You deserve to have a loving and nurturing environment. You deserve dignity and respect. You DO NOT deserve to be mistreated. Please call Child Help today. Call them from school so you're in a safe place to talk. Just call them.

Please Listen.........
by: Judy

Hi Samantha - Please listen to Darlene and Maurice. You need to call the number or go to a trusted adult so that you may get help for you and your sister. Do it now so that you don't wait until later and only find that you would have gotten help sooner if you had of told someone. Just because you are a minor does not mean that your mother's boyfriend can't or won't do anything to you - do not take that chance. What world is your mother living in? I ask because whatever world it is she must be the only one living in it because she certainly seems very selfish and self-absorbed - she has to see what is happening to her children. No fault of yours or your sisters. Please listen, listen, and act on the advice given to you - I can't stress that enough. Stay strong and good luck! Judy
