I care and so do others...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Sam'Lee, your mother sounds like a very angry person, an angry person who seems to be taking out her hostilities on you. And given what happened when you called the police, I can certainly understand why you don't trust the authorities. But if you are still being abused—and even if you're not—please contact Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone about what 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 (to Child Protective Services, not the police) if you decide to disclose the abuse. You certainly deserve to have someone listen to you. You'll find there are many people who want to help you, but you'll have to reach out to them first.

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

a walk towards light....
by: Abinayah

Dear Sam? Lee,
You seem to be affected a lot by the behavior of your mother.
As a child, you have been abused a lot and it is time for you to take the right decision.
We as citizens and humans have all the right to live in this world and thus we have been provided with a wonderful life to live.
We need to make sure that no one can spoil our life.
Obstacles will come in our way. Let us not make it an obstruction for our goals.
You can contact the child help for further assistance.
You have remained silent for long, voice your agony- the world will hear you.
You have a lot of people who care for you and first try to build up your self-confidence.
All the best for your bright future.

Your friend,
abinayah

A lot of crimes committed...and the authorities that didn't care
by: Francine

Sam'Lee, what your so-called mom did to you was and still is EXTREMELY pathetic and EXTREMELY ungrateful. And when you tried to correct her about "breakfast" by telling her that that "breakfast" was literally leftovers from the other night, she BRUTALLY slammed your head against the dinner table...As for the police that you called on her, he should've seen those red flags of abuse. Shame on him for dropping the ball! You might want to tell a trusted adult, such as a teacher, church member, counsellor, therapist, principal, pick an adult. No one ever deserves to live this way. I will pray fr you.

stay strong

Sam'Lee, i think you are amazing to get through all this. Many people have this happen to them, but you are by far the strongest. Although you may think no one cares, you just have to find the right people who do(like a counselor). Abuse happens to many people and needs to be stopped. I think from this experience you can grow stronger and help other abused children get through whatever the need to get through. Telling someone really does help. Your mother CANNOT get away with this and neither can other people who abuse someone.
