Thank you for sharing your story and the message that telling is a must. I hope you and your family continue to gain support from one another and that you will continue healing together. As for your sister, she's still too wrapped up in the guilt and shame (unwarranted, of course) of being victimized and how it will affect her life today. Just carry on as you are now. And I hope your father will be removed from society for what's he's done.

my father
by: Sue

Thank you so much, my father has been removed from society for now. He pled guilty to 14 counts against my daughter and recieved a 4 year sentence. He will be up for parole in as little as 15 months. Seems very short to me in relation to what he put us through but that is that law in this province. I am bringing my own charges against him which I hope will cast a shadow on the parole boards view of things. I do take some solace in the fact that he has been listed on the sex offenders registry and that he has been publically exposed in the community where we live so that people finally know him for who he really is.

it goes both ways
by: Anonymous

It goes both ways.

I can remember my dad blocking the door to the room that my brother and I shared when mom went on a tirade and wanted to 'spank' us with a belt.

The sad thing for by brother and I was that when mom had an affair and divorced dad, the courts gave her custody because 'children belong with the mother'.

And people wonder why I don't trust women that remind me of my mother, or why my brother is a womanizer who is afraid to commit to one woman.
