First of all, I'm delighted that you are no longer dealing with this boy in your life. I must also say that your mother has mistakenly brushed off sexual abuse as simple childhood antics; and as a result, has taken away the opportunity for you to get the help you need to deal with the repercussions. Repercussions that may well carry on for a long time. That doesn't make your mother evil or uncaring; it makes her uninformed. There's a huge difference between children who molest other children and children who consent to sexual exploration. I point you toward my page at child sex offenders on this site for a comparison between the two. Both you and your mother would benefit from knowing the difference. Please consider talking to someone you trust about what happened to you at the hands of this boy. Perhaps a trusted teacher or a school counselor. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
