My Friend is Suffering Child Abuse
I am 14. My best friend is getting physically abused by her father. Her dad is not the most caring person when he is not drinking. Now he drinks all the time. My friend is getting hit a lot and doesn't know what to do. She doesn't want any adults to know because she doesn't want her dad to get in trouble. She trusts me so I didn't tell anyone. She needs help but I don't know how.
Note from Darlene: The volume of contributor submissions has now made it impossible for me to comment personally (especially in great detail) on each and every contribution. If I haven't left you a comment or one that is in-depth, please do not take my lack of a personal response as a slight, or as a statement that your story is somehow unworthy of my time. Nothing, and I do mean nothing, could be further from the truth. If there was a way for me to respond to all of you at length, I would.
