Thanks for your support. I did not share my experience because I want pity, or anything similar, but to show that children in such situations NEED and DESERVE support. Why is it that sexual predators are so often given the benefit of the doubt, while children who tell their parents, or teachers, or anyone else about sexual abuse are not heard? There is something very wrong with that situation.
I'm fine now. Of course, stuff like this does leave lasting marks on a person. I no longer have much or any contact with my mother, and the relatives who talked about the situation with her and all concluded I was lying.
Exactly, you shared to prove a point so these kids can get help! I am glad you had the strength to do that b/c some people just aren't seeing the severity of the situation.
Like I said before I was never molested but I was beaten on a daily basis. No one helped me or my sibs...the cops even came to the house on several occasions from neighbor complaints and EVERY time they ask my father (who was the abuser) "What's going on here/are you hitting these kids" of course my father said no and they always left! I was spoken to ONCE and that was with a black eye and a bloody lip and they asked me what happened (I was 5) and I said I fell down the stairs. This was after our next door neighbor called them and said there was screaming going on. Yet not one person called CPS or actually helped us! People don't like to "get involved" with these things.
Please be brave and do the right thing OP.
