Unhappy Abused in past and everyone is acting like it never happened. - May 1st 2011, 04:43 AM

I was abused by my stepbrother all through middle school and now everyone in my family is acting like it never happened. I'm still expected to stay in the same house as him and be perfectly comfortable because apparently there was no abuse just stupid teenage boy stuff. It doesn't help that he continues to act abusive around me when no ones around. I'm scared and need help because I really don't want to be abused again.

Hey Ruby. I'm sorry this has happened to you. Remember that everyone at TH cares about you. My PM box is always open.

Have you old your parents about the abuse? If not, you should definitely tell them because your home is supposed to be somewhere safe, and obviously right now it isn't.

If you have already, tell them again. Tell them that it still affects you and that it still happens. It might be that they just don't want to acknowledge that this is happening to you.

If they still don't listen, go to our school or another trusted adult.

I hope things work out.

Hester. x

I've told my parents about it continuing a few times. They don't do anything. I've also told people at school and they all tell me oh it's nothing hes just being a stupid teenager. People have decided that I'm a liar and hes the perfect child. If he gets as bad as he did when this first started then when I finally tell again people will just say oh liar just go live with your friends if you wanna be away from everyone. Nobody believes me that hes abusive.

Your parents shouldn't be treating you like this. I would suggest that you go to the police if the abuse is current. You shouldn't have to live somewhere where you're not safe.

I am sorry no one is believing you, sometimes its cos the parents don't want to admit that their child is doing something so badly to another child or that they can't cope their child is being hurt.. I suggest you go to the police or tell a teacher at school..

I will try to go to the police or a teacher. Its hard to talk about it when I always seem to have someone around me who will run off and tell my parents that I told.

Hey,

Since you have told friends, parents, and teachers, you need to either go to the police or call Child Services. Either of those people can and most likely will help you. Once you get the law involved, they will do an investigation and make a decision based on what they find. Don't ever give up. Don't ever stop telling your story. <3 You are a very brave individual and I'm very proud of you.

Take care,
Kitty.

I need to find some time that I can get away and call the police or tell them. Someone is almost always around and I can never get privacy to call.

It can be hard when parents/misc. family members do not listen.
Based off my own personal expirience, I've noticed family members do not wish to believe it simply because there in denial. Nonetheless, the childs needs should always come first and if he/she is stating expirience of abuse, there is no need for the parent to deny it.
I am sorry that this happened to you and if you ever, ever need anyone to talk to about this sort of stuff, feel free to get in touch.
Good luck and I hope this stuff stops happening to you. Nobody deserves it..




Meeting you was the biggest pleasure I ever did recieve.
