Here is another number that you can call....
1-800-4 A Child or 1-800-422-4453
Please make the call. Make sure you tell them that you have no where else to turn and that you are afraid.
You Should Know
No one has the right to abuse you.
You don't deserve to be abused.
If you are being abused, you are a victim.
It's not your fault that you are being treated this way.
It is wrong that you are suffering this pain, fear or sadness.
You are not alone. Other kids suffer abuse, too.
Sometimes abusers scare or threaten kids so they won't tell.
There are people who care about you and want to help you.
If you are being abused, please tell a safe person - that's someone you can trust like a teacher, counselor, school nurse, neighbor or parent. You can also talk to a Childhelp USA hotline counselor.
CALL 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) then push 1 to talk to a hotline counselor. The Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The hotline counselors work with translators who speak 140 languages to help people who call and speak something other than English. All calls are anonymous. (The hotline counselors don't know who you are and you don't have to tell them.)
he has watched me sleep every now and then between the ages of 9 and 13. my moms being emotionally hurt now by him. i have a 5 year old sister. i know he sometimes dresses and bathes her. he caused me to be suicidal for 3 years, he has tried to touch me but has been too afraid of what he knew i could do. when i was 13 it only stopped because i finally told my mom. she talked to him and he lied but he knew the power i had at that point. Child Protective Services knows about it all. my stepdad lied about it all though. to keep my mom in his life. my mom believed a man she had known for several years, instead of her own daughter. so she told me to lock my door. to make me feel safer. as if im 5 years old. hes a filthy pig who only cares about himself. i need to know if theres anything more i can do to protect my family...
A child isn't liable to get a restraining order against their own guardian. To be honest, I don't think there's much you can do while he hasn't actually touched you or done anything physical to you. The fact that Child Services already knows that he's a potential threat and that you're afraid of him already helps your case: any time he flat out tries to touch you in a sexual or abusive way, call them immediately. They most likely keep files open for anyone that calls, so keep informing them and adding to that file, if you truly think that he's a threat. He can't go to jail yet, no. If you already have contact with someone in Child Services, I'd set up an appointment or call in, and talk to them about your situation again.
Hi kiddo... what you need is someone who is an adult to help you through this. Your step-dad is predatory and your mother is failing at her job, which is protecting you. Unfortunately... that happens all too often and it makes me ill, but that is beside the point.
Here is a website for Advocates for Children and Youth on Facebook. Do you have a FB account? Here is the link:
Here is a toll free telephone number for PREVENT CHILD ABUSE.
Child protective services should be shut down. Children should NOT have to live in fear.
Good luck and let us know if you need more help but you need to get help NOW.
Here's the problem. If CPS already knows, I'm not entirely sure what more you can do. Consult with a teacher or a family member, school counselor, etc, someone who is willing to fight for you. They need to call in an abuse report. Or you could call in an abuse report. He does not need to touch you in order for you to have a case. Having him attempt to watch you bathe is enough cause. The problem is the lack of evidence. But just keep trying.
he has also seen me naked, as i had caught him several times naked outside my bathroom door when im in the shower. peeking under the door..
Trying to watch a teen bathe is against the law. She does not need him to touch her.
Ummm you should get a restraining order against him and take it from there.
Ewww! What a creeper...
