The same thing basically happened to me but it was another family member not my father. It started when I was really young and went on and on until I was a teenager. I was threatened not to tell. I was scared so I didnt. But I finally told. Theres no doubt that if this happens to anyone they need to tell right away but in my case it seemed to make things worse. My family seemed to take sides. A few made me feel like it was my fault or didnt believe me like such a thing couldnt happen. Or as if I was making it up for attention. For years I wished I had never told. Now that Im older Im glad I did. I was in the right 100%. Nothing ever happened to the person who did this to me but he knows who he is and he has to live with what he done. Its really hard for me to leave it all in the past or block it out of my mind when I see him out from time to time and he has his own daughters with him. It makes me wonder if he is doing things to them. I pray to God above he isnt. And if he is I just hope and pray they do the right thing!

I was never touched by a family member, but I had a similar incident happen one time. I turned it around in my head that I was in the wrong place at the wrong time, and it was my fault. I was 10. I rationalized and internalized every bit of it. I did tell on him. Nothing ever happened to him. It was just recently that I have been able to work through it in my head, and realize that it was not my fault, and he was a dirty old man. I will say a little prayer for you all that have posted, because this can change a person's life. Analyzing the situation(s) and relationship with the abuser over and over will consume you and ruin your life and future relationships. You are stronger than that, I can tell by the posts. Just know that you have someone that is praying for you.
please tell

Have you ever talked to his daughters? Maybe you should, i know it is hard. I have been through alot of the same thing, i told and some of my family turned on me, but i am glad i told. I just wish someone would have talked to me. There are so many kids that this is happening to. I just want them to know they need to tell. It is not there fault. They may feel threatened or scared, but no one will hurt them for telling. I always felt so ashamed and i should not have. Now that i am older i realize it was not my fault. If we post our stories, maybe some child will read this and realize they are not the only one that has had this to happen to them and they need to tell. God Bless

Child sexual abuse is a form of child abuse in which a child is abused for the sexual gratification of an adult or older adolescent.[1][2] In addition to direct sexual contact, child sexual abuse also occurs when an adult indecently exposes their genitals to a child, asks or pressures a child to engage in sexual activities, displays pornography to a child, or uses a child to produce child pornography.[3][1][4]

Effects of child sexual abuse include depression,[5] post-traumatic stress disorder,[6] anxiety,[7] propensity to re-victimization in adulthood,[8] and physical injury to the child, among other problems.[9].... Sexual abuse by a family member is a form of incest, and can result in more serious and long-term psychological trauma, especially in the case of parental incest.[10]

.....Approximately 20% to 25% of women and 5% to 15% of men were sexually abused when they were children.[11][12][13][14][15] Most sexual abuse offenders are acquainted with their victims; approximately 30% are relatives of the child, most often fathers, uncles or cousins; around 60% are other acquaintances such as friends of the family, babysitters, or neighbors; strangers are the offenders in approximately 10% of child sexual abuse cases. Most child sexual abuse is committed by men; women commit approximately 14% of offenses reported against boys and 6% of offenses reported against girls.[11] Most offenders who abuse pre-pubescent children are pedophiles,[16][17] however a small percentage do not meet the diagnostic criteria for pedophilia.[18]
...If you are being abused please tell.

All adults convicted of child molestation, should be hanged for the rest of the pervs to see that we won't tolerate this unacceptable behavior from these freaks.

Need to Know, your life story just breaks my heart. I wish that you would have had more memorable memories of being young. Your dad seems like a very mean man who didn't have the right to even raise you. My prayers are with you. I hope that you keep looking to the future and forget about your fathers in ability to raise you and the hurt he has caused you. Your mother should have realized something was going on but I guess she was never home though. I will pray for you sweetie. You deserved so much more in life and you should have been protected not abused. 6

Thank you so much for your concern i just want to help others. Maybe someone being abused will read my story and relize they are not the only one, and they need to tell. Incest happens more than people know.

These story's or so SAD, breaks my heart. Its not what a childhood should be. The loving memories of being a child should be of happy times love and playing. NO child should have these momories. I hope and pray each one of you have found a place in your hearts to move forward and make a happy life for yourselves. May God be in your lives to show you that you are NOT at fault and find the peace and love you so deserve.These men will be healt accountable for there action before God himself.

I had a very sad childhood. I was molested by a family memeber. For a long time i was a very angry person. I did not trust anyone, i was literly driving myself crazy. I even tried taking my own life. Luckly God was with me through it all. He was there for me even when i was not there for him. I know my abuser will some day face judgement and i hope he is saved at that time i really do. I hated him for so long if i prayed about him it was for him to die. Since giving my life to Jesus i have peace. Now i pray that my abuser will find Jesus, because i do not want ANYONE going to HELL. Now God wants me to take something bad and make it good. He wants me to share my story and try to help others.

I have to ask, did you report this abuse to one of your teachers that you might have had in 7th and potentially 8th grade? Did you leave the school in your 8th grade year?
