I am eighteen years old. When I was about twelve my stepfather kept petting me and eventually put his hands inside my sweater. I told my Mom and she didn’t believe me. Things got worse and I told my Grandma and she let me come to live with her. My Mom and her husband now have a five-year-old little girl and I have seen my stepfather petting her like he used to do me. I am worried about her but I don’t know what to do.
Dear Big Sister,
You might want to take your little sister out once in a while. Your Mom would probably like a free baby sitter and you would be able to form a relationship with her so that she could talk to you. If your sister tells you about anything your stepfather does to her that is sexual in nature, don’t be afraid to call Child Protective Services in your area and report him. Your Mom didn’t believe you so your little sister is unprotected.
