Abuse at home

"My counsellor talked me through how to get help and we got through everything."

My Dad used to slap me, scream at me and call me names. Life was pointless. No one liked me at school. I always had bruises on my arms and legs. My teacher asked me about it once and I lied and told her that it was from falling over. I was scared to go home. I never wanted any of my friends over at my house because of all the stuff that happened.

I couldn't tell anyone about it until one day I came across Kids Helpline.

I started emailing my counsellor and telling her about these things. My counsellor talked me through how to get help and we got through everything. Now we just talk about what is happening in my life now.
