Dad touches Daughter Sexually
I know this girl I lived with, I moved away but still talk to her on the phone. She's a minor and she is a cool person but her parents treat her bad. Their step Dad tells her that she ruins the marriage of him and her mom and the step Dad touches her parts that shouldn't be touched. At night time he touches her but she lives 6 hours from me and she is scared to tell someone what should I do?
She needs to report this to the authorities.
If she would like to speak to someone confidentially about this before contacting authorities, please have her call: National Sexual Assault Hotline at 1-800-656-HOPE. This is a FREE call and it's available 24 hours a day 7 days per week. They may be able to offer her some encouragement and support with this.
If she has an adult in her life that she trusts and can speak to privately, maybe a teacher, school counselor, maybe a friends parent; she may need the encouragement and support of an adult to help her report this to authorities. If she is near a hospital or can get to one, they may have someone she can speak to inside the hospital, possibly a sexual victims trauma nurse; or possibly even a rape counselor. These are just very general ideas. She may or may not be in an area that supports these types of services.
If her Stepdad is touching her sexually, he is committing a serious crime against her. She is a victim and it's not her fault.
