For almost 2 years i was obliged to go each weekend to grandpa’s home, because all the family (aunts, uncles, cousins) meet there.
I was 11 when i first started telling my parents that i don’t want to go there, but they thought that I’m “not sociable” and they made me go there, 1st for my “sociable” personality and second because it’s “not safe” to keep an 11 years old girl alone at home. What my parents didn’t know was that “grandpa’s home was not safe”.
I had this 5 years older cousin who always had games for his younger cousins, usually the game would be hide and seek, my other cousin used to seek and we hide, and he starts squeezing my breasts, and touching me “down” in a very bad way… and that was the game for two years, and whenever i said i didn’t want to play he used to go to my mom and ask her what’s wrong with your daughter she’s not playing, and start saying that I’m fun screwier in front of my other cousins, and the same thing happened when we went to the TV room or anyplace where we are alone…
I’ll not talk about the consequences of this harassment, because now that i’m 23 i haven’t healed enough from this annoying experience. But a message for parents, when your kids don’t want to do something, it’s not because they are stubborn or because they have personality issues, try to find the real reasons why they don’t want to do things, and help them face them.
