Our expert says:
have you told your mother about his inappropriate behaviour towards you? And what was her reaction? It is an offence to not protect a child from abuse as a parent and if your mother is not able to face up to her responsibilities then you should consider contacting the authorities.
What I suggest you do is contact Childline for advice on what steps you can take - especially as you were a minor when he made these advances towards you.
You can contact them at www.childline.org.za or 08000 55555
Dont suffer in silence, and if your mother is not prepared to support you, then as sad and difficult as it may be perhaps start thinking about where else you might be able to live e.g. other relatives?
Feel free to post another question ifyou need more help.
