    I would definatly tell a parent or family member, if that's not an option (because you don't feel comfortable doing it) I would call childline (like the actual line) and talk to one of their concelers about it because they'll know what to do. Alterntivly you could tell a teacher at school, or a friend and ask them to tell someone. you don't need to be ashamed about what happened, just remember you are in no way in the wrong in this situation.

    what they did was in no way okay, and I'm really sorry that it happened to you. I hope things get better and you find the corrage to tell someone.

    Hi Jordan,

    Being able to write your letter is such a huge step and we're so glad that posting on the boards has helped you work out more about what you want to do.  It can take time to build up courage and that's maybe where talking to a counsellor could help too?  You could call, email or have a 1-2-1chat and talk about all the different feelings you have around giving your teacher the letter and all the things you think of her saying.

    You can post here too and have all our support.

    Take care,



how i feel
