DEAR DEIDRE: WHEN no one is around, my brother-in-law has made sexual advances towards me. He has even given me love bites on the back of my neck.
I am 15 and my older sister is 26. She and her husband have been married for more than two years.
He’s 27 and he told me she has a hormonal imbalance and so isn’t interested in sex.
I feel I should tell my sister what is going on but I don’t know how to break it to her that her husband has been making sexual advances towards me. I don’t want to upset her but I feel she has the right to know what he is really like.
DEIDRE SAYS: This is sexual abuse and it is not your fault at all.
There is no excuse for your brother-in-law’s behaviour, but are you worried how your sister will react? Talk it through first with Childline, either on the phone or online (childline.org.uk, 0800 1111).
My e-leaflet Standing Up For Yourself can help you stay safe.
