Teen dating abuse and tru
As an innocent 13 year old, Becky never imagined she would become involved in teen domestic violence - that, surely, only affected older, married women?
Sadly Becky soon found out the reality of teen abuse.
I used to tell my mom I was staying in a friend's house but I was with him. She told me to pack my things into a black sack and be gone by the morning. It wasn't long before he moved in and the name calling started. I stepped inside the door, and told him, I wanted to break it off.
He punched me straight in the face, threw me down a set of wooden stairs into the basement.
This is Nadya's story of teen domestic violence: My story starts from the day I was born really. One day a girl I had just met invited me to her 21st in a local pub.
My mom didn't know how to love me, I never fit in anywhere, was always in trouble. I didn't think my mum would let me go, but she saw how excited I was, I promised not to drink, and I'd be home on the last bus. I met my friend at her house, she suggested I try on a top of hers to make me look older, it was quite a sexy top, she did my make-up and I looked much older.
He told me to get into bed, and he started telling me how useless I was. Took my wages off me, wouldn't let me wear nice clothes, or makeup, or even do my hair nice.
What would I do without him, when even my own family doesn't want me. I got pregnant because he no longer wanted to use contraception.
He phoned my parents because the doctors asked him too.Then he'd let me go and I'd run straight into our bedsit. He'd beat me, tie me up naked, humiliate me by ordering me to make his food or clean the blood up, constantly verbally abusing me. I woke up the next day and crept out of the flat while he was sleeping.
