Welcome to Ask Pat

From your email I would be very concerned about what your dad is doing to you.

Your dad would have not right touch you in the way you have described. It sounds like you might not safe at the moment and you do have a right to be safe.

You have a right to get help and support around what is happening for you. Is there an adult in your life that you trust to tell them what your dad is doing to you? This adult may be a family member, a teacher or a sports coach.

You can also phone Childline free on 1800 66 66 66 24 hours a day. There is always someone here to talk to you. We can help you to come up with some options that might work for you to keep you safe.
