It's easy to report such offenses to the police or right authorities when it's an outsider, but what if the offender is a family member and the family wants to keep this as a secret?

That is downright selfish of a mother to tell her daughter to keep such a secret so she can save her dirty husband's ***. What about you, do you not matter to her or something. I'm a mother and if that ever happened to my child I would report it and get me and my child out of that situation. If you plan on reporting it you'd need lots of proof I would record him in that act or if he says somethings inappropriate to you record it. At the end of the day do what your heart and soul wants to do, your mom should be ashamed of herself.

Its not something to be kept as a secret. It is giving scars to both body and soul. How could a father do this to her daughter. I can understand, when its about family, we think a thousand time to take any step. See, your mother could be saying so because father is the bread and butter earner so she must be thinking of finances. It is something unbearable and should not be tolerated at all. So, try to solve it with help of some one from your family such as some elders you could trust. If at last no option, report it, because no one could touch a female without here permission, its a crime.

There's no difference. All you have to do is secretly call the 911. If you aren't capable of telling the police, go directly to the Police station so they will be able to help you.

It will be a secret but it will traumatized the person who was raped. It will be good to talk to a counselor who would later talk to your mother and counsel her on the need to seek help from the authorities. If you remain silent he will continue doing it and may end up punished by mob justice since he'll take it as a habit everywhere. He needs to own up for his mistake.

You are a beautiful and wonderful soul. Love and care for this precious little self that is you first. You deserve this self-love so if you don't talk to the authorities and also to your therapist, it might affect you emotionally and psychologically in ways you can't imagine right now. Rape is a crime and if left untold the culprit will repeat and repeat and repeat even if family knows about it. Rape is a crime done to you and your body, your mind, your heart and your soul need this justice. It is wrong and have been done to you and it can't be undone by just letting it go.

Call the police or go to the police ASAP. Such criminal behavior needs to be punished. Even it he is your father or you are under any pressure! Please contact the police. This is shameful and ridiculous.
