Unhappy boy

Dear Queenie,

I’m in high school. My father died when I was in second grade and a man in our church became my mentor and has become like a father to me, but he hits me with a strap when he thinks I have been bad. I haven’t told my mother about this so she doesn’t know.

Queenie, I like everything else about this man, but not the beatings. What can I do?—Unhappy boy

Dear Boy,

This man has no right to hit you. What he is doing to you is abusive. You should tell your mother or a teacher or school counsellor about it and let them take the appropriate steps.
