Dear Straight Talk: My stepsister and I are both 17 and almost like real sisters. We share a room and lately I see bad bruises on her body. She confided that her boyfriend got drunk at a party and thought she was being too friendly with another guy so he was a “little rough” afterwards.
She says he apologized the next day and she forgave him. She says it was kind of her fault because maybe she was being too friendly. She wants it kept confidential because if her dad found out he wouldn’t let her see him and would probably “beat the crap out of him”. She says she’s overweight and this is the only boyfriend she’s ever had. I’ve told myself she’s old enough to make her own decisions, but what if something worse happened because I didn’t say anything? — Woodland
