Teen Sex Father
(ABC News) - A Washington state teen is suing for millions of dollars in damages after she said a family court investigator "ruined her life" by knowingly sending her to live with her grandfather, a convicted sex offender who proceeded to abuse her nearly every day for a decade.

In court documents filed late last month, the unidentified teen claimed that she was just six years old when Cowlitz County Family Court Services investigator Mark Workingor took her from her mother and placed her in a home with her father and grandparents.
In March 1999, the teen's father petitioned the court for custody of the then-6-year-old. According to the court documents, the father told authorities that he was worried that the teen's mother "neglects the child's supervision, nutrition and hygiene" and had a "history of drug use." The father also claimed that his daughter suffered from "chronic head lice infestations" because of the "filthy home" the mother kept, according to the court documents.
The investigator found that while the teen s mother had provided the majority of the teen's care since she was born, she was doing so inadequately and awarded primary custody to the father . Also included in the investigator's recommendation was that any contact between the child and the sex offender grandfather "be supervised by either the father or the paternal grandmother."
The teen ' s lawyer said that his client decided to bring her case to the public ' s attention in hopes of helping other children like her who have become victims because of the "egregious actions" of Cowlitz County .
Farrah Abraham was born in Omaha, Nebraska, and raised in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Her father, Michael Abraham, is of Syrian and Italian descent. Her mother, Debra Danielsen, is of Danish and Sicilian ancestry. She grew up with her half-sister, Ashley Danielson. Her parents divorced in 2010 and in 2017, her mother married David Merz.
In 2008, Abraham, then 17, was selected to appear on the MTV show, 16 and Pregnant, a reality series that aimed to document the lives of pregnant teenagers across the United States. News of her pregnancy caused issues between her and her mother, Debra Danielsen, with Danielsen calling her daughter a whore and preventing her from obtaining an abortion; being pregnant, Abraham was forced to discontinue her cheerleading. Furthermore, during filming, Derek Underwood, the father of her child, died in a car accident. Abraham gave birth to the couple's daughter, Sophia Laurent Abraham, on February 23, 2009. Abraham's episode of 16 and Pregnant aired in 2009.
Later that year she was cast in the spin-off series Teen Mom; it followed Abraham, in addition to Maci Bookout, Catelynn Lowell and Amber Portwood, who also appeared on episodes of 16 and Pregnant, during their first years of motherhood. The series premiere was broadcast on December 8, 2009. Abraham and her mother are seen to have a rocky relationship throughout Teen Mom, with Danielson being charged with assault in an Iowa court for hitting her in January 2010. Abraham started seeing a therapist to discuss the rocky relationship with her family, because she couldn't cope with her mother's actions as well as dealing with her emotions regarding Sophia's father, Derek Underwood and his death. Farrah eventually proved to Derek's family through a paternity test that Derek was in fact Sophia's father and then was faced with a lawsuit filed by Derek's mother for grandparents' visitation rights, despite no previous contact with Sophia.

The analysis is of the 1988 National Survey of Family Growth, a survey that was repeated as recently as 2011-2013. Someone who knows how to use NSFG should figure out the current state of the age gap between young mothers and fathers and let TeenMomNYC know.
In January, another student reported seeing Cummins kissing the girl on the lips, setting off an investigation into their relationship. The teen and the teacher denied they had kissed, but the investigation found that the teen often relied on Cummins for support.
Her mother doesn't encourage the relationship or support the importance of her having her father in her life or regular visitation, although it's court-ordered. He tried making contact with her several times when this last episode happened, but she ignored his calls and messages. Now that her birthday is coming up, however, she had her older sister send her wish list to him via a text message. Should he buy gifts for a child who has ignored him for the better part of a year? -- GIFTS OR NO GIFTS
DEAR ABBY: With no warning, my mother-in-law packed up and left my father-in-law. From what she tells me, he was verbally and emotionally abusive, and all-around controlling. My father-in-law is remarrying. He met his fiancee shortly after my MIL left.
I don't think I mind that he's getting remarried, but I do mind that no one has told my husband's mother. FIL won't tell her, and my husband won't either. She has said she "doesn't want to know anything" that's going on with my FIL. Not only does she not know, but neither does my husband's brother. My brother-in-law despises his father.
DEAR TOUGH SPOT: Your mother-in-law made clear that she doesn't want to know what's going on with your father-in-law, so keep your mouth shut and don't become the town crier. Because your husband says he needs your support on that occasion, go with him and offer "good wishes" to the happy couple. (From what you have written, they are going to need them.) When your husband's mother finds out about the marriage -- and, of course, she will -- remind her that she told you she didn't want to be kept informed, so you respected her wishes.
This is not your mother and father's high school club. First established in a Los Angeles high school in 1984, gay-straight alliances (GSAs) like Project 10 are school-sponsored clubs for gay teens and their straight peers. While they are still a new concept--most GSAs have been founded within the past two years in response to the widely publicized 1998 murder of Matthew Shepard in Wyoming--there are approximately 750 such organizations nationwide. Suddenly, GSAs are on everyone's radar screen--the darling of the diversity crowd and the bête noire of the Christian right, which warns that GSAs will usher the "homosexual agenda" into schools.
This hasn't stopped some parents' coalitions and conservative political groups from trying to force GSAs out of existence by arguing that the alliances subject impressionable teens to explicit sexual discussion or "teach" them how to be gay. The caricature of GSAs presented by some of the more overheated conservative rhetoric is designed to horrify even the most liberal-minded parents. In Massachusetts, for instance, the $1.5 million allocated to the Department of Education and the Department of Public Health for gay youth programming came under attack this year by a group called the Parents' Rights Coalition after a coalition member, Scott Whiteman, secretly taped the workshop "What They Didn't Tell You about Queer Sex and Sexuality in Health Class," at Tufts University's Teach Out 2000 conference. According to Whiteman's testimony before the Department of Education, the facilitators, one of whom happened to be a department employee, answered graphic questions about the how-tos of oral and anal sex in front of students as young as 14. Although the conference was not supported by state money, it was organized by the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), which at the time had the state contract for teacher training on gay themes and homophobia.
According to the media, high school students like Ally are feeling increasingly comfortable leading openly gay lives. Studies have shown that gay youths today are disclosing their sexuality, or "coming out," at a younger age: In the 1970s, gay men came out on average in their mid- to late-20s; now, the mean age is 18, and it is no longer unusual to find professedly gay students in high school. Writing last April in The Advocate, a national gay magazine, David Kirby reported that "across the nation, gay and lesbian students are coming out in their schools with a sense of confidence that would have seemed impossible just a few years ago." A Newsweek story attributes this supportive climate to gay-straight alliances, which "have been a major factor in helping teenagers create openly gay lives." Some people claim that it is only gay-straight alliances, and not the larger school culture, that is making the climate for gay kids more supportive. To the extent that schools are becoming safer for gay students, it is "in spite of, not because of, the system," says Kevin Jennings, the executive director of GLSEN.
Ritch Savin-Williams, a professor of developmental psychology at Cornell University, agrees with the positive assessments--to a point. "High schools are becoming safer, but at the same time they are also becoming more dangerous," he says. "The visibility"--in movies and television shows like Will & Grace that feature gay characters--"is great for gay teens, but it can also lead to more harassment. There is still that part of society that gives permission to gay-bash: the religious right, Dr. Laura."
While there have yet to be any systematic studies of the effectiveness of gay-straight alliances in promoting tolerance or reducing gay-bashing (most are still too new to have been studied in that way), Zach's example suggests the power of the GSAs to bring gay and straight kids together, whatever their differences, as friends and political allies. In high school, where small differences can create huge social gulfs, that's a significant achievement. Anecdotal evidence suggests that providing a safe space for gay youths to voice concerns about family and identity, to engage in political activism, and just to be themselves is an important factor in preventing depression and suicide. (According to a survey of youths' risk behavior conducted by the Massachusetts Department of Education in 1999, 30 percent of gay teens attempted suicide in the previous year, compared with 7 percent of their straight peers.) Based on his experience, Savin-Williams says that "just having the knowledge that a safe space exists" can help gay youths who are afraid of facing violence or harassment at school. Markowski of Project 10 East, Inc., adds that GSAs benefit not just gay youths but all marginalized kids, giving them self-esteem and teaching them "leadership skills that they can go out and use in the real world." 041b061a72
