Joan's juniors: Stranger is sending dirty texts.

Byline: Joan Burnie

Q A GUY rang me one night and I didn't know him. He said a friend had passed on my mobile number, but he wouldn't tell me who he was, so when he started talking dirty, I cut him off.

But soon after that I started receiving texts which are all about sex. I sent a message back asking whoever it was to leave me alone and not to do it again, but they are getting worse.

So I am very embarrassed by what this guy is saying to me, but he also makes it look as if we are having a relationship and talks about what we do in bed - although I don't even know who this person is.

But because of that, I can't let my mum see them because she will think I AM having sex.

You see, when my older sister reached my age two years ago, she got pregnant and had to have an abortion.

It was really bad for everyone in the family and I promised my mum I wouldn't have sex again until I was at least 19.

So if she sees these texts, she will think the worst and then I don't know what she will do because she's not well and the last thing I want to do is upset her.

A YOU'RE being sexually harassed. That isn't only wrong, it's against the law, and the man who is tormenting you has to be caught and stopped.

It's also possible he's doing this to other kids as well, but either way it's time you handed the problem over to an adult so you can get this creep out of your life as well as your mobile.

I think that adult should initially be your mum.

I hear what you're saying about your sister and her situation, but when your mum sees how badly affected you are by this harassment, she will believe you straight away.

In fact, not telling her could, in the long run, upset her even more. But if you still feel you can't tell her, then at least talk to an aunt, a gran or a teacher you trust, or even someone else's mum.

Then you let the authorities, including the police take over. It's possible it's just some daft lad's idea of a sick joke, but it's not funny and you shouldn't have to put up with it.

You know already you can't deal with this on your own, so take a deep breath and show the texts to someone else.

It is the only way to ensure the pervert who is making your life hell is caught and stopped.
