    I'm 17 and over the last few years I've noticed how uncomfortable I am around my uncle. I only see him a few times a year but when I do, he does something inappropriate that feels a bit violating. For example, last month he and my aunty came to visit us - I was looking at a photo on our side table and he walked past and slapped my arse. Bare in mind my parents where there, along with my aunty. Nobody seemed to notice but i felt humiliated. There have been other occasions, such as him staring at my legs (whilst I was 15 in school uniform) and commenting on my skirts/dresses being too short.
    I don't know whether I should tell anyone because i rarely see him and I'm never alone with him under any circumstances. It just makes me quite anxious and uncomfortable whenever he's here.
    What should i do???

    Obviously the stereotypical answer here will be tell someone.

    Guess what my advice will be?

    Tell someone. Mention it to your parents and ask if they noticed or if they're gonna do something about it. If not tell your teachers at school about it or something. Clearly you're bothered by this so take action.
