You shouldn’t have to take it. What you describe is physical and emotional abuse. No kid should be scared of her own parent. No kid should be hit and belittled. I’m surprised and alarmed that your mother hasn’t called protective services on your behalf. Since she hasn’t, I suspect she is as scared of him as you are.
I know this will be hard but you really have to talk to a trusted adult to get some help. Think about talking to a teacher, the school nurse or the school guidance counselor. You and your mother need protection and practical help.
In the meantime, there is a number you can call to get some support. The Boys and Girls Town Hotline, 800-448-3000, has counselors on duty 24/7 to help kids like you get the help they need.
Please erase the history of this conversation on your computer. Men like your dad often get very mad when they discover that someone has gone outside the family to try to get help. We certainly don’t want you to get hurt again because you wrote to us here at Psych Central.
It took courage for you to write. Now take the next step. Talk to an adult. Call the hotline if you need more support.
I wish you well.
