  • I can't stand my dad

    My dad is getting worse each time. He doesn't get physically violent but mentally. He gets mad for everything and starts to swear. He slams doors. I feel mentally abused and I don't know what to do. I'm sure my mom and sister feel the same way. He won't take therapy or wouldn't want to take anger management. I really need help, & if I call the cops & he won't leave, it'll make it worse.

    Re: I can't stand my dad

    Hello,

    We're very sorry to hear that things are getting worse with your dad. It sounds like he is more mentally than physically violent. Still, you and your family don't deserve that either. It sounds like you are looking for options, but don't feel that calling the cops will help. Since it sounds like your dad is treated you, your mom, and sister this way, one resource that may help (or be able to direct you) is the National Domestic Violence Hotline: http://www.thehotline.org/ or 1-800-799-7233.

    We are here for you as well. So that we can have a back and forth conversation, we ask you to try reaching out to us directly. If you prefer online communication, we have our Live Chat which is open every day from 4:30 to 11:30pm CST. To chat, all you have to do is go to http://www.1800runaway.org, click on the red Live Chat button, fill out a brief form, and a chat box should open. If you have any trouble or need to reach us quickly, we also have our hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY which is available 24/7. Hopefully that gives you a start and you and the rest of your family are able to stay safe. Good luck!

      I told my mom I can't stand him anymore and she said I'm not the only one, if she can't stand him either, why is she not doing anything? And is there anything she can do? This isn't right

        Re:

        Hi there,

        Thank you for reaching out to us again. This has got to be really frustrating. It is good to hear that you have communicated your feelings, but it has got to be hard to get such a response. Have you tried to call the Domestic Violence Hotline, or passed that number along to your mom?

        You said before that your dad would not go to counseling or anger management. We understand that your dad is the person who is causing these issues at home and being verbally and emotionally abusive. Have you thought about going to family counseling without your dad, just for you and your mom to be able to receive some support and help with this?

        This has got to be hard on you, and we want to make sure that you are safe. How have you been coping with what has been going on? We are here to support you. Please call into our hotline at 1800runaway, or join us on chat from 4:30pm to 11:30pm CST through our website at 1800runaway.org if you would like to talk more.

        Best,
        NRS
