  • Help?

    My parents have been abusing me for as long as I can remember. Every time I turn around my dad is yelling at me, calling me names or smacking me. I am planning on running away but I can't leave my brother and sister but at this point I have to do what's best for me. I really need help, should I stay here with my brother and sister or leave them?
