    My dad is sometimes nice but he threatens to beat me up ALOT. He also threatens me when i dont put a blanket on the bed. He usually punches me on my chest or stomach and choked me twice. He also treats my little brother better than me using the excuse "hes a baby" he doesnt only treat him better but he also never disciplines him. For example. He lets him swear and hit people and does nothing about it. I find this unfair and i have also gotten use to it. And im not even 10

    I yesterday forgot to do my homework and it wasn't long. My mum came home reminding me that i had homework but my dad over heard this and stormed downstairs and grabbed me by the neck.
    He then hit me and i staggered by before my dad hurt me some more my mum pulled me away. Another time is was 9 and i failed a really hard exam and my dad came at me with his arms raised up
    i try to run but my dad pushed the table so i would be trapped, he then pulled it away and hit me on the head and gave me a concussion and i couldn't hear. The next thing i know is that he is on top of me holding something and threatening to hit me. After that he left me(not literately) and i wasn't able to walk with my right foot for a while and i couldn't hear. And even my sister has some fair share of experiences. I had a zoom lesson and my sister was being loud so my dad got her and covered her mouth with his hands and hurting her. My dad even describes that i am useless with no skill. I was
    even in so much distress i made a suicide note because i couldn't take it anymore I even thought about running away but i couldn't bear to imagine my sister and my mother with him. He even in the past
    slapped my mum across the face when she make simple mistakes. So what should i do?

      Hi, We are glad you reached out to us for help. It takes a lot of courage to ask for help especially in the kind of situations you described. First and most importantly, we want to remind you that if you are feeling unsafe or physically hurt you can always call 911 for immediate help. Don’t worry about getting anyone in trouble; the police will sort that out after they are certain you are safe.You deserve to be in a safe home environment and not being physically hurt like you described. The emotional/verbal abuse you described is also not acceptable and you should not have to be exposed to that. There are options for you and possibly some programs in your local community to provide support and help. www.childhelp.org might be a helpful place to start, you have described physical abuse from your father, and possibly Domestic Violence towards your mother. Non of you deserve to be treated like that. After we get some more details and specifics from you, we can talk more about which options and programs might be right for you. We are a non-directional agency that means we won’t tell you what to do. We help you come up with a plan that feels right to you (and that is safe as possible) and help you enact that plan. You can take the next step by reaching out to us on a call on our crisis hotline at (800) RUNAWAY or through a chat on our website. Both are available anytime 24/7 and both are completely confidential. We hope to hear from you soon. Good luck.NRS

      Thank you for reaching out to NRS. We are here to help support during these extremely tough moments. No one deserves to be treated that way; especially by your parents who should always love and protective you. It sounds like you are doing your absolute best to remain calm and non-reactive in these situations. However, you safety is most important to us, so here are some ideas to think about:



      It sounds like life at home continually to gets worse. Your safety is most important. Some things to consider would be to have an escape plan in the event that you feel your life or physical safety is in harm. This could include having a friend with whom you trust that would allow you to stay at their place for a night and who you could text immediately to come get you. Perhaps have a bag ready with all your essential valuables and store it away in a safe place if you need to leave immediately. Also, there’s a national resource called National Safe Place where you can text the word “safe” and your current location (address, city, state) to 4HELP (44357) and they will guide you to designated areas in your town/city where you could go that are safe (fire station, a library, local store). And of course, there is always your locale police force with whom you call at 911 if you felt immediate danger and no one was there to defend you.



      Another idea that you could implement into your daily routine is consider getting more involved with an afterschool program (sports, theater, debate club) that interests you. That way, you can limit the amount of time you spend at home and reduce your exposure around your father. If you still have classes online at home, then consider looking for a YMCA or Boys & Girls’ Club which are places you could spend time with teens your age, study, play sports, and decompress after a long school day. Also, a school guidance counselor is usually a service offered at every school. This could be someone you confide in about your home life and help provide you with ways to deal with what sounds like an extremely unsupportive home life.



      It takes bravery to reach out and ask for help. We are a 24/7 service readily available to help you with further questions that you may have through online chat, forum, and email. Do not hesitate to reach back out.



      We wish you the very best,

      NRS

      Hi, thank you for reaching out to NRS!

      It sounds like your dad is hard on you. His angry outbursts must be scary, but his anger has nothing to do with you. It is a reflection of him. Being told negative things can weigh on someone’s mental health and negatively impact a person’s self image. Know you are good enough and that you deserve to be told positive things. His threats of abuse also sound scary. Any kind of abuse is never ok. Verbal abuse, like his threats are hard to prove. Physical abuse is a bit easier to prove. If his abuse ever causes marks, taking a picture can document the abuse and serve as proof. Filing an abuse report through Child Protective Services can be made by you or someone else on your behalf. Abuse reporting is anonymous and is an option should you wish to go that route. Speaking with a school counselor, a family member, a trusted adult, or a mental health professional (therapist) are options too. They could provide you with a safe space to talk to about things at home and how your dad’s anger is affecting you. www.childhelp.org is a great resource as well. If you feel you are in immediate danger law enforcement is another option. Your safety is so important. It takes bravery and strength to reach out and ask for help. Remember how brave and strong you are. Feel free to reach out to NRS anytime via our online chat service or phone hotline. We are available 24/7! Stay safe, stay strong, and remember - you are not the bad things your dad says you are.

      Hi there,

      Thank you for reaching out to us here at National Runaway Safeline. We are terribly sorry that you had that experience with your dad and we applaud you for recognizing that this type of treatment is not normal and is not okay. You absolutely do not deserve to be threatened by anybody, under any circumstance. We empower you to keep your safety as your number one priority. With that being said, your immediate point of contact should be 911 if at any point you feel in danger. Please know that you do not need to wait for your dad to hit you in order to contact the police. We recognize that it can be intimidating and maybe even scary to call the police, but we must stress again that your safety is the most important thing.

      Another point of contact that may be handy is the Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline https://childhelphotline.org/ On their website, you will find a phone number, text number, and a Live Chat option. Please do not hesitate to contact them in whichever way is most convenient. They specialize in helping young people figure out what steps to take when experiencing abuse in any form. Like us, they also operate on a 24/7 basis, so you may contact them at any time.

      If you would like to talk with us more in-depth about your situation and would like any further resources, we are happy to talk at any time, as mentioned above, we operate 24/7. We have an online chat option found on our website at www.1800runaway.org or you are welcome to give us a phone call at 1-800-RUNAWAY. We look forward to hearing from you if you decide to reach out further and we wish you our warmest wishes in moving forward and into a healthier and safer situation.

      Sincerely,
      NRS

You may also be able to report any mistreatment to CPS. Child Help USA 1-800-422-4453 www.childhelp.org is an organization that helps protect minors from being harmed.
