    my step dad is very very strict. first thing thats wrong with him is he embarrases me in public like when he dropped me off to go to my real dads he yelled at me in front of my dad and people were watching me cry. Including a kid. I got so embarrased i tryed not to show my face. second thing wrong with him is that he hits me when he gets mad and he lets his anger out on me. I want to have the guts to tell him that he doesnt have the right to hit me and that its child abuse. Should i tell him that?

    Hey there. Thanks for reaching out to us here at NRS. We know that it can take a lot of courage to reach out for support, and we're glad you took that step.

    It sounds like your stepdad is touching you in a manner that makes you uncomfortable, and that means it's not okay. No one is allowed to touch you in that way, unless you give them consent. Even then, if an adult is doing so, it doesn't matter if you do give them consent. It's still considered inappropriate because they are an adult and you're not. Because this is going on, it might be a good idea to reach out to Child Protective Services and file an abuse report. Their job is to ensure that you're safe in your home, and if you're not, to decide what steps should be taken in order to make sure that you are. If this is something that you're interested in doing, you can file a report on your own, by contacting us here at NRS for support, or by telling a safe person of the abuse (like a teacher, school counselor, therapist, etc.). Each person that I've listed is considered a Mandated Reporter and has a legal obligation to contact CPS when there are any suspicions or indications of abuse. We understand that moving forward in this process can be scary, but want you to know that your safety is critical. These are folks who will prioritize that. If you have any questions about filing a report, what it entails, or would like to learn more about child abuse in general, Childhelp is another great resource to utilize. They're a child abuse hotline and you can reach out to them by texting or calling 1-800-422-4453, or by chatting with them live at www.childhelp.org.

    If you'd like to chat in more detail with us about your situation, please feel free to reach out directly by calling 1-800-RUNAWAY or by chatting with us live at www.1800runaway.org. We're available 24/7 and are always happy to listen, and to help.

    Take care.

There is always someone willing to listen and willing to help.

    Only you know what the best decision for you is as you know your life the best. When making a decision think about the pros and cons and see which one outweighs the other. Also think about which decision would be the safest for you.

    My mom remarried about 6 years ago after being in an abusive relationship with my biological my mom remarried about 6 years ago after being in an abusive relationship with my biological dad.
    Everything was fine with my new dad, or stepdad until he started to hit me. It wasn't abusive hitting. But just I do something bad he hits me, or sometimes it was unnecessary. I also have 2 older brothers that got kicked out because of him.
    Even just now he beat me in front of my cousin and little sister because I ate his cake that he left in the fridge. I sometimes go to my biological father's house sometimes. I even can't believe he was abusive, cause he's really nice. Unless you get on his nerves. :0 I've been thinking about killing myself because of all the things I've been through, but when I think about it. I regret saying it or thinking it. But after he just beat me in front of my sibling and cousin, I'm thinking of living with my dad now. Cause he has embarrassed me so bad. And I will NEVER forgive him. DO YOU THINK I MADE THE RIGHT CHOICE'.
