    I’m 14 year old, my dad was eating and he didn’t like the foods because it wasn’t salty and he got really mad. He a very short temper and he hit me in the head and choke me and he start talking while he choke me and he say should I punch you, at that time I just want to die so I didn’t say anything and my body was shaking but I keep a straight face.

    So my day was just like any other but when I woke up I really didn’t want to go to tennis my dad came in and I was scared of him before because sometimes he would grab me by the ear and twist it and just in general he was kind of mean to me but any way I told him I wasn’t going and offered to pay for the lesson but instead of some sort of compromise he just picked me up by the neck and squeezed the front part where the Adam’s apple is it hurt and I had trouble breathing but I am 13 and don’t know what to do because it was kind of my fault that he did it

    I’m 22 years old....I still live at home with my parents. I work full time and go to school part time. We all were eating on the patio. And everyone went inside except me and my dad. He started saying I was being disrespectful and he was a second a way from slapping me. I was trying to walk past him in a calm manner and he grabbed me by the neck and squeezed pulling me up. I couldn’t breathe. Slightly gagged and panicked. I stepped back and screamed no. I don’t know what to do. I always excuse his actions bc he is my dad and I start to think it’s my fault. I need help I don’t know what to do

    Hi, thank you for contacting the National Runaway Safeline. It takes a lot of courage to be able to explain your situation to us. No one should be physically abused. You certainly did not deserve to be choked or pulled against a wall. That must have been terrifying. You do not deserve that treatment at all and you show a lot of bravery telling us what had happened. In this case, you could complete a child abuse report. You can always call and we could help you file an abuse report. You can reach us 24 hours a day 7 days a week at 1-800- RUNAWAY. You can also reach out to the National Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-422-4453 to file an abuse report. However, only you can make the decision as to whether or not you want to follow through with an abuse report. We are mandated reporters so if you were to call us and wanted to just talk about other options and not file an abuse report you would just need to make sure to not give us your father’s name or information. No matter what you ultimately choose to do, we are here as support for you and you are welcome to call at any time or reach out to us via chat on our website or email us at [email protected] . You can also contact a teacher or guidance counselor to file an abuse report. You do not deserve abuse of any kind and if you want to chat more about your situation or would like to discuss other options please do not hesitate to call. We wish you the best of luck.
