    I experience something very similar in my household, my stepdad is an alcoholic and forces my mom to drink. If she won’t he mentally abuses her and try’s to make her feel like she is nothing. When he gets her drunk he will just argue with her and try to make it seem like everything is her fault when she didn’t even start the argument. He also try’s and tel her that she is a worthless human being and it’s really hard to hear this because I already know about her depression. One time this lead to her trying to hang herself for him and one of his body’s to find her while she was hanging there just in time. My walls are completely hollow so I hear every word they say when they argue and I overheard my mom talking about how hit her and gave her a black eye. When I had asked my mom about it she said something like she slipped or walked into something I don’t fully recall what she said. But I am afraid of the situation getting worse considering he has already hit her once in the past and has attempted to commit suicide in the past. If you can please help me.

    We're sorry to hear your parents are fighting. It sounds like you're scared about what's going on and aren't exactly sure what to do. While we can't ever tell anyone what they should do, we can help you brainstorm some ideas to help you figure out for yourself what might work in your circumstances. Some ideas might be to talk to your mom or dad about how you feel. Approaching them when the situation is calm and they are in a good mood might be a good idea. If you're uncomfortable with directly talking to them, you could write them a letter explaining your fears and concerns. Of course, many find writing itself to be a healing process. Understandably, this situation has greatly affected you and, no matter what the outcome is, journaling your thoughts and feelings might be something to consider.

    If you feel the fights include things like abuse or domestic violence, you could file a report detailing what's happening, particularly how it is affecting you. The more details you include, the more likely you would be believed. But this is really your decision and we understand it's a sensitive topic.

    If you'd like to talk more about this, we are here for you 24/7. We are confidential and never judge. Our number is 1-800-RUNAWAY. You can also chat with us online via our website: www.1800runaway.org. We hope to hear from you soon!

    Take care,
    NRS

    Hello There,
    Thank you for contacting The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen. Wow it sounds like you are going through a really difficult time. It sounds like you may not be in a safe environment.
    What you described with your brother could be physical abuse, which is never okay. If you would like to make an abuse report please contact The Child Help Hotline at: 1800-422-4453. We know that sometimes making an abuse report can be scary if you would like our help you can contact us at any time.
    Your step dad should also not be giving your mother a black eye. That is considered domestic violence. You can contact the domestic violence hotline at: 1800-799-7233. If you ever feel like you are in immediate danger please call 911, and an officer will be able to help you. You may also consider talking to a trusted adult or a school counselor about what is going on at home.
    We hope this information will be helpful to you in your situation. If you have any other questions or would like to talk please give us a call. We are here 24/7 to listen and to provide support. We wish you the best of luck!

    Thank you for your response to another user’s post. Often forums are a place of support and understanding for many youth. It often may be validating and helpful for users to read similar situations as well as exchange feedback to one another. For anyone experiencing any difficulties or challenges, the National Runaway Safeline encourages youth to reach out to our 24/7 crisis support line either by phone or chat for immediate services.

    Sounds like you are are going through a whole lot at home yourself with your family and substance abuse at home. Here at NRS, we are primarily concerned about your safety and truly want to help. Depending on details of your situation, there might be a few possible options for you, such as reporting the neglect to child protective services, or staying with a family member. You also mentioned that your dad wants you to end your life. That seems incredibly hurtful, and it's never okay to say that to someone. Your life has infinite worth and you do deserve to make it through this and get the help you need and deserve. Please do not hesitate to call or chat us if you would like to talk through your situation: 1-800-RUNAWAY; www.1800runaway.org. We are here for you.
