  • Father choking me

    i feel like i am left out in the family, like my sister is favored and my parents hate me. even though they do nice things for me i feel that they hate me inside. my father choked me for about 5 seconds today i was terrified and i immediately surfed the internet for places like this. im 13 years old. my parents love my sister so much and not me. my sister cries all the time and cares about stupid things and makes a mess of the house and when i do one tiny thing i am screamed at. i don't know what to do about this.

      My dad choked me too because I did not finish the dish washing job so he went up to me and said I have had enough of you kid and he grabbed me by the throat and started choaking me up against the fridge then he stopped when mom walked up I am wondering what I should do. Is that an abusive father?

        Thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline and for responding to the forum posts. It sounds like you’ve been going through such a tough time, but we are here to support you and help you in any way we can. We want you to know that no one deserves to be choked, physically hurt, or abused, and you should not have to go through that.

        If you want to learn more about what is considered abuse, you could go to this website: Also, if you haven’t already, you could consider reporting the way you’ve been treated. If you have any marks or bruises, it could be helpful to take pictures so you have proof of what’s been going on. If you want more information about abuse reporting or if you want to file a report, you could call Child Help at 1-800-422-4453 or you could call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY (1-800-786-2929) or chat with us online. Also, if you ever feel that you are in danger, you could call 911 for immediate help.

        If you haven’t already, you could consider reaching out to a trusted adult, relative, worker/teacher/counselor at your school for help and support. You could also consider talking to your parents about how you’ve been feeling. Just so you’re aware, we have a conference calling service here where we could help mediate a conversation between you and your parents.

        There are also many resources that could help you find a safe place if you’re in need or help you with anything else you may need. If you want to talk more about what’s been going on, or if you would like more information about resources, you can call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY (1-800-786-2929) or chat with us online.

        Again, thank you for contacting us. It sounds like you’ve been going through a really hard time, but you’ve shown a lot of strength by working through these challenges and reaching out for help. If you ever need anything in the future, please feel free to call us or chat with us online. We’re always here to listen and here to help.
