  • I get mentally abused by my Dad because of his anger issues he has.

    I'm 13 years old, and I'm an introvert (Which explains why I don't talk when I need to speak.) I want somebody to talk to. My Dad always blames me for everything and is the main problem for our family. He made my Mom left and abandoned us, but I talked to her about it, and she is okay. My Dad has serious anger issues and believe it or not. He might be REALLY crazy too. He once pulled out a knife on my neck to "Scare me" But I think its a threat, and he would've killed me right on the spot. But that was a long time ago, and I didn't dare to talk about it. But I'm pretty sure you're going to forget about this cause it was a long time ago, but he did recently threatened me with a weapon.
    I'm scared that he might hurt me like before. He slaps and hits my head when I argue with him about the Anger issues he has. I don't know about this, but I honestly think he hates me and won't admit it. My Dad needs help, and a lesson since NOBODY won't care about him. My Grandma always defends him even if he's in the wrong every time! I don't feel safe here anymore. I've got 5 YEARS! Before I turn 18! I won't run away if necessary, but I worry about what will happen during those five years before I turn 18. But here I am. I am still stuck at home writing this and have to wait five years in danger. Or it will all be over soon, and I will be somewhere safe. Sometimes or a lot of times, my entire family goes against me, so I posted this. I only made this to get some advice and see if this is a major red flag.

    You mentioned some things that raise concern for your safety and well-being. If any harm or abuse is happening at home, you have the right to report it. We are not experts on the issue, but generally once it's been reported, social services will either decide whether or not to take the case and further investigate. If they do take the case, they will send out someone from child protective services to do an investigation (interviewing people in the household) and from there they will decide the level of danger within the household. It generally ranges from no danger (the youth stays in the home, some services are given, and the case is closed), moderate danger (they will provide family services with possible temporary displacement) and high danger (they will remove the youth from the home and offer certain services).
    You don't deserve to be abused by your father. It's not your fault that this is happening.
