  • Physically and emotionally abusive parent.

    I’m 13 (i take all pronouns), and my mother is physically and emotionally abusive towards me and my nephews. I want to run away to my biological dad because I know that he would take me in w/o hesitation but I don’t think he has the money to support the both of us and claims to have barely enough for himself. He also has two jobs which would limit my emotional needs.
    My mother is physically abusive towards mostly the eldest of my nephews who live with me (3 YO). He has been hit on the side of his head, his back, and his arms. I have to hear him crying almost everyday and it hurts me to see him go through so much at such a young age.
    The youngest (1 YO) is yelled at constantly and when taken away from something, is dragged by his arm. Occasionally, he’s hit on his arm but not as much as the eldest.
    I am mostly verbally abused and sometimes hit. I’m called multiple names that would fill a whole paper. For example, “dumbass” “idiot” and “slow”. I get hit on the back. My mom says that she’s never seen a stupider person than me. She tends to switch emotions too and it's like one minute it shows that she loves me and cares and then the next she treats me like I’m nothing and doesn’t care when I cry, blaming me for the reason I cry. I have suicidal ideation and sometimes self harm with a shaving razor, scissors, or x-acto knife. I’m afraid of my own mom and constantly anxious. I feel so pressured and hopeless. I want to run away but don’t know what to do with my nephews or how to tell them they won’t see me anymore. I also don’t know who to go to since my dad isn’t financially stable and is stressed out enough.
