      Thank you for taking the brave step to reach out to NRS and share a bit about your situation. It is never okay for a parent to hit their child and what happened is not your fault. You deserve to be treated in a way that makes you feel safe and cared for.

      You deserve to be getting support with this challenging situation. We encourage you to reach out to people that you trust. Sometimes having a safe space to talk about things can help you brainstorm ideas to make your situation better you had not thought of previously. Trusted adults to talk to might include friend's parents, family members, or a counselor at school.

      If you are not quite ready to talk to someone in person, there is an organization called Child Help which advocates for young people in abusive or unsafe situations. You can contact them at 1-800-422-4453 or go to childhelp.org to talk more about your options.

      We truly want to be a support for you as you decide on your next steps. We are available 24/7 to listen and help as much as possible.

  • My father just came back from his job as a truck driver. He is usually very kind and nice but in the morning he hit brother A (10) for kicking cereal towards my mom. Later in the evening he hit brother A for the same thing and brother B ( for throwing/dropping a bottle of Vaseline towards them. I could hear them screaming and crying, begging my father to stop. He didn’t. It was awful. They’re asleep now as I’m writing this. I don’t know if this is normal in every other household, or just a few. I also don’t know if this is okay or not.

  • I'm 16 years old, and just today my mother and I got into an argument. She swatted me on my shoulder, and on reflex, I swatted back at hers, just as hard as she did me (NOT hard) and I shouldn't have done that, I know, that was bratty of me and I wasn't thinking - but in retaliation, she busted me in my face with the back of her fist, asking me over and over again "Are you ********ing serious?", "You think you can hit me?" She busted my lip, and I thought she broke my nose for a second whenever she hit me. My nose is still sore, and she knocked my tooth loose.

    My dad died about 6 years ago and he used to spank me whenever I was young, but he never hit my face like that before - whereas Mom does it all the time. She's hit my 10 year old sister in the face multiple times before, like smacking her upside the chin and across her face. Mom never drew blood though, until now. Mom thinks that hitting me like that was completely justified though, she says that she should've "knocked me out" (her words).

    She won't listen to reason. If I approach her genuinely and tell her how I feel she'll either laugh me out of the room or start yelling at me. I know she will; tthat's what happened the last time I tried to open up to her like that. She always believes that she's right, and even if she's not, she's not going to admit that she's wrong.

    I want her to see consequences, somehow. I don't know if I think she's UNFIT to be a parent, necessarily, but she keeps hitting me and my sister in the face. Every time she gets mad she starts cussing and screaming and starts scolding me or my sister, and from there it very easily turns into her reaching out and smacking. I barricade my door all the time, because whenever she's mad she tries to bust my door down whenever she wants in. She holds grudges, she never apologizes, and when she's mad she gets violent quick. She completely skips past other methods of discipline. I feel like I can't ever leave my room, and I don't have anywhere else to go.

    I don't know if I should just suck it up until I can move the out or if there's some other way I can get her to stop. I'm interested in reporting her, but I'm terrified of the outcome. If I reported her it'd put a rift in our family forever, and I'm so close to being 18, I don't know if I should just grit and bear it or what.
