  • My parents make me hate my life.

    Since I was little my parents have always treated me like trash. My other siblings were always favorited over me. When I turned 11 I developed severe social anxiety and anxiety. My parents would call it “a joke” and that I was “faking attention”. I was a straight A student but I cried everyday and my grades were dropping. At 12 I developed severe depression and it just kept getting worse. My parents called me “stupid” and a “disgrace”. My mom told me that she would smash a computer over my head because I had an F. I stayed in my room and cried all day. Every day of my life I just fight so hard to stay and everyone thinks I’m happy but inside nobody knows. If I do something wrong they would throw things and scream at me. When I try and say something back they say I should “shut my d*mn mouth and I can’t talk back or else I suffer consequences. I just can’t wait to I go to college because I honestly never want to speak to my parents again I’m only a kid and no kid should go through this. My childhood was rough and I started to take care of my siblings starting at 5. My parents work hard, but I don’t know what I did wrong. I don’t really have anyone to talk to because nobody listens to me. I just want someone to tell me that’s it’s going to be okay. If there is another child going through this I just want to say I support you and I hear you. I’m trying to get out this mess too.

    Hello,

    Thank you for reaching out, we are sorry you have had to deal with this difficult situation. You are completely right; you do not deserve to be treated this way or to talked to like that.

    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).

    If you feel like this is an option you want to explore, you may find this website helpful: https://www.childhelp.org/child-abuse/. We can also help you to file a report if that’s the route you are considering.

    It sounds like you’re fearing that the situation may end in suicide if things don’t change. Your safety and well-being is important. If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK (8255); www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org is also a great resource to reach out to in addition to our crisis services.
    Often, having a safe space to share how you’re feeling may bring a variety of solutions previously not thought of. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. This may be an isolating and lonely time for you, but you are not alone in this. We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time.

    Please be safe and reach out soon by phone or chat so that we may help.
    Take care,
    NRS
