  • My dad threatened that if I say anything he doesn’t understand, he will beat me up.

    My household is Chinese and my dad doesn’t speak English. When I spoke in English today, he yelled at me and threatened to beat me up if I said anything he didn’t understand and that he would automatically assume it was slander. I feel that I just got my freedom of speech taken away from me and I’m honestly thinking of running away. What should I do?
