  • I can't take him anymore

    I have had enough of my dad yelling and shouting at me. He wants me to be this perfect daughter that I can't be. I used to love softball and i have played it my entire life, but now he forces me to go to pitching lessons and to practice when i don't want to. So now when I bring up the fact that I think it is pointless to pay for the lessons when i dont enjoy it and it is just a waste of money that i could use to pay for something i actually do enjoy like batting lessons. I told him that because i want more practice before i try out for the JV softball team and he just yells at me telling me. Stop dreaming, you are never going to make the JV team so just be happy where you are. As if you will make the JV team. And i just got so mad at him and i couldnt just sit there while he yelled so i fought back and he just got even angrier and started shouting in my face and then he yelled at me to go and get my phone and when i gave it to him with a glare on my face he raises his hand as to show that he is going to hit me. I cant take it anymore, and to make it all worse my mom does nothing and acts like nothing happened. I try to tell him how it isnt normal and how he need to see someone about his anger he just yells at me and takes more things away. He has already made me go into 2 panic attacks and I cant take it anymore. I want to run away sooooo badly but i have no where to go and i actually care about my grades so i have no clue how that would work. But I guess what i am really asking is.. how do i mange living with him till i turn 18. i am almost 16 and i dont think i can take 2 more years of this. I dont want to go through any more panic attacks but whenever he yells at me i can never back down cause i am too stuborn so PLEASE HELP!!!! I need some type of advise for this
