I don't Know What To do - August 25th 2009, 07:46 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of rape or abuse, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

When my dad gets mad and Angry with me he offers punches and kicks me. He's knocked me out a few times by doing it.
I don't whether to tell or not because I don't know what will happen to me. Also altough dad hurts me I care about him and don't want anything bad to hapen to him.
What will happen to me and dad if I tell??

Hi Lucy,

I would tell someone if I were you, however, you may be put into custody of another family member, and your dad could possibly be put away for abuse. Its a huge decision, but what he is doing is WRONG.

PM me if you need anything <3

hi sweetie. i would tell. you would probably be put with another family for a few years, or maybe even months. your dad would POSSIBLY be charged with abuse, but most likley he would be sentenced to anger managment. because you are 15, the judge will listen to what you have to say. if you tell the judge you dont want him to go to jail and you want to live with him when he is better, the judge will side with you! message me if you need to talk! good luck =]

i told on my dad - and all that happened with me was a social worker come out to see me,and then the following day come to my house and spoke to my mum and my sisters. i got to stay at home, and not much happened after that. it would be best to tell someone, even if its just a neighbour or a friend or a teacher it would be best to tell someone.

As chatterbox said above, they will come and counsel your family and tell your dad the steps that will be taken if he beats you again. And in no uncertain terms, they deal with this kind of thing and usually do a good job of it.

You will stay with your family if you want to unless your dad chooses to make a fool of himself and misbehave in front of the counsellor. It's good of you to be concerned about him, I wish he were as concerned about you. I had an abusive father, so I can sympathise. Thing is, don't keep it covered up. He will only do it again.


What just happened?

What he is doing is wrong! Your father or not he has no right to treat you like this. I would advise telling. It is possibile that you could have a say in what happens to him like if you want to press charges. I don't know though since you are a minor, but this HAVE to stop.
