My mom hits me but says it is to disipline - January 19th 2010, 10:00 PM

My mom hits me and says it is because i need to respect her and its disipline. None of my friends get hit. I dont want to tell anyone because I love her and Im scared that they might take me away from her and I will have to go to a foster home because my dad is in jail and wouldnt be able to support me. I have a good life, a lot of friends, athletic, and I dont want to leave that life to live in a foster home.

Hey there.

I'm really sorry to hear your mom is hitting you. I don't think a parent should ever hit their child and I really think you should talk to someone.

As for being taken away, it depends on the situation. I'm not sure what all aspects of your home are like, but they don't remove all children/teens. The goal of agencies like Social Services, etc. is to keep families together. If they think you are in danger they may take you out for a time, but it doesn't have to be permanent if your mom changes things. And if she loves you, she will change for you.

This page contains different child abuse/help hotlines. You really don't deserve abuse so I hope you will call or find someone to talk to in your life. Teachers, school counselors, religious leaders - there are a lot of people out there who would love to help.

Keep yourself safe and feel free to PM me anytime.
<3 Emily

I think it all depends on your age, and how hard she is hitting you. This is a hard question, as people have different beliefs when it comes to disiplining children. Personally, I believe in hitting kids lightly when they're young.

There is no excuse for her hitting you.
You need to tell Protection Services and the Police, and then see if there is another family member someplace who can try and gain custody of you. Going to a Foster Home and being taken away from her would be much better than living like this, putting up with her abuse. At least in another place, she can't hit you anymore, she can't abuse you anymore.
