Exclamation I have an Abusive Parent and I want to get out. - September 9th 2011, 10:14 AM

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.

For my whole life I have been alone at age 2 my father abandoned me leaving me in the care of my mother for my entire life.My mother tried is pretty messed up you see I was born and raised in New York,New York for the greater part of my life.Until she met a guy and uprooted me to move to Pennsylvania to live with my soon to be very abusive step father.

He always beat me when she was'nt around sometimes with a sack of oranges,sometimes with a belt on a few occasions he pushed me down the stairs into the basement and lock the door.I tried to tell my mother about him many times but she said I was lying I later found out she was being abused by him too.He would throw her out of the house and they would separate for months and my mother would appear to move on she even moved back to New York a few times but them getting back together was inevitable.The whole situation would rinse and repeat.

Finally my Mother left him and moved her and I into a ghetto apartment but than she began to abuse me.She would lock me out of the house,hit me with brooms and mops,throw things at me,and not to mention the emotional and physiological abuse.I have gotten to the point where I just spend my whole life locked in my room with my best friend my dog rascal.

This all would be fine as I avoid her but she is talking to him again and I dont feel like being uprooted once more to end up being abused by the both of them.Im 17 and a half I want to move out,I need to move out so I have been looking into legal emancipation.Can I use her abuse and neglect to bolster my case because I cant live in this place anymore.

If I move out ill go as far away as possible to California where I always wanted to live,ill get my own apartment and a job,I dont have my licence but thats only because my mom is afraid that ill leave.
Her years of abuse and neglect I have learned pretty much how to fend for myself cooking and cleaning wise.

I think one of the first steps and best steps you should take would be to contact law enforcement. The courts will ensure that the people that hurt you are properly punished for their actions and they will help ease your transition to a better living situation. A judge would definitely consider abuse as just cause for emancipation and would likely offer restitution/financial aid to benefit you during the criminal prosecution.

Drew, I'm sorry you've lived like this, yet happy for you that you're within 6 months of being an adult.

You have two choices here: The first is to contact law enforcement, or the state Dept. of Family and Children's Services NOW, before you turn 18. OR, you can make a plan to leave properly when you turn 18. use the time now to save some money and make some arrangements for living and working, and then work towards the completion of those goals, so hen you finally leave, it's in a solid, planful way, which would best facilitate your success.

If, however, you feel physically endangered, call 911.

PM me with the link of the post you'd like me to respond to.

I am so sorry

had a dream, i was king. woke up, still king(: - eminem

you put up walls and paint them all a shade of gray. i stood there loving you and wished them all away. and you come away with a great little story of a mess of a dreamer with the nerve to adore you- taylor swift

i dont know what i want, so don't ask me- taylor swift.

maybe there's beauty in goodbye. theres just no reasons left to try. you push me away. another black day. let's count up the reasons to cry.
