Overpowering or just abusive? - May 24th 2013, 01:04 AM

Today was the last day of school and me and my best friend planned to go to the beach this weekend, so I tell my dad that my Mom, my best friend, and I were leaving in the morning to go to the beach. Well my dad just up and yells at me an my mom about going to the beach and he throws a hot bowl of corn at me and it lands down my shirt, and then he yells at my mom saying that she dosent pull any weight around the house (she had surgery May 3) and got released to drive again.... Well Dad ends up telling my mom that if she steps foot out of the house that he is gonna drop the payments on the truck...

It does sound like your dads behaviour is abusive. He is lashing out, throwing things (which could have hurt you) and is emotionally abusing your mom (belittling her by calling her lazy) and controlling her by using thetas and intimidation (saying he'll put truck payments). Maybe this is an isolated incident, I'm not sure, but it's definitely a concerning one from my perspective. I'm sure you love your dad, but you need to be safe. If you do not feel safe you should talk to a trusted adult about finding ways to help your dad with his behaviour. if things get out of hand you could end up in foster care which definitely isn't ideal and it sounds like something is going on with your dad to make him behave so negatively, I'm not sure if he just isn't breaking the cycle or if his abusive seeming behaviour is a product of new stressors in his life, but I definitely don't think it's appropriate. So talk to someone, make sure you have somewhere safe to go if things get out of hand and be safe PM me if you need to talk

Hey there,

First off I am so sorry to hear that this is happening. Is this something that happens often? If it is I would really recommend you to talk to someone because this could become very dangerous. Your dad is using violence and threats and that could potentially hurt you or your mom, if it hasn't all ready. You don't deserve what is happening to you and neither does your mom.

Feel free to message me if you want to talk more about this.

Are you having a tough day or night? Then do this, place your hand over your heart. Feel that? That's called purpose. You're alive for a reason. Don't give up.
