I'm pretty sure my dad is a psychopath - November 2nd 2018, 09:51 PM

He just threatened to beat me. He's threatened to murder the neighbours with an axe as well once. What a household I live in.

That sounds really scary.

Are you safe, or able to spend some time away from your dad? If not, is there anyone in your life that you could talk to about this? You shouldn't have to feel threatened at home, especially not by a parent.

I think you should contact the relevant authorities about this.

Had he harmed you already? If not, it can be just threats and the only thing he wants is to scare you.


I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best

It's not ok for your dad to threaten you.

Do you have a safety plan?
For example, do you have a personal bank account? If no, get one and start saving money. If yes, can you start saving money?
Do you have a lock on your bedroom door or are there locks in other rooms of your home? This way if violence does occur, you can go there.
If possible, do you have an escape plan and a safe place to stay? Ideally, if things might get violent, you'd leave.
I know the youth shelter in my community offers services for youth who aren't even homeless but experience violent homes and need a safe place to hang out for a few hours when not in school, they might have something similar in your community.


Also, you might want to consider reaching out to social services; it doesn't have to be child protective services, but it could be. Like I said, you could reach out to a local youth shelter, as they often provide other services beyond beds for youth experiencing homelessness.

If you're dad is already being abusive, confronting him alone without a social worker or something might be more dangerous for you then not.

I don't know if this helps, but I would strongly recommend reaching out to professionals who can help make sure your safety is a priority. I don't care if your dad has never been physically violent to you before, threatening to beat your child is very alarming and abusive in itself. So please try to be safe and try to access local services or call a national hot line if you can (all can be searched by Google for your region)

Thanks for the support guys,

Rest assured there’s little reason to be concerned. Both me and my dad were really mad in the moment but we’ve mostly made up now, I actually have a good relationship with him despite him being quite temperamental.

He has never been abusive to me, my siblings or my mother, in fact, he’s very loving. He can get really mad in the moment though, this probably having been the worst case in a while. I won’t lie though, I have felt unsafe around him at times despite knowing it’s mostly empty talking that he does. Probably more something we need to work on personally rather.
