Alright guys I'm in a dilemma right now. My mother hit me with a phone cord and it left a scar. I have two options go rat her out or be silent to avoid ending up in a crappy foster home. See, the problem is I want to tell someone but then my mom has been through mental trauma of her own and I don't want her locked away and then I end up in a foster home with parents worse than my mom. As much as this hurts me inside I want to do something about this. It's eating away at me and makes me want to die. When you are poor and in Texas you don't have that many options.

The only question you need to answer is: do you feel safe in your current living situation? If the answer is no, then you need to tell someone. Depending on the situation, you may not be taken out of your current home, your mother may just have to attend anger management classes or something like that? (that's an assumption though, I've never been through something like this) If it is serious, remember that many foster homes are lovely places. The reason we believe there are lots of horrible ones is because those are usually the ones that are seen in the news/tv. And even if you were to end up in a bad foster home, if you were brave enough to tell someone about your mother, I'm confident that you would be brave enough to tell someone about bad foster parents.

I hope everything works out for you. Please PM me if you need to talk to someone .
