Unhappy I'm getting sent to 'Child Services' :( - November 11th 2010, 06:14 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of suicide, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread therefore might not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I've been getting bullied at school so I've been taking a few days off of school, the school rang my mum and told my mum that I have been wagging (this has been happening through-out the course of 3 terms), Mums pissed off doesn't believe that I could be getting bullied as I don't have any 'bruises' and have never been through this before. Theres not a day I dont get called 'fag gay' get things thrown at me, get told to commit, get dirty looks or chairs thrown at me.

I have asspirations in life and tell my mum i want to go to University shes told me that I'll never make it. She has never supported me with anything, My step-father has repedetly hit me, thrown me into walls, called me worthless (as has my Mum) and now they are sending me to Child Services.

I'm 15 in about a month and live in Victoria in Australia. What are my rights? I do understand I can go to a family member, is it possible for me to go to a close friend whos about 28 (but not related to me) ? Just need to know whats going to happen to me tomorrow morning.
Please help

Thats a horirble situation to be in, but do you really WANT to be at home with an abuse step father and a mother who tells you that you wont get anywhere in life and doesnt believe you get bullied?

I don't really know anything about the legal system in australlia,, try to talk to a teacher at school, or your close friend who is 28 about this

best of luck, im sorry i couldnt of been more help!xxxxx

that is an awful situation, but nobody has a right to hurt you like that (emotionally/physically). i know that you wish that you could tell them what you really think, but lets be realistic here.

satelliteheart is right. you need to talk to somebody maybe a counselor (i've been there, they are actually helpful).

best of luck.
