what is my family afraid of? - June 17th 2011, 02:12 AM

When actions need to be taken my family don't do anything. They are way too passive. Like for example, When my cousin is being rebellious and needs her truck taken away my aunt don't do it. My aunt continues to let my cousin run over her. My step uncle isn't any good at all. He is cheating right now (as he told my bf) and they always get into a fight, he has hit her and calls my cousin names, yet again no actions are taken. They are plenty of times when the cops needed to be involved and they get mad everytime somebody tries too call them.

My step dad and my mom use to split up but she still let him come back even after the horrible things he has done such as accuse my mom and my uncle of incest, and he is still with my mom today and lives with us. My step uncle used to an a heavy drinker and as caused some big fights that involves hitting people's cars and trucks on purpose and everything, but my grandpa tried to call the cops when he hit is truck and take him to court over it, everyone got pissed at him. My uncle called to cops one time when my step uncle hit my aunt and my aunt cussed him out and tried to fight him over it...its just horrible, when people get into fights in my family they do not ever want to leave that person or take any actions against nothing whatsoever. another good example is that(even though this has never happen the other examples have,i am just trying to make a picture more clear) if my bf punched me in the face and my cousin called the cops and then I tried to fight with her because she called them to save my life, now that would be very stupid of me to do that and I really think what my family does is stupid as well.

Your family members don't know how to confront each other in more positive and effective ways. Unfortunately, the cycle will probably continue until one or more people decide they want to stop reacting in hostile manners and 1) take the appropriate legal action, and/or 2) calmly but firmly stand their ground. Have you tried talking to family members one-on-one, telling them what you've seen and how you think they would benefit from taking different approaches to potentially hostile situations?
