Hello, Maddie!

Just to clarify, what do you mean by "whip"? Do you mean that your parents spank you? If so, that is definitely not an appropriate punishment given your age. If by "whip" you mean actually hitting you (not just on the butt), then that is physical abuse, and your parents could be charged with child abuse for treating you in that manner.

So if we're talking about spanking, I would suggest talking to your parents about a more appropriate punishment... such as grounding you when you've broken the rules, and then sitting down with you and explaining why you are being grounded. That is a much more age-appropriate response.

If you are being physically abused, then you need to tell a trusted adult - NOT your mamaw, if she also hits you. You could call the police non-emergency line and ask about your options, such as getting in touch with child protective services. You could also contact a neighbor or a teacher and ask if they could help you figure things out.
