Well just as the name of this thread suggests its about abuse. I'm sorry if this turns out to be an epically long essay but I would really appreciate some advice because in all honesty I really dont know what to do anymore..
Right my father has always had a history of violence whether it was in the home or not, with a stranger or a family member. But last night was the worst yet, in my opinion. I got home from my boyfriends house and decided to straighten my hair and from the kitchen I heard arguing from my dad and sister (she's eighteen but has special needs so has the mind age of about four) I thought nothing of it as they usually argue over petty things so I just carried on. Moments later my dad came into the front room and sat down to light up a fag, my sister followed him and continued to argue with him. It all got a little heated and she ran out the room calling him a *****. This is where he went a little bit crazy, he chased after her and from the kitchen I heard her scream. I ran in there and saw my dad grab her by the throat, throw her to the floor and start hitting her. Once me and my mum'd managed to get him off her, she lay in the corner crying and shaking. The night went on with my mum and dad arguing about her and eventually it led to my dad telling my mum to **** off or he'd beat her too. After yelling about me saying I 'should just move out and piss off out his life' he stormed out of the house.
I came home today and now my mum's acting like nothings happened, this normally happens but this is the worse my dad has ever been. I'm scared that next time this happens there wont be any stopping him. What can I do? I feel so worthless and I hate him but I cant just tell it to his face as I'm scared of what he'll do.. Please help in anyway possible, any advice is muchly appreciated. Thankyou for taking the time to read this
