Your thoughts

Entle99

I have a very strict father, he's also over protective and controlling. If he is not shouting at me, he's exchanging words with my mom or shouting at my sister. It's so disturbing sometimes, I try by all means to act right but he never seems to be satisfied... It seems like he's never happy, he has even gotten physical with my mom. It's so painful and it makes me hate him. Sometimes I feel like killing him or wishing he would just die or go to prison. I feel like he's making our lives difficult and there's nothing we can do about it. I've begged my mother to divorce him but she keeps on saying it will take long to get finalized. I feel like I'm drowning and I could do with advice

Hey Entle99, we really appreciate you reaching out to us with your story. We know how hard that must have been for you. No one deserves to be bullied, controlled or abused in any way. We really think that it's important for you to speak to someone about you are going through. When some people are abused they tend to feel helpless and end up accepting how things are, so at this point it might be a good idea to speak to someone that is not your mom. This could be anyone from a relative like an aunt, a neighbor, or a teacher. Otherwise, you can also call the people at Childline SA. They will offer you counselling over the phone, in person and online. You don't need to give them your name and can contact them any time of the day or night. Contact them if you are scared, feel alone and if something is happening to you, or someone you know. They are here to help you! Don't forget you can contact them on their 24/7 Toll Free Helpline: 08 000 55 555 for help. Visit their website: http://www.childlinesa.org.za, Facebook and Twitter page for useful information.

There was a time where my father hit my mother and the following day my mom gave her a restraining order. So whoever the victim of abuse is between your mom and dad, may go to the nearest Magistrate court to get that order against the abusive spouse. Since my mother gave my dad that order, they were both summoned to court, my dad was warned and since he has never laid a hand on my mother.
