Chances are your father doesn't hate you at all, difficult as that is to believe right now. He certainly isn't responding to you in a "loving" way, that's for sure. But this isn't about your and who you are; it's all about HIM. Your father is dealing with problems in his own life (likely his own past) that he is taking out on you. He is going about things in a way that are driving you away from him, and he doesn't get that. When parents target their children in a violent way, they're seriously misguided. And that leaves you believing he hates you. What you must do, Aleseah, is to understand that what he is saying are lies. You are worthy of dignity and respect and love. But you must treat YOURSELF with that same dignity, respect and love, first and foremost. You can't control the way your father is and the way he responds. You can only control how YOU respond. It's not fair that you're in this situation. But you must reach out for the help you need to get through it. Talk to a school counsellor or a trust teacher. Contact Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone about the abuse you are still dealing with. They are staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counsellors who will listen to you. They are not a reporting agency, although they can help you through the process of reporting if you decide to disclose the abuse.

You don't deserve to be mistreated. You DO deserve help for the fact Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Hallo Aleseah. Like Darlene I feel the same way. I am thinking that your dads anger is not really for you unfortunately you appear to be his hitting board. You do not say whether your dad drinks, takes drugs etc.
Can you sit and talk to your mother about this because you should not be treated this way, no one should be. if you are unable to talk to your mum may be a teacher that you trust or a relative that you are close too. Never be afraid of telling because by telling your dad may receive the help that HE needs. It must be very confusing for you for your dads behavior to suddenly change towards you.
Alesah you must believe that you are in no way to blame and not take the guilt upon yourself that you are doing any thing wrong. Believe in yourself Aleseah, keep your grades up then you can go off to College/University and move away.
I wish you well dear, stay safe:)

Your dad is out of control
by: Anonymous

Aleseah, your dad is wrong. You are not stupid; you are smart and articulate. Something's seriously wrong with him because he has serious problems and he needs help, but you need help too, so please tell someone you trust and keep telling until he/she will finally listen to you and help you.
