When a parent does this sort of thing they are a future danger to their children. Yes, you are fortunate you didn't hit your head and that you weren't seriously harmed. The fact is, your father has a right to remove possessions for discipline. The fact that you fought that does not bode well with the system; the authorities would not see what he was trying to do as abusive, and nor do I. Parents have the right to discipline their children. But he crossed a line when he threw you across the room; that was physical abuse. Please contact one of the hotlines listed on my stories page, depending on where you live, in order to talk to someone confidentially. You don't deserve to be abused, Brenna. You certainly deserve help for the fact that you were. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me. I send you love, light and positive energy.

Hi Brenna,
Parents can discipline their children.Sometimes
parents do not realize their own strength and can
hurt their children and not mean it.However the thing here is that if you don't feel safe please don't hesitate to speak to the school councellor and tell them how you are feeling about your safetiness and they can help you right away if you need any help.They can also give you a referance number if you need someone to speak to.
What I am saying is that there is help out there
for you whatever you need.There is nothing wrong with taking advantage of the help if you need it.

you have the power to change your life
by: Jill

Brenna,
My father used to do the same kind of thing with me when I was a teenager too. He was completely out of control. He stopped when I found something better to do with my time than fight. I went out and got involved with school, friends, and work and stayed far from trouble or anything that would give him a reason to start another fight.

Your dad isn't behaving like a mature adult when he chooses not to treat you like the precious child that he was blessed with. He's never grown up inside and is insecure with his words. He will continue to behave this way with you until you are able to see what's important in your life. What's important is that you need food, shelter and safety, and love. None of the things in your room he chooses to fight over matter as much as your health and well being.

The big picture is that every person in the world deserves to be treated with dignity. Most likely no one has ever treated him that way, and he doesn't know how to do it. Stuff is just stuff. You are what matters. You have the power to change your life by choosing to not fight with him anymore and treating yourself and others with dignity. No matter what he does, you can rise above his behavior and find things that matter more than fighting.

Best wishes
