You didn't say where you live. If you live in a country that accepts child abuse as "discipline", then you don't have the recourse you would have if you lived somewhere like Canada or the USA. I do want you to know that you most definitely deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. Your parents are confused and twisted in their thinking. They don't know how to raise children in a loving way. And that leaves you feeling as you do. Please tell someone other than your friends what's happening in your home. The friend you told before who dissuaded you from reporting was wrong in her advice. By staying in your home you've been put in danger, physical and emotional danger. Please talk to someone who can help you. You deserve that kind of help. And just for the record, I LOVE the fact that you question what you're parents are doing, and that you want to be heard. We need people like you in the world, so I sincerely hope you'll stop harming yourself. I can see that you will be able to make such a difference in our world. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Your parents are out of control
by: Anonymous

Chloe, what your so-called parents did to you was pathetic and ungrateful because they are really twisted, cruel, sadistic, sick in their own ways of thinking...not to mention control freaks with uneducated minds. They didn't deserve to have such a beautiful daughter like you; you didn't deserve to have such uncaring, uneducated, unloving, ignorant, barbaric, psychotic, cruel, sadistic, sick, confused, ruthless beasts for parents. They should've been in prison for all those terrible crimes that they committed against you because you did nothing wrong. Oh, and their so-called disciplinary practices are not really discipline at all; it has nothing to do with love; in fact, it's all about control and manipulation...and you are not to blame; in fact, those two psychopaths are the ones to blame, not you, because they should've known better and loved and cherished you in the first place. Ireally hope that you are in a safe place now and that you will try counselling, and whatever you do, please erase all the memories about those sickos destroying your beautiful long hair...and I understand the fact that you wanted to keep your hair long and I can relate; in fact, when I was a teenager in high school, my so-called parents wanted to cut all of my hair off because they always hated long hair...and one day, I was 17 when my mom took me to a hair salon and forced a beautician to cut all my hair off, and after that, she said as soon as we got into my dad's car on our way home, "I hope lots of kids laugh their fool asses off at you when you come back to school because next time, you will think twice before you ask us for something!" while my dad just sat there and agreed while driving. Anyway to make this long comment short, again, I hope that you try counselling.

Perspective
by: Anonymous

You're a strong, brave person, and you know what you want. You know what was wrong, you already know, so BELIEVE your gut. There's a lot of help and knowledge out there, keep searching, keep working to create and improve your life. You've already made a lot of difference, and it's hard to feel the changes at first, but when you look back you'll be amazed. I believe in you, and I believe in shining examples like Darlene. It's possible; reach.

So little love shown...
by: Anonymous

My heart goes out to you, Chloe. All those years of trying to please your parents and not receiving love. I don't really know what to say...just to let you know that I read what you wrote.

Seriously, get out of that house!
by: Anonymous

Please try to get out of that house as soon as you can, Chloe; you've suffered enough. Your parents are mentally ill. As soon as you get away from them, your healing can start in earnest.
