Your mother is NOT right about the way you're being treated...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Dory, I doubt that very many people on this website would be saying "it can't be that hard," because most of the visitors of this site KNOW with absolute certainly that what you are dealing with is tremendously difficult and that it affects everything in your life. But more importantly, this is about you, Dory. It's about YOU and how YOU feel.

Your mother is not thinking clearly when she says what she says to you about the mistreatment you deal with at the hands of your brothers. It is NOT your fault. You DO NOT deserve to be physically and/or emotionally abused, either by your brothers, or by your parents—or anyone, for that matter. When your mother says those things to you, she is neglecting your needs. It is her job as your mother to keep you safe from harm. From what you've disclosed, the situation between you and your brothers is way beyond sibling rivalry. You need to be protected from your brothers.

I urge you to contact the Australian Kids Help Line at 1800 55 1800. KHL have counsellors who will listen to you and discuss your options. The service is available 24 hours a day for children, youth and young adults between the ages of 5 – 25. Their counselling services are free, confidential, and you can remain anonymous. Dory, you're worth getting this kind of help for yourself. I hope you do.

i cant say that i've been put through all that i have been beaten by my brothers and they hurt emotionally too. i have a very low self esteem because many people treat me disrespectfully but when it comes to your own brothers telling you those are the most painful moments because they should be there to help you feel better.... trust me i understand and as of now we are all living in different places and although i can miss them its a great relief at times to not have all that bulls**t!!!!
