Of course it's child abuse: emotional child abuse and physical child abuse. And your father is enabling it by not stopping it, by not keeping you safe from harm. Your mother has serious emotional problems that she is taking out on you, probably from her own past. This is not about you; it's about her. Please contact one of the hotlines listed on my stories page, depending on where you live, in order to talk to someone confidentially. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

same story
by: touched2mysoul

I read your story and I can relate to so much. My mother did similar things to me that you experienced with your mother. My father also didnt protect me. My mother told people that I was sleeping with my father! She was jealouse of me and now i realize that... however, her issues are no excuse for what she put me thru. I read your story and can relate more than you know.

The sooner, the better...Darlene is right!
by: Anonymous

Hannah, what your mother is still doing to you is really pathetic and ungrateful because she is truly twisted, confused, sick, warped, cruel and sadistic in her own ways of thinking...not to mention a control freak and she needs help. She didn't deserve to have such a beautiful daughter like you...but, most of all, you certainly didn't deserve to have such a mother. Making jokes about embarrassing you in front of the whole store with strangers in it really shows me how uneducated and ignorant she really is. Oh, and she is wrong. You are not nasty; you are beautiful. You are not a liar; you don't abuse her; in fact, she is the one that is really abusing you. You are not a bad girl; in fact, you are a sweet, kind, loving girl. You are not worthless; you are worthy of love, dignity and respect. Oh, and the fact that she and your dad don't get along is not your fault (and never will be); in fact, you were the child, she was the adult. She had all the power and even to this day, she still misuses it. And all those cruel things that she said to you really comes from the devil's mouth and, like I said, she needs help...but you need help too, so the sooner you tell someone, the better. Darlene is right. Please tell someone you really trust.

Maltreated by an aunt.
by: J.T

That is a shocking story of abuse. I was treated in a similar manor by an aunt (who was not even related to me by blood).I remember her pulling my hair, grabbing me by my arms or shoulders and digging her thumbs into the joint where it is very sensitive to intentionally cause pain, shaking me and on three different occasions locking me in my bedroom for 6 to 8 hours,as "punishment" and would blame me for what other kids did. The most sickening thing about this is my parents allowed her to treat me in this manor sometimes right in front of them!! It is bad enough when a parent does this crap, but to allow another adult to abuse there child is pretty disgusting.

Seriously, get out of that house!
by: Anonymous

Please try to get out of that house as soon as you can, Hannah; you've suffered enough. Your mother is mentally ill. As soon as you get away from her, your healing can start in earnest.
