This is about YOU, not your boyfriend. His father WILL do it again. If not to you, then to someone else. Keeping this secret does NOT do you or your boyfriend any good. Report what he did to you. Reporting him might give your boyfriend the courage he needs to get out of that house. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

continue, help you first so you CAN HELP YOUR BOYFRIEND,

here is the other thing you need to think logical
if this dad sick as he is for any reason not your doing or your boyfriends period

if you tell now then you both together face this and free of his control and he free to , then he face it
other wise he will become a monster worse hurt others maybe who knows

but i would first tell a person counselor you can be anonomous with them and you can do it all with out your boyfriend knowing press charges

protect yourself then him the boyfriend

i know you think its a risk to your boyfriend, but havent you heard stories like this, years later they find out and all but he sounds worse
a dad those stories most of the time are brothers or peers and all, just get it over with .

and one last thing i am sick and tired of
substances of excuse for adults doing crap

its his character not the substances period
my sons do that too make excuses for why this and that thier step dad or dad
alonon teaches people to have compasion but not abuse, haveing a desease is a responsibility i been told or heard, my family had something and the cousnelor said well its your job to take care of you , if he is sick then its his responsibilty to take care of himself not abuse and make you and your boyfriend become sick
like someone who needs shot and all they do it
same exact thing, sick is sick, you ignore it die
and or you take care of it, period your choice
only you know if signs there
you need to tell. just do it with help and the right way lead up to it tell police or whoever you decide but tell protect you all these privacy laws are not just for kids and medical and if medical then privacy does apply
see how you can do this. you can do it.
then you did the right thing and just put on all signed things privacy, ask for that , but tell

True Love is being honest with yourself
by: maurice

Darlene, with her ever loving and respect for each of her visitors has given you encouraging caring words both for yourself and you boyfriend. Jenny2. don't be fooled that you truly love your boyfriend if you don't tell on his father. Darlene has given you the correct way forward, she truly knows best Jenny2. Please heed her words to you. Safeguarding yourself and others from that dangerous man is the most important thing for you to do. You, won't be helping your boyfriend if you don't. He must learn too that drinking won't help him and his father. If his father beat him because of his drinking. He may need help too, with your care and love of him I am sure he will trust and respect you for sugesting it to him. Be safe yourself first, then you and your boyfriend will value and respect each other in love. Trust yourself, you will do what is the best for you, your boyfriend: Tell someone closest to you or go tell a counsellor how you feel. Being abused is painful and effects even the strongest of us. Jenny2 Love yourself, value yourself, Respect yourself, be gentle and kind to yourself, I can, I will, I must just because I am WORTH it. Ok Jenny, stay safe, be safe, You are a very inteeligent girl/teenager.young adult. Always believe in yourself.
