There is no one answer fits all in such situations. You have the right to defend yourself. You do not have the right to harm another person. If your brother is harming you and your parents are doing nothing to stop it, they are being neglectful. It's the neglect that's child abuse. Parents are responsible to ensure their children are kept safe, even from each other. That said, it's not uncommon for siblings to fight, but when there is a size, age or strength difference that puts the other child at risk, then it's up to the parents or guardians to step in. You didn't share where you are from, therefore I can only point you to 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 mistreated. The fact that you have thought about suicide means you need help. Please reach out for that help by calling one of those numbers. I send you love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

The Horror
by: Anonymous

I can't believe that your parents would abandon you to that sick, sadistic monster of a brother and allow him to beat and berate you 24/7...how dare they! Your brother is deeply troubled and sadistic. I really hope that you're out of that house now...and if not; you can and will be in further danger and he can and will continue to brutalize you because he himself has no respect for you and even your rights as a human being; he's proven that already just by those nasty injuries that he's already inflicted upon you. Next time he lays a hand on you ever again, please consider reporting him to the authorities ASAP!

In school, they have to be fair. They often will tell students to walk away. Other times if one student hits & the other hits back they have to make it fair & punish both.

You have the right to defend yourself, you should defend yourself. There are always repercussions, whether it's a fat lip or a talk with the principal. But sometimes those repercussions are worth fighting back for. No one wants to get in trouble at school, but when we fight back often we're only in trouble ONCE....because the bully finally backs off.

Suicide is never the answer. This is YOUR life & you have the right to KEEP it & DEFEND it. Don't let anyone take away your rights, they are yours alone.

you don't deserve this
by: Tim L.

Sibling abuse is a serious crime that is often overlooked and ignored. Your brother has no right to hit you or put you down--your parents are failing their duty to provide you with a safe, comfortable environment at home. When the bully lives with you at home and can access you 24/7 to assault and humiliate you it is much worse than anything that can happen at school. Your health teacher sounds really insensitive and boorish; he should be reporting what you say, not threatening you and saying it is your fault if you tried to hit back once.

Even if someone is the same size and age as you, they can still be so much stronger and have a violent hatred in them that you don't have. You deserve to be protected and helped out of this situation. Please try telling someone else who will actually care and want to help you.
