Both parents are responsible
by: Darlene Barriere

The fact that your father used his knowledge as a psychology student to further torture you was inhumane. And you are right when you talk about your mother; she definitely owed you and your siblings some protection. She enabled your father by [not] removing you from the dangerous and abusive situation. It is for this reason that your mother has just as much responsibility here as your father does.

Congrats on ending the cycle of abuse. You must have worked very hard to ensure your own children did not suffer the way you did.


And I do support your decision not to have anything to do with your father until he acknowledges what he did and apologizes. Besides, who knows what he'd be like as a grandfather; I wouldn't trust him.


All the best.

I feel your pain
by: Francine

I'm sorry that happened to you. Well, my parents sometimes threatened to send me to a mental institution for a long time, so it's not your fault. You should tell someone on your dad, so that way you'd be safe even sooner as soon as your dad could've been thrown to jail for good. Never ever trust your dad! Remeber, that's my motto: I trust no abusers at all, and no abusers will ever touch me!

Im her oldest daughter
by: Tabath

My grandfather was a horrible grandparent. He beat me and verbally abused me when i lived with my grandma. I am Very Proud of my mother for protecting me and my sister and brother form that kindda shit. To this day my mom will always be my hero.

So to my mom i have to say Thank you For always being there and providing us with the love and affection that kids need and for gettting me out of my Grandmas care and Grandpas when you did.


I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART. THANK YOU!

Try and talk to him...
by: Anonymous

I don't know... I truly despise what your father did to you, but, you shouldn't hate him... or anything. The one thing you have to remember is that even though forgiving is hard and maybe he doesn't deserve it, it's the right thing to do. Don't stoop down to his level and do the wrong thing. Just like my mom USED to tell me, two wrongs don't make a right.


Maybe if you try and talk to him, and explain how he made you feel... maybe, just maybe he'll realize how wrong he was and apologize. And if he doesn't... then you just have to leave it. I know how you feel there.
And I agree, more than anything, you deserve for him to say," I was wrong. I was very, very wrong and I apologize."
