First of all, both your parents had problems, serious problems, and those problems resulted in various types of abuse against you. You're absolutely right...parents who treat their children as though they are a confidante and share with that child the other parent's indiscretions, or make that child be the parent to siblings, is being abusive. It's a form of emotional abuse, in particular, exploiting. Secondly, your father had no right to belittle you, call you names, or hurt you in any way. He used the lies he called you in order to further control and manipulate you. Lastly, your mother was being neglectful when she encouraged you not to tell
when she knew your father had physically hurt you. If you still feel the need, consider further counseling to help you deal with the effects of what you endured, Sasha. Yes, your father needs that kind of help too, but that's up to him to get for himself. What you must do is take back control of your own life. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
