Your father is not only emotionally abusive, he's been physically abusive as well when he grabbed you by the throat. But don't assume that you'll be taken away by reporting what he is doing to you. And even if you are, you have to know that your father is a dangerous man and that you need to be in a safe place. His repeated threats are nothing short of terrorizing. I urge you to contact Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone about the abuse you are still dealing with. They are staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counselors who will listen to you. They are not a reporting agency, although they can help you through the process of reporting if you decide to disclose the abuse. You can visit their website by copying & pasting the following URL into your browser: http://www.childhelp.org/get_help

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

The Concealment Factor
by: sara

Hi, as I'm perusing the stories here and comparing them to my own I notice something that I just don't understand and hope someone has some answers to. I can (unfortunately) understand when a parent abuses a child due to drugs or alcohol. Not that the drugs cause the abuse, but I can see how it could inflame or uninhibit someone who has underlying aggressive tendancies. But what about the parent who abuses a child behind closed doors and is wiley enough to put on a good persona to the public. They are not on drugs of any kind. Unless rage counts as their drug of choice. Is rage addictive? I had a mother who seemed empowered and addicted to rage, but only towards a particular child and only in secret behind closed doors. If anyone else was around she'd project sweetness and light modulating her tone of voice, even the glint in her eyes. Once we were alone again, bam, back to murdurous rage, slapping , shaking, throwing dishes, calling me a spoiled b***h, sl*t etc, and wishing I would die. And threatening to throw me out on the streets (and take away money (from my gramma), access to food, clothes) if I told anyone how she treated me. She'd also manipulate my father and siblings to come against me as well. But the second we're in public it's like she'd switch into this alternate persona. How do you explain someone who abuses a child in secret, is smart enough to conceal it, never did drugs, is not insane, etc. They obviously know what they're doing is wrong or else why put so much energy into concealing it. So how do you explain this type of abuser? What's going on with them??
