Singled Out by Parents

by Malia
(Texas, USA)

Right now I am a 15 year old girl, the second child out of 4 children in my family. I have been treated very badly verbally from my parents for the past 2 years. I also have 3 other siblings that are placed on a pedestal by both of my parents. I find that every time they do something wrong I always get the blame and punishment from them (even if the situation is seen in front of them, or even if I am not present at the situation).


I have done some research, and this is a form of emotional abuse.

In the past it had lead me to hurting myself intentionally and having suicidal thoughts. Every single time I step out of my room I am scared that I would get attacked by my parents. The people who raised me from the day I was born. I had remembered many good memories with them, but I still can remember more bad than good. but all of this belittling and bullying, it was like this all happened out of nowhere. And I wonder if children should be afraid of their parents.
