I'm scared.

I'm scared of her. I am so so scared of her. I don't care too much that she'll just me physically or mentally but I get really scared when she threatens my brothers. One is 5 and the other is 12. I know she purposely threatens their lives just to scare me but it's working. I'm scared that one day she'll actually kill them. I mean she has no problem with hurting us.

She used to hit us with broomsticks, water hoes, wooden spoons, she used to throw us with stuff, etc.

She only hits us with her hand now because my dad is home almost every day.

I want to get away so badly but I'm so scared of leaving them alone with her. I told my dad about everything but he's a wimp when it comes to her.

I just don't wanna see them get hurt anymore. Please. Just tell me what I can do...

Re: I'm scared.

How old are you and where do you live? There should be a system where you can report the abuse. This sounds serious!

I hope you're okay. Stay safe. Sometimes it's hard to make the right decision..

Stay strong and know that justice will come but it might be a long, hard road!

I'm 15 and I live in Germany, though I'm not actually German.

The thing is that me and my dad are very afraid that she will get custody over my youngest brother because the court usually favours the birth mother.

Most people tell that, that won't happen but it's still a big risk. I know why she is the way she is.

She also used to me abused as a child and we have also offered her help but she doesn't want to get help cause she thinks it'll change the person she is.

I’m very sorry to hear about what you’re going through.. no one should feel insecure scared and threatened in their own home!

The only solution I see since your father knows the truth but won’t act is that you reach out to relatives, family friends, neighbors or even the authorities so that she could answer for her actions!

You should not accept this and you should be able to stand up for yourself and your little brothers before she traumatize them even further..

No one will accept this if you reach out to the authorities, I don’t know where you live but I don’t there’s any law that allows this type of abuse

Please act fast but calmly for their sake, don’t let her suspect that you’re on to her I’m afraid she’d get voilent and I don’t want you to be harmed

Take it seriously and you will be able to get help!
