"Father" issues.

    • "Father" issues.

      Well, my dad has been abusive my whole life. It used to be worse but I didn't use to let it get to me. I don't exactly know how to handle it anymore. The thing is, I don't think it's bad enough for the authorities to do anything about it. My friend told me it would have to leave a mark, which it had, it just doesn't last very long and I DON'T bruise easy. Also, he spanks me. And not for discipline. Like playfully, like how a guy would do to his girlfriend. I didn't think it was abnormal til I got friends and noticed their dads didn't do that. So please. Any advice on what to do about this would be lovely. Thanks.

      My dad playfully spanks me. Not like what guys would do to their girlfriends... But still. And my dad is slightly abusive too... And I think u should tell someone with higher authority. Maybe not necessarily the police? But like a teacher u can trust or aunt or uncle, just an adult u can trust and they will probably help u figure it out.
