  • Tell someone you trust (church, school, neighbor, police) so you get help as soon as possible. Your mom might be contributing to your having difficulties for the rest of your life. Please get some help any way you can and make her stop the abuse. You deserve to be loved and protected and if your mother cannot do that, then someone else needs to have the chance to help you turn into a happy, healthy and balanced adult.
  • Call 911 when she does this. REPORT HER to someone, don't take it out on yourself, it's not YOUR fault.
  • you should tell someone and tell them soon i had the same problem but a friend helped me get through it and someone u trust will help u to!
  • I already posted my answer - I am concerned about you, your situation, you stating your age on the internet - assuming this is not a joke. You may want to remove that question to avoid attracting "predators". Whatever you do, don't run away unless it is to go to people in your own family you trust or to the police. Blessings.
  • Hi Fruit Loop, I'm really sorry to hear you are going through this awful experience. I can appreciate that the amount of pressure this puts on you must be huge. Don't lose hope though, you aren't alone even though it may feel like it right now. In the uk we have a service called ChildLine which thousands of kids phone every day. I think there must be something like this in America, I would think you could google for it, but someone else here may know the name of it. If you don't think you can tell someone you know you might be able to talk to one of these support networks. However if you can talk to people you know, I would advise you to talk to your teacher, don't be fobbed off by someone who is busy, go to the school counsellor directly if you can. If your school doesn't have a counsellor or you don't like your teacher then look in your local directory for the social services they are set up to help families in crisis. They can even help your mom get some help to feel better so she won't keep doing this. You could also try talking to another family member. It's possible close family already suspect that all is not well. Whatever you decide to do, do it today, take a deep breath and do it. The sooner you do it, the sooner your mom gets help and the sooner your sadness stops. You don't need to run away, you don't need to hurt yourself. Please let us know how you get on.
  • talk to someone..a counselor at school..or call a hotline.. try this page: http://dmoz.org/Kids_and_Teens/Health/Abuse/ it has lots of sites and organizations that can help you. Including: http://www.childhelp.org/resources/learning-center/for-kids You Should Know No one has the right to abuse you. You don't deserve to be abused. If you are being abused, you are a victim. It's not your fault that you are being treated this way. It is wrong that you are suffering this pain, fear or sadness. You are not alone. Other kids suffer abuse, too. Sometimes abusers scare or threaten kids so they won't tell. There are people who care about you and want to help you. If you are being abused, please tell a safe person - that's someone you can trust like a teacher, counselor, school nurse, neighbor or parent. You can also talk to a Childhelp USA hotline counselor. CALL 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) then push 1 to talk to a hotline counselor. The Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The hotline counselors work with translators who speak 140 languages to help people who call and speak something other than English. All calls are anonymous. (The hotline counselors don't know who you are and you don't have to tell them.) Please make the call.
  • I know how you feel and i really wish that I could put this answer that would have all the answers in the world for you....I mean something that would really help. But I'm stuck in the same place. I try to talk to my friends about it. Hang in there buddy. if you ever need to talk...Here's my email. straylightrun_1254@hotmail.com I'm really sorry...It's a terrible thing to go through. take care
  • call the police or child protection soon
  • The last thing you need to do is add more misery to your life. Running away will only get you into trouble with juvy, you don't want that. Cutting won't take away the pain you feel it will only add to the depression. You are very young, you won't live like this for ever. So what you need to do is talk to an adult that you trust, someone who won't tell your mom and get you in more trouble. The time will come for your mom to know but not till you're ready and strong enough for that. Okay, do you have any relatives you can trust? Any teachers you trust? Who ever you choose to talk to, tell them the truth, all of it. This will be a big step. Then you need to let someone help you, it won't be easy, they will need to get you away from this abuse. That's hard. But, it might make your mom realize what she's doing to you. Do this soon. Don't wait till you get abused again. I know it's hard, but you have to do this for your self, you can do this. Be strong, life will only get better. Don't be afraid, telling isn't wrong, no one can help you if they don't know. Get out of this situation before you do anything else. I've been thru it too. I'll be waiting to hear from you, I'll be here if you need me. ((((((((((((((((HUG))))))))))))))))))
  • For goodness sake, TELL SOMEBODY. A teacher at school who you like would be good. Somebody you trust. Don't suffer alone, TELL SOMEONE, TODAY!!
  • Honey, your mother is sick and is probably suffering some kind of mental illness. It is imperative that you seek help immediately before that illness gets literally beaten into you. There is plenty of good advice on this forum, but there are city and state organizations that can help you. The most important thing to do is to report this abuse to your school officials, but if your not in school, the police have special victims units set up to recieve you and place you in a safe enviroment until your mother gets help. Don't wait, tell someone now, before it's to late. In todays world there is no need to runaway from your problems, while there are so many other alternatives around you. I wish you well.
  • You need to tell someone like a teacher, a police officer, or a child welfare worker. And do it today. You're mother is not stable and you need to get out of that house. But do it the right way. Do not run away that will only get you in trouble and put your life at more risk. Do not cut or kill yourself it won't solve anything. And get your age off of this question before a preditory latches onto you. And believe me you're just what they are looking for.
  • you know what's really sad is my grandaughter is being abused by her mother too and even I'm scared to go get my grandchildren help. and she cuts herself.
  • You have to tell someone in authority. Make sure you do it in a way that makes for a clean break from her. You don't want to tell someone and not have anything be done about it, and, then, have to go home to her (She might kill you if she finds out). So, make sure it will be a clean break. And, then you can get away from her and be put in a peaceful situation where you can heal (mentally and physically) and realize that it's not your fault, etc, etc.
  • call the cops and put her ass in jail.

  • Talk to somebody about it and continue talking until someone does something about it. It could be a school counselor or a friend from school. Maybe you could get ideas from your friends' parents.
  • Talk to your guidance counselor at school they will help you and get you the proper help that you need. and it is very important that you do this right away.the cutting in later years looks not very nice. and you don't want that. you take care of your self and go to them right away.
  • I was in your shoes once. Contact me privately for a conversation. EDIT: If you do not want to talk with me, then immediately seek out your schools guidance counselor; that is why they are always on staff to help with family and other social matters.
  • If you are feeling suicidal now, please stop long enough to read this. It will only take about five minutes. I do not want to talk you out of your bad feelings. I am not a therapist or other mental health professional - only someone who knows what it is like to be in pain. I don’t know who you are, or why you are reading this page. I only know that for the moment, you’re reading it, and that is good. I can assume that you are here because you are troubled and considering ending your life. If it were possible, I would prefer to be there with you at this moment, to sit with you and talk, face to face and heart to heart. But since that is not possible, we will have to make do with this. http://www.metanoia.org/suicide/
  • I had the same experience with my mom (she was doing the same to me). At 14, it was pretty bad and I felt much like you did. I finally found myself a social worker and a therapist (all on my own!) that supported me and empowered me. I surrounded myself with friends and (when I was old enough) got a job. I found these things gave me freedom. I tried to be out as much as possible (away from her) at the library, out with friends on weekends, at work, etc. all these things helped me hold on until I was old enough to leave.
  • Tell your teacher, tell your principal, tell your counselor at school, and the school nurse. Your mom should not be doing this to you, and you do not deserve it. We don't know you, and you don't know us. You do need to go to someone personally and talk to them about this. As you can see from all of these answers - we love and care about you, and we don't even know you. I am sure you can get the help you need from someone at your school. Make sure you tell as many of them as possible. No child deserves to be abused in any way. I am so sorry that you are going through this. We love you :)
  • i have been there, so please talk to an adult you can trust, like a teacher or friends parent they will put you in touch with someone who can stop this happening to you. if you havnt got anyone like that and are in the uk you can ring childline and they will help. stay strong sweetheart my thoughts are with you. give people a chance to help and it will work out.
  • You will at some time have to make a choice and that choice will be do you want to put up with these beatings say something to some one do you have a Aunts uncles, granf parents. I won't right any more for this is serious and should be put in the hands of professionals good luck and end.
  • listen, u are a special person ok. did you know that a male produces thousands even millions of sperm a day. U were chosen from all THAT!! that isn't chance. your life has a purpose. who knows your story could go a long way. your life is precious and we only have one earth life. how will you be remembered, if remembered at all. and finally do talk to someone. it will make you feel so much better. take care and God bless
  • tell your counseler at school, theres no excuse for that kind of abuse and you shouldn't have to suffer like that
  • I was in the same situation. And i cut myself at 19. still have 27 stitches on my wrist. I haven't seen her almost 15 years now. I managed to finish schools and sort of turned out to be okay. But i always have a hollow spot in my heart, it just doesn't get healed. And whenever i hear stories like this, makes me mad. Not every woman is qualified as a mother. I was ashamed to tell any of my friends or authorities, and a few i discussed with suggested me to talk it out, which never helped. No one wants to get involved in someone else's lives, specially dealing with teenagers. Avoid your mom as much as you can, and do not let her destroy your life. Abuse and depression are infectious, those who suffer drag people around them. focus on studying, so you can be whatever you want to be. Life can be so good if you can achieve what you genuinely want. And this is just a phase.
  • Call a children's help line immediately! Please!
  • You're not alone. I know how hard it is. Please talk to someone you can trust. Their are people out there that can help. Taking the first step to getting help is the hardest. Just remember you are a beautiful person, none of this is your fault and you don't deserve this.
