Sometimes my mom hits me.
Sometimes my mom hits me. Details
She doesn’t do it a lot, but when she does it leaves really bad marks, sometimes even blood. I don’t really understand why she does it, but she says I need “discipline.” It’s always because of the dumbest things, like when I forget to clean up my room, or if I take a break from my homework. It’s not like I’m doing anything that bad. It’s really starting to freak me out.
Sometimes she hears me crying even when I’m trying to be quiet. She tells me to suck it up. I told her I’m starting to feel depressed, but she thinks I’m being dramatic. Does she even care about me?
Now my stepdad is involved and he’s threatening to hit me twice as hard. I just don’t understand why they’re doing this. I’m not a bad kid, but everything I do seems to piss them off. I feel trapped.
