Up until we moved from Belgium To England, my dad used to drink every night. Me and my mum would run upstairs, lick the bedroom door and just go to sleep while we heard him screaming offensive things about my mum downstairs and sometimes he'd even go and bang the dishes together. Some of the time, not often, he used to hit us. Now, he's never home because of his work but I've noticed that my mum is different. Every time she gets too angry at me, she literally beats the s*** out of me and it's not often but she does. And then she apologised and I can't help but give in and continue on as if it never happened but it always happens again. My parents are Asian, so 'sit down and talk to them' doesn't work. What should I do?
if youre under legal age to be on your own or just scared do everything they say to avoid being beat. focus on school, get good grades, and move away for college when you can. you can only save yourself your mom has to reach her own conclusions about the situation. if youre scared for your life or hers call the fuzz immediately. life sucks sorry yours sounds hard but things might hopefully get better. just remember violence is never the answer, victims tend to follow in their offenders footsteps

Are you able to talk to anyone at your school about it? Or maybe a friend's mom or dad?
My father was almost exactly the same way when I was in high school, except instead of alcohol, it was prescription pain meds. It has been 5 years since I've been out of high school and I've had to move out of my parents' house for my own health and sanity. I'm still not 100% sure how this will resolve yet, but for now I have to focus on myself.
I wish you the best in your situation. Unfortunately, unless you want the police to be involved, there isn't much you can do. If it gets any worse, I would advise telling another adult. Your safety and well being is important. I'm sorry I couldn't be more help.
