    It all started quite early,

    I don't remember when. He wanted to "teach" me how to do stuff, like chopping wood, splitting it into manageable chunks and the like. I thought he was going to show me first. Instead, he gave flimsy me an axe far too heavy for my small body and spaghetti-like arms. When he saw...

    When He Loses Control

    Whenever my dad is home I feel like I am walking on eggshells - never certain what kind of mood he's in. Most of the time he's great and is very entertaining to be around, but about once every two-three months he loses it. He gets angry and does something crazy. For example he'll...

    Well Yeah...

    So whenever my little brother starts a fight with me or an argument he knows all my buttons to push to make me wanna kill him. Then when my dad gets involved it is somehow all my fault and my brother is a perfect child. I'm tired of this ****.

    Butterflies In My Stomach

    Every time my dad comes home, I feel very anxious and don't even know what to do next. My father yelled at me even I make the smallest error, and a day doesn't go by that he doesn't go mad. I am living in constant fear, and my father has actually hit my head before. Once with his...

    Perfection Needed

    Every since I was a little girl, my dad's had this "tough" "suck it up" way of parenting. It's fine and dandy for sports, but once I get home, everything has to be perfect. Here's a few examples: 1. I preordered a new book with my own hard earned money at age 13, and I waited...

    My Father Would Beat Us To Submission

    I grow up with a scary father who was very strict with me and my older brother. He justified it, by saying that’s how he was raised in Russia. My American born mother never got into any of the problems we had with our father, she let him do whatever he wanted…I don’t think...

    Normally my father sticks to emotional abuse

    but sometimes he goes a little bit over the line into physical. He doesn't beat me or my mother up or anything, it's just been spread out instances. For example, when I was around 12 he slapped me in the middle of Walmart. I don't remember what it was over or what I had done...

    I never really have been too close with him ever since I was little and up until now. my father doesn't hit me or abuse me, (although when I was younger he did hit me with a shoe everywhere on my body over and over again, but I guess thats considered spanking and I guess that's...

    Scared To The Point Of Sickness

    As many of my stories demonstrate, my dad was not the best person. And when he was angry, he really held grudges. For a long time. Sometimes when I was younger, the thought of him being home from work made me naucious (however you spell that) and I would often throw up shortly...

    He's Very Bipolar.

    I wasn't always scared of him.

    It's just his attitude that makes me afraid. My mom always talked about how he loved me when I was a baby and how he was proud of me. But when I got older, things just changed. Everyday he'd come home as his usual self. Happy, optimistic, and somewhat weird. But when I did...

    he's not mean at all. He's sweet, caring and patient. But once he gets mad..oh boy..You're dead meat. Literally, dead meat.

    My dad was stalking my mom's house this weekend.

    He drove by for an hour at a time and obsessively called and texted. My brothers are so used to locking their doors, not for privacy but because it was the only way to keep my dad away from them. My youngest brother used to sit on the other side of his bed with an air soft gun...

    But somehow I'm terrified of him. He gets mad but he doesn't yell, he's not abusive but he's kind of strict I guess. Only a little. But I get paranoid sometimes. Like for example when we sit down on the dinner table, I would wait for him to finish and stand up before I do. I...
