don't run away.. but you should leave. find somewhere safe you can stay.. like at a friends house or with an aunt or an uncle or something.. living in the streets sucks. you need a place to stay.

Physical abuse is never a strategy that works in the long term to change behaviour without badly affecting the one being abused.<br />
<br />
Facial scalding could set up life long consequences for you that don't bear thinking about.<br />
<br />
Depending on your age and country, there would be a variety of options available for support. <br />
<br />
Initially I'd suggest you approach a family member to look for options to live elsewhere. If this is not supported, then a school or church group counselor might be able to intercede and set up something reasonable. It might be dislocating for a time but it's not healthy to live with people who use physical superiority to control and manipulate you. There are people in most countries with mandatory reporting requirements for abuse, these can include doctors, nurses, teachers etc. who have an obligation to get the authorities involved.<br />
<br />
If you have trouble finding someone supportive and helpful, please come back either directly by email, or to the group. Because you are under 18 your profile isn't accessible so it'll be up to you who you talk to.<br />
<br />
Sometimes the only safe ways to get through to bullies are either to knock them flat, or remove them from the situation (or you from it in this case).<br />
<br />
Please take some action, use professionals to help, and let us know where you're up to.

That's not a sign that is a big red flag. Remember this is not your fault. He is an abuser and you happen to be an easy target. I know this abuse can reek havoc on your self-esteem, don't let it. He is unconscious to your feelings and has some big issues going on.

ok, throws hot water on your purposely or because its discipline? how hot was the water, did it scald you and how hard does he hit you? if you run away you could become a prostitute and its a common thing to see in the city. If you go to child services I htink you have a better choice at getting a new home, document your abuse and describe your feelings, how he administers the abuse and how hard. If you havea camera take pictures if there are any bruises or broken skin. also, if anyone else in your family is getting abused. Take it to the police or child services.

Not much information here, but why jump out of the frying pan into the fire, you need a plan and to be safe. Not sure how old you are? Is it just you and your dad, where is your mother in all this? Hot water on the face is abuse, hitting well people have different views on that. Certainly you need to tell someone in the real world about what is going on at home. But don't live on the streets please. Get help and move to a place of safety.
