Dealing With Abusive Parents
If you're a child or teen dealing with abusive parents, some "first aid" tips that can be done are: 1.) Do not "talk back,"scream, curse, or physically retaliate at your parents no matter what they do; 2.) Try to reason with them when they're not in a bad mood; 3.) If needed, get help from a trusted relative, counselor, church friend, or facility like BB163; 4.) If there's violence and your parents are unwilling to work on changing, have a plan to keep away from abuse physically and emotionally, possibly by living somewhere; 5.) Don't burn bridges, pray for your parents.
