i've only talked about this with some people in the chat before no one around here but i dont even know if this counts as abuse my dad's an angry person. he doesnt really know how to deal with kids see, my grandpa, his dad, died when he was four so my mom always tells me that he never had that father figure, so he never had that example and i suppose i can understand that dad sometimes has outbursts of anger. he yells, he insults... and sometimes, he hits. Hes thrown me down in chairs, against walls, slapped me and punched my brothers. Though this doesnt happen every day. Maybe once or twice a week, if its a good month maybe even every other week. I dont think this is abuse? but i have no idea. haha. i just sometimes have no idea how to deal with this. or if it even needs to be dealt with.
