well so im not quite sure. but my dad he wont hear me out and whenever we get into an argument he tells me to shut up. he calls me things like "fraud" or "fucking liar" and yeah... sometimes when he gets really mad he hits me. like when i piss him off. but thats just a discipline thing right? not abuse? because theres no blood or marks or anything and it doesnt hurt that much. and one time i tried to push him back but he got madder. so well... yeah. hes not an alcoholic or anything so this is not abuse right? i mean hes just under a lot of stress. but hes a good guy. he just has a bit of a temper. so should i just stay out of his way and forget about it? because its not like he hits me everyday or anything. he has mood swings. only when hes really really mad. so not that often. and its not as bad as serious cases.
