Help Deciding if I should report my parents.


So I’ve had bad depression problems since I was at least 9-10 and the biggest reason is because of my parents. I can promise you i’m not being a bratty teenager. For awhile I’ve just realized my parents have been Emotionally abusing me for 80% of my life. I’ve been to counseling 3 Times. I first went to a counselor when I was 9. Then went again when I was 11 maybe. I’m not the only one who suffers from depression from my parents, my older sister does at well. My eldest sister who has moved out knows my parents are not very good but doesn’t understand how much worse it has gotten since she moved out. My dad hot my sister once and I told the counselors but they didn’t do anything but give my parents parenting classes (which made everything even worse) They forced me into this summer thing where a bunch of young kids went because they wouldn’t listen to the parents as if I was the problem. My parents always tell me I’m never going to get far in my life. They always talk down on me. The other day I came home and asked my mom why She wasn’t answering the phone when I called and she yelled at me. Then I went to ask her something else and she told me to shut up. My mom always talks about everyone behind their backs like my sisters, anyone in the family, or simply just people around her. I can hear her when she talks about me to people all the time. Well maybe I was in the wrong but I told my sister some of the hurtful things my mom said about her. (She already knew my parents talked about her) My sister got mad and posted “I know what you say about me behind my back, one day i’ll be gone and never come back” to facebook. My mom saw it and came upstairs to tell my dad. I went downstairs to hide in my room and my dad came down stairs and yelled at me for an hour to tell me how my sister and I need to stop playing these games and I need to stop turning everyone against them. He told me he’s take my phone and shove it up my ass and what I say is fake. I can’t remember it all because I was crying and trying to ignore him. He finally left and I sat there and cried the whole night. He told the same thing to my sister, she just ignored him. I’m scared of my parents. My moms not mentally sane. She makes everything about herself. My parent never give me hugs. They haven’t my whole life. They never tell me good job or anything. They only tell how lazy I am and what a Failure I am. My dads not emotionally intact. He smokes and lies to his parents. He cheated on my mom and I know they don’t love each other. The only reason they still live in the same house because my mom doesn’t work, she can’t leave him financially. Everyone in my family knows how crazy my mom is. My sister has tried multiple suicide attempts because of them. Do you think I should contact someone?

Dear Roxy,,,I am so sorry to hear that you have to go through all of this on your own. Even though we do not know each other I just want to tell you that I am very proud of you for reaching out and seeking help. I do believe that staying in your home environment would be detrimental to your health. The best thing that you could possibly do is speak to a counselor, social welfare worker, person in law enforcement. If possible try to move out of that environment ... Go live with a family member if possible, or try to spend as much time as you can with friends. Please remember that you are never alone, and if you need a caring friend, you can speak to me and reach out to me.I wish you all the best of luck with your future. Lots of hugs , Your friend, Ariella
You should be able to answer this yourself.The fact your sisters attempt suicide should be a signal enough, I bless you on your future endeavors, and remember, this will not last forever. The things your parents say is not true, so don't believe them! They're messed up, they're addicted on bad substances, they have their own problems.Here are some links and hotlines you can use, arigatou for telling us this ♡ :
DCFS hotline (California) : (800) 540-4000
DCFS hotline (outside California) : (213) 639-4500
Quit Smoking hotline : (877) 509-3786
National Suicide hotline : 1 (800) 273-8255

You can also call 911 as well in case it gets physical.
What your parents have done to you and your sister is unacceptable in any household. You should report them immediately and without any hesitation. You two deserve a better life than that.
