Everyday I wake up to the sound of my dad either arguing with me or my younger brother, my mum is in denial about standing up for herself.
When my Dad goes outside I scurry down to my mother and fathers bedroom to check on my mum and brother - they're normally happy. I always make jokes with father but according to my Mum he doesn't find what I say funny, he just yells or ignores me. I try and make him happy even though what I do is wrong.
My parents are quite wealthy even though my Mum is a stay at home Mum, but my Dad is a very hard worker and I think it gets to his head and stresses him out. I am very smart and I am only twelve and in year eight. I get high marks and my parents are both very proud of me.
I fight with my Mum over things caused by my Dad and I am sick of him belittling me - I said to him once I hate him and I felt so bad but I am only little so how do I stand up for myself? I put up with it and maybe one day it will change. Besides the fact he calls me a bitch and a liar I can see a good side and he was abused as a child so maybe that's where his temper comes from. I will put up with it because there is a heart of gold some where .
