Hey , I'm Sara . I live in South Africa and I'm 14 .
Okay so my mom and dad were separated for 3 years , & they got divorced in 2014 . My mom met someone in that 3 years and she started this dating this guy for 2 years he lived here in jhb she moved here with my brother and I lived with my dad in Durban , he was an alcoholic and he verbally and emotionally abused me ,so I couldn't take it anymore and I moved here last year .
Then my mom and her boyfriend got married last year and I only met him last year which was so new to me , before the wedding he moved in with us with his daughter Leah , he's other daughter lives with her mom . So it's been about four months now that they've been married and recently they have been arguing a lot and it's been real serious arguments where they swear a lot . Today he got really drunk and started swearing my mom and he throttled her . He swore his daughter and told he to go away and he called her really bad words .
I just don't know what to do.
From what I have read it looks like you go through a lot, but you seem like such a strong person for example asking me for advice, some people don't tell anyone!
First let's start with your birth dad, does your mum know he did this to you? He isn't allowed to do this and you should not have to put up with this, but I am glad you have moved but you should have had to go through that!
With your step dad, your mother should NOT be abused, that's is a CRIME and your mother probably feel defenseless, even if your mum says "he only did it one" it doesn't matter it's an abusive relationship and you should probably tell the police because no one deserves abuse!
And I am so proud of you for asking advice because that means you know it's wrong and that no one should have to put up with it! I hope things get better
