13 years old is a difficult time for the 13 year old and the parents. At 13 teens try to be independent and do as they wish, but they are far from wise enough to make their own decisions in life so the parents will try their best to keep you from making mistakes or getting into trouble. In other...

You can't. That is the job of your parents so go to your parents. If that doesn't work stay as far away from her as you can until she grows up enough to act right.
For a divorce? I'd say as soon as you've determined that he isn't going to change, which is pretty much right away. For criminal charges? Call the police, not an attorney.
my brother is the same way the best thing to do is to just ignore him and do bad things behind his back like spit on his freshly cleaned clothes or fill his shoes with chalk or sugar or any thing to that effect
The abuser of the victim will first alienate the victim from their family and friends and can even move to another town in some cases. An abuser is sly as a fox and at first often can win over not only the victim with kindness and generosity, but also win over family and friends. However, there are...

When someone lacks money..it's all they can think about. A man is "supposedly" the provider for his family..now, when he's not providing, he feels helpless and he begins to feel stressed. Most of the time, this leads to men abusing girlfriends, wives, even their own kids. Why? Because in these...

If your sister is not a minor then there is nothing any of you can do if she chooses to befriend your ex husband. However, the family should gather together and have a talk with your sister letting her know in no uncertain terms that she is no longer a minor and can do as she pleases, but she is...
The best thing for you to do is get away from him until you have the baby or send him to stay with someone else and it will be a hard choice, but you should think about the baby inside you. Keeping your son in the same house is not a good idea. Think about the safety of your baby and yourself. If...
In most healthy situations when we are children, we are taught, good touch, bad touch. This definitely falls under that category.

Most likely, what you did was not a little thing. If it was a little thing, you have most likely done it numerous times, enough to enrage him. If talking to him does not work (i.e. violence erupts), talk to another family member or a local counselor._________________________________________________...
I was sexually molested at a very young age by my brother. After years of burying it, realizing it, denying it, and analyzing it, I finally came to peace with it. I know that sounds trite. But I cannot change the past. I can choose to hate my brother, which would take more hatred and anger than I...

The law states 'a person is innocent until proven guilty' so unless you can prove they are guilty of an act then there is nothing you can do.

While maybe, because shes putting him that way and he wants to keep her with him. By saying those rude comments and going mushy to her, all I can say is stay strong!
