What can a 12-year-old do when their father is emotionally and verbally abusive?
You should talk to an adult in your family such as grandparents or an aunt. If your relatives don't live close then you can talk to your school counselor or a priest or pastor. You can also go to Child Welfare on your own and put in a complaint. It will be investigated and depending on the findings you could become a ward of the court and put into foster care. Good luck! * Unfortunately, social services in the US does not consider verbal and emotional abuse a legal issue. State agencies that handle such matters would suggest family counseling but would take no further action unless the child or children had been neglected, physically abused. Because all such agencies private and public are understaffed and underfunded their resources are extremely limited in what action can be taken when the issue is not one of physical abuse or child endangement. If a child believes themselves or other family members to be in danger of immediate physical harm they should call 911 for assistance. It is the moral duty of everyone to report abuse of children, physically or mentally disabled, elderly or indeed any person who is incapable of helping themselves.

Why would anyone leave a child with someone who is verbally abusive? No. Your son should not see you being spoken to disrespectfully by a close family member as it will affect his attitudes as he grows up. You don't need the upset of it either.

Can a 16-year old in Indiana live in a foster home if her father is verbally abusive and threatening?
It is true sometimes, this father behavior causes men to follow in their father's footsteps but most of the time this is not the case.

If someone is becoming abusive they need to get help, then they can stop it.
It's not up to you to stop your father from abusing you physically and emotionally. His abusive behaviour is not about you; it is not a reflection of your character.

Let the courts and the healthcare system deal with your father. It's not your…

Should a child blow off his verbally abusive father and teach him a lesson if his father grounded him as a result of his own temper tantrum?
absoloutely not.. as a 'child' you are the student and you dont teach the teacher a lesson.. what i would suggest is that you take the punishment and ask the father if he is willing to sit down with the child and discuss the problem.. ensure that you always use tact when talking this will give the father the feeling that he is still in control, yet you still get your point across.

My own father was cruel to everyone by acting selfish, and I've had only 1 serious relationship as a result of it - the guy I dated was a total you-know-what!

You would think his home was peaceful but it wasn't it was the complete opposite. His father was abusive and his mother was verbally abusive. Be thankful for what you have. Thank the Lord Jesus if you…
