I want to verify if this could count as child abuse.
I live with my mother and stepfather, and my mother, in the past few years, has been emotionally abusive to me. She tells me to “shut up” a lot, strictly controls where I go and what I do, doesn’t even allow me to post what I want to on my Facebook wall. And a few days ago, I was feeling stressed out and I was trying to talk to her about going to see a counselor. I told her my thoughts about my stepfather, which are they he is mean and uncompassionate. She responded by hitting me several times over the head, sending me to the room, and then later, when I confronted her about what happened in the hallway, she hit me even more, pushed me to the ground, and for a moment I believed she was going to strangle me before she got off of me. She’s told me not to tell anyone that she “slapped” me, to put it in the past, and is pretending everything is normal. Is this normal? Please help.
