My parents are mentally abusive and manipulative but not severely and so whenever I try to talk to my sister about it she says “it’s not that bad” and I just sit there like that doesn’t make it okay I’ve still tried to kill myself more than twelve times in the past year and have depression



there’s so many parents who don’t recognize that they are abusing their kids 

it is critical that children become aware of abuse from adults and that they recognize what abuse can look like, and that’s why I very strongly believe that schools need to start talking about parental abuse

otherwise, you get people like me who didn’t realize it was abuse until they’re 16-17 and already have PTSD
