My dad gets very angry at times for no apparent reason. When he gets home from work he always has the tendancy to yell at us over the simplest things, but when he gets really angry he either hits us or shouts out swear words, I remember one time in which my sister accidentally spilled water on our kitchen table that my dad shouted at her so loud that our next door neighbour could hear it. when my dad and I have a conversation it most likely turns into an argument. I am also noticing similar traits with my siblings, they are becoming more violent as they grow.
My mom on the other hand is the complete opposite, we always seem to favor her side rather than my fathers. When my dad gets angry my mom tries to calm him down but usually makes it worse.
i feel as though that i should fight back next time he attempts to hit one of us.......
WHAT SHOULD I DO?!?!?!
