My father is quite abusive towards me. He uses belts and clotheshangers to beat me, sometimes on the hand, sometimes on the head, sometimes in other places. This is every day Many times I've gone to school with huge red lines on my hands, and friends ask what happened, but I'm too embarrassed to say. He also threatens telling my teachers I'm a delinquent who beats up many people. I don't want that of course, I'm someone who is quite studies-oriented and I want to do well, I want to go to university. My mum, she's somewhat complicit in these beatings, she never does anything and she's often mean to me, but she doesn't beat me.
