I pretty much stood up to my dad this weekend. I stood up for my sister, whom he had been yelling at for hurting our mother's feelings. My sister is 37, lives next door in her own house, has three kids and a boyfriend. My parents have been really disrespectful to us all of our lives. I just came down for a visit this past weekend and got to see what had been going on first hand. I honestly felt like that I had walked right back into my childhood. I am 28 years old, and when my dad had my sister back up in a corner, I stood up for her. I'll be darned if my husband treats my daughter like that! It had me in tears after I stood up for her and he walked out of her house. How dare he! He has always treated her badly, but I had forgotten how badly. My sister and I don't have any good memories from when we were growing up with our parents. My mother is very twofaced and my dad is a bully. They are very toxic and made me believe some very wrong things growing up. After this weekend, I don't want to be involved in that anymore.

Parents are people too. There are laws against harassment.  Sometimes we need to do to tough love to our parents as well as they do it to us.  I had to get a restraining order against my parents. My brother was shocked.  He said he wouldn't have done that. I said if they pulled on you what they pulled on me brother I bet you would have done something.

You are entitled as a human being to not have a relationship with anyone that harms you, including parents.  Be strong and proud of yourself this shows you believe in you.
Much love

Parents are suppose to support and help their children, i would tell you this was true in my case, but I would be lying. My mother was toxic and and father walked out when i was 8. You are better than them, and one day they will know. I have raised one son, the other is many years younger and both are my whole life. Do I get depressed, oh yea. But when i look into the eyes of my 2 year old I can only see hope and love. I wish I could show you.
My advice to you get your sister out of there. As far away from the parents and as close to you as possible.
