How would you cope or tolerate an abusive father who abuses almost every time and you live in same house with?
Personal experience with a stepfather.
Leave the house.
How would you cope with a dysfunctional or abusive father?
First off, "dysfunctional" is hugely different than abusive.
How is the father dysfunctional?
What type of abuse are you talking about?
personal experience, took the abuse and bazar behavior until I was Old enough to leave, never went back. he still does not understand it!
There are so many variables in play, it is hard to give a single answer that would universally apply. Physical abuse should be reported to a school counselor or to child protective services. Verbal abuse should probably also be discussed with a counselor, but that is a little more subjective.
Other factors to consider - if you leave, do you leave behind younger siblings or even your Mom who would then bear the brunt of the abuse? I am not at all suggesting that you should stay in order to protect them. Just realize that the greater the threat to you or other members of your household, the more you should think about talking to a counselor. He or she can lay out your options and help you decide on a course of action.
Sometimes abusive behavior escalates over time.
As horrible as it may sounds you might get used to it. Or be too scared to leave.
by not succumbing to the example being set. or losing sight of the father whose grace is fallen. in being the better man a son sometimes raises a dad.
Remove the bad things from your life. Most people never move on and don't really realize how much better their lives can be.
Depends on your range of options and his power over you financially or what not. If he is not violent - I would abuse him back, tit for tat every time. Something will have to change, but you have to be prepared consequence of it.
