One of the characters in my book has an abusive father. I don't know much about abuse so it's not easy to write. Ideas please.?
there are many types of abuse
i personally had an abusive father. if you want to know what its like there are tons of places where you can reasearch it. also any book dealing with things as that should have trigger warnings and hopefully a help hotline
from personal experience and experiences of people i know i can try to tough on this.
physical: imagine everytime someone raises their hand you flinch in fear because youre used to expect a blow to the face or body. its a lot of hiding and sneaking around when it comes to why you were late or absent from school. how you got those bruises. a lot of makeup use and clothes you can hide in. its a lot of begging and pleading and living with a fear you didnt even know was possible. it hurts you emotionally because its your parent. theyre much stronger. you feel hated. my father was an alcoholic so it was bottles kicked and thrown. pushing, hair pulling, the smell of alcohol, punches, smacks, being hurt with objects. some people have their children kneel on grits.
emotional: anything to belittle the person. insults. accusations. pure neglect.
this is a very dark topic and i suggest you research it so you know more. and about the signs
