I am being constantly and daily abused and belittled and bullied verbally by my 16 year old who constantly blames me for everything that goes wrong. He is bigger than me and has started to but holes in walls and doors. Snatches my phone off me and takes my car keys so I cannot escape. Bullies my 14 year old who is now starting to treat me the same way. I have tried to see the police but they have said there is not much they can do as he is my son and not my partner or they could have arrested him. I have tried everywhere for help. DV connect who have said same thing as police. Family councelling with Relationships Australia where the councillor told me it was my fault as I subjected him to violence when he was with his Dad when he was young. As is I had any control over it. We have been to Act for Kids and counselling for months but he just played their game and now after months of finishing it is now worse. Tonight was the last straw and I cannot do it anymore. I want to move out and leave my kids behind. I have tried child safety but if I hand over the kids I lose any contact with my Grandchild. I am so sick of the abuse and bullying. Is has only gotten worse since this year. I don't want to be in my house and I don't want to be around them but I have no choice as I am the parent. I dug my grave and raised them this way bit am now getting health issues from the stress. I do not know what to do except try and get through every day as an empty shell and hope I can eventually sleep and pray the next day will be a little better. Does anyone have some advice that might be able to get me through the next couple of years until at least one of them leaves home ?
