How do I express my emotions to my tyrant dad?

How do I express my emotions to my tyrant dad?

Tyrant dad?: Dr. Friedlander has given you some reasonable advice here. Some parents (mothers too) are truly tyrants, and will beat kids for disagreeing with them.

Rather than struggle to control your emotions, why not talk to your family? Friends? Church? Go see your family doctor. S/he can offer your options including medication if you desire.

So the outcome (including possible emotional numbness is our own result, apart from the event. Best to understand and process one's own responses to such things, because we'll remain victims otherwise. Healing is truly possible. ...Read more
