I'm just wanting to get advice on what I should do/where I can get help.
I moved from NZ to Perth about 1&1/2 years ago for a "better life with my kids (single mum - abusive ex) to live with my parents. I have never had a good relationship with either of my parents but needed to get out of the situation I was in NZ. (It was their idea that we move here) So my dad is a really angry man he constantly puts me down and tells me he doesn't want me or the kids here, tells me it's all my fault that I'm a single mum and went through what I went through (this hurts cause I know it's not my fault). My mum sticks up for him constantly. And she worse the emotional abuse I get from her is crazy. She's so pathetic and childish about ALOT of things & it's her way or the highway cause I live in her house. Whenever I stick up for myself I'm out down so badly I honestly feel like a big piece of shit like I'm fully worthless and all of this is in front of my kids. A few times my daughter has caught me crying and feels like she has to comfort me of course I tell her it's fine and I'm fine I'm just upset cause those words from my parents hurt. My daughter is 6, my son 4. Since being here my dad once kicked my son into the table cause he was angry my son had a bruise/cut on his head from it and of course he remembers it and brings it up all the time, I hurt for him cause there's nothing I can do. My parents both just brushed it off and said he was in the way. I have so many constant flashbacks from my exes (kids dads) I feel like I'm stuck I don't know what to do.
Is there any help for kiwis here suffering from abuse?
I don't need a counsellor I already have one and I think it's a waste of time so please don't suggest that.
I work but only 15hrs a week (I wish I could get more, even before all the virus stuff it was only 15hrs)
