I have been trying to find online help because I don’t know what my other options are.
my sister is 30 years old, she verbally and physically abuses the whole family, especially my parents. It has become worse and worse over the years. She hits my mom, then a second later she acts nice and we dont do anything.
we all just pretend nothing happened cause were so use to doing that.
what can i do, what are my options

Welcome to our Forum and thank you for sharing your story with us. I can hear how much you want to find a resolution and put an end to the abuse that you and your family have endured over the years. If at any point, you feel like your safety is threatened, please call 911.
I can imagine that you are really confused about how to proceed. I get the sense that you really care about your sister and would like to see her find the help she needs. It seems that you are also concerned about the rest of your family, and how your sister’s violence is impacting you and your parents. I imagine it’s really scary not knowing when your sister will erupt and hurt someone. I’m worried for your wellbeing, and I want you to know that you and your parents deserve to live a life without abuse.
It sounds like you’re open to exploring some options, and I’d like to help you find the right resources for your area. Did you have any specific options in mind? Conflict resolution, mediation, counseling are a few examples of the type of services that we can help you locate. Also, please feel free to Chat in any evening between 6:00pm-11:00pm PST. Sometimes it’s easier to work through this stuff when Chatting.
We are here for you and your family.
