A few weeks ago, I posted a thread about my friends dad, who is making her pay rent, and practically stealing money from her. (We checked, he is not claiming it in tax returns).

Two nights ago, he punched her in the face. She walked out of the house, (mind you it was about 5 degrees farenheight in Chicago suburbs) and stayed out for 5 hours until 2 AM, when she was certain he was asleep, because she was afraid to go home. She went home, slept for 4 hours, and left in the morning. She went home after school and her dad apologized, but her face was incredibly swollen, he is a big man.

She is scared, and yet she doesnt want him to go to jail because she has no where else to go, he is the only adult family member who is fit to raise a child.

she has said though if he does something else, she will call the cops.


My question is, should I call the cops and over ride what she says? It is not my life, but she seems to be close to losing it.

I need help, this is serious, and I don't want to tell any close friends because I dont want other people knowing.

if shes getting punched in the face and what not you need to do something.

edit: can you beat her dad up? cause then he wouldnt go to jail but you could teach the tard a lesson or two.

Let her live with you?

I stopped at where it says "He punched her in the face" because that's all I needed to read to come to the conclusion that this guy should be castrated.

I have been telling her to call, but then she will be stuck in a foster home or some ****, which will mess her life up more than it already is, rather than her leaving in a year and a half when she graduates high school

I'd go by her wishes - you may think you're doing her a favour but she has a differet perception (that being first person) to you. Encourage HER by all means but ler HER do it.

don't get involved unless something else happens, she's made it clear that she doesn't want him to be punished. If he does something else to her though, you'd have to think about doing something about it.
Just let her know that you're there for her for now.

Sounds like you should offer your friend to live with you and talk amongst yourselves to find the best solution. Maybe he'll change, maybe he won't. But it sounds like your friend should move out for a month or so.

It's her decision not yours , don't go over her head on this one , if her dad looses custody and there's no other relative that can claim her , she's gonna be put in a foster home.
Believe me , the **** that happens in one of those foster homes is way better than anything her dad might do to her.

It's a really tough situation you are in , the decision is up to you.

The only good advice I can give you is to give you is to find the right moment , and tell her that you are here to support her in any decision she takes.
And if she needs a place to crash in for a few nights , she can crash at your home or something.

The **** do you say? "Hey, I'm sorry I punched your lights out last night. Does it hurt? Can I get you an ice pack?"

she has said though if he does something else, she will call the cops.

Not yet. If something else does happen, and she doesn't stick to her word, then's the time. IMO.

Doesn't sound fit to raise a child to me.

+1 - he isn't fit, end of story. you don't hit a kid, regardless of how old they are and you definitely don't hit a chick.....

i'd honestly call the cops anyways the only issue is she might lie to the cops to protect him or he might get pissed off and hit her again cuz "the cops magically appeared accusing him of something he did" so thats a rough patch. if i were her i'd f#ck him up horrifically in his sleep as a reminder that she won't take sh!t.

He doesn't seem fit to raise a child IMO.

Talk to her about calling the cops.

this is not the wisest course of action

my advice is to try to offer her as much support as possible, and if he uses violence again, try to get her to call the police.

I'm sure there are hotlines you can call. Tell them about the situation and ask them what they think you should do. Since they're trained they can probably tell you what would mess her up more, abuse or foster home etc...
