Could you hit your parents if they got you to a point of anger or self defense?

My parents are smaller than me, and the mere thought of laying a hand on my parents makes me ill. So I have to say, no.

If my father ever hit me, then maybe. He never has, so I don't know, but I could never hit my mother, regardless of what she did to me.
#3
Only and only if my life was threatened. Like if my mom or dad went apeshit and attacked me with a knife or something, only then. Else even if I'd get punched I'd most likely not punch back.

My dad does sometimes do these friendly sort of punches/pushes and sometimes when I push back for fun I realize I could beat the shit out of my dad, cause I push him away easily. But that's age I guess, hes 56 and I'm 16, so whatcha expect.

Only if they ever hit me for no reason, as self-defense, other than that I have no reason to do that, I guess.

If my Dad hit me, I'd hit him back. But, he never has, and I doubt he ever will. I'd never hit my Mum though.

I voted no, because I'd never hit him just because of anger.
Wait.

If my Dad ever came at me man, I'd be all like BOOSH innit.

But seriously, if he ever came at me, I'd have no problems He's 6ft1 and I'm only 6ft.

ITT: young people thinking they can beat up their "old" parents.
For the most part older people will always be stronger. I'm 6'3 my dad is 5'11.
I wouldn't want to fight him, he has been working on rail roads for a long time. Old people are ****ing tough.
#9
Step dad...he's hit me before and stopped when I think he realized that I was at the point of being able to defend myself, like 15-17 years old was the last time. He's like 5'7 and I'm 6'2 :P If he tried again in anger, I'd defend myself now.
#10
I would never hit my mom. My dad got drunk once and hit my mom so I layed his ass out.. He apologized greatly and quit drinking and thanked me for it. Anger no but if he were to ever drink again and come at me or my mom then yeah I'd hit him again.

You should ALWAYS defend yourself, no matter who they may be. Even just restraining somebody is an act of self defense.
#12
If I ever saw my Dad hit my Mum I'd punch him right in the face as hard as I could.

But thankfully my parents are cool people, so this won't happen

I'd probably kill my father, to be honest. But that's more of a personal thing.


My mother, never.

Yeah it was just usually shock. Like "Wow, you just really did that." So I didn't even know how to react. But the last time he did it, I think I must have looked at him like I was finally going to hurt him, because he told me to stop looking at him like that.

No. They wouldn't hit me either.

my dad and i used to fight all the time. and i dont mean little faggy yelling and stuff, I mean really duking it out fighting. it was drop of the hat stuff too, like family vaction time, id not do what he said so he'd break my nose and things would just escalate. like my friends were all afraid to come over to the house cause they didnt want to get caught up in it. we would push each other down the stairs toss each other out the windows. we would just stand there beating the crap out of each other until we got tired, and then that was that for a day or 2 lol.

If my step dad hit me I'd unleash the focking fury. He'd probably kick my ass but I'd probably get lost in rage.

I'm pretty sure my real dad and my mom could both take me but I'd never even think of hitting them.

All these people voting no...The question is extremely vague. If you think for a minute, you can come up with tons of reasons to hit your parents. It doesn't say "Would you feel guilty doing it or not." It says "Would you hit them."

What if they were trying to kill you or your brother/sister? What if some psycho took them hostage and said that you had to punch them or they die? Be creative here people XD

Like most other people have said, if my dad hit me, I'd hit him back. I don't think I could hit my mum unless she actually tried to kill me.

I can't see myself being violent toward anyone, being honest. Partly because I'm soft as shite, partly because I don't like the idea of hitting someone else, when I could more easily just talk to them.

But in principle, I could never hit my parents, even if I was a violent person. Most I could see myself doing would be "restraining them" in dire circumstances as described by a few more pessamistic people, such as, them going psycho crazy and trying to kill my sister.

I slap my mother about regularly, I don't hit my dad though because he taught me how to slap my mother about and for that I'm thankfull.

Well, my father's a military man, and my mother's much smaller than me. I wouldn't be able to lay a finger on either of them, physically for my dad, emotionally for my mom.

My Dad wouldn't ever hit me so I'd never need to.
However if he did I'd probably end up hitting him, I hate fighting but when someone comes at me I don't tend to think about it and just end up hitting them before I know what happened. It wouldn't a choice really, it just seems to be the way I react when cornered.

Anger? No. I've worked for years to be able to control myself physically when angry specifically so I can't be goaded into an assault lawsuit.

Self-defense? Most likely. Here's hoping I won't have to try, but I'd be fine if they were attacking me.

I have no reason or want to.

My dad would kick my ass into nothing if I ever hit him or my mom.

I would not do that at any cost, except if that would be the last thing that I can do to defend myself. I have too much respect for my parents.

I hit dad just joking, and wrestling, messing around. If he ever hit me in a serious way, I'd have no trouble hitting him back in defense. I wouldn't hit mom back, but if she attacked I'd push her off/stop her from hitting me.
