 Hi there and welcome to Ask Alex. 

Thanks for reaching out with your question, we understand it can be difficult to reach out to talk about what’s going on for you. 

You said that you were making noodles, when your dad accused you of dropping something, then you ended up throwing a spoon at him and then he kicked you, is that right? 

It sounds like you’ve had a really difficult experience.  The first thing we want you to know is that no one is allowed to physically or emotionally hurt you, including hitting, kicking, blaming you like that, etc.  You have the right to feel safe and happy, especially in your own home.  If you ever feel in immediate danger, you can call the gardai on 112 or 999, their job is to make sure you are safe from harm. 

It’s important to remember that you’re not alone in this.  There are people and organisations who care about you, and who want you to feel safe.  One of these organisations is Tusla, their jobs are to keep all young people safe from harm and make sure they are happy and healthy in their environments.  You can get details of your local social workers here 

We also feel that you should speak to an adult you trust.  We understand that this may sound a difficult thing to do, but sharing what’s going on for you to someone you trust will help you through this difficult time.  This could be a family member, youth worker or coach.
