Hi there and thank you for contacting Ask Alex 

We here at Childline would be very concerned about you speaking of your mom physically hurting you and gaslighting you.  It is your right to be safe and be protected from harm.  Your parents do not have the right to harm you in any way, physically, emotionally or sexually. It is your parents responsibility to care for  you, protect you and listen to you. 


You have a right to get help and support and to talk to someone about how you feel. You have the right to be listened to and heard about what you are experiencing. Sometimes talking about what we are going through with a trusted adult can help us to make decisions. Do you think you have a trusted adult you could speak to about what’s going on for you? This could be another family member, teacher, youth worker or neighbour.   


Remember, young people have the right to report any concerns of abuse to Social Workers or to the Gardaí. Túlsa is the Child and Family Agency in Ireland.
