Welcome to Ask Alex, thank you for getting in touch.
We’re really sorry to hear that you’re going through such a difficult and painful situation. It must be distressing to be going through this kind of behaviour from your parents, who are supposed to be supportive. Please know that you’re not alone, and there are people and organisations that want to help you.
It’s important to remember that everyone deserves to be treated with kindness and respect. Life can be very difficult when there is tension at home, a place where you should be feeling safe. It’s a brave step to reach out for help. 
We are wondering if you are still at school and your parents are looking for you to get a part-time job, or whether you are finished school? Have you considered looking for employment as part of your plan for the future?
