My parents have always been through a troubled marriage, it has affected me since I was a child. Iโ€™m in the merchant navy so for the past 2 years Iโ€™ve been at home giving my exams. Last month my father started hitting my mother when I wasnโ€™t home and she begged and cried for us to move, she has always supported me so I thought that I should too. Things got out of hand because he didnโ€™t want to talk and I unintentionally hit him when he straight away grabbed my motherโ€™s throat. I want to clarify that this isnโ€™t the first time that it came to physical harrasment on my mother and I couldnโ€™t bear it. Through a mutual discussion with a lawyer , they agreed that he will not do anything ever again. My mom, me and my younger brother (13 y/o) decided that weโ€™ll live together and my father went to my grandparents house. Since I was preparing for my exams, my mother told me to stay out of this and I did. From what I assume, she started thinking that she will not have a companion anymore and my father being the cunning man that he is, apologises and today my mom allowed him to come home. I feel helpless and broken. Especially from my mother who has stopped talking to me. She somehow believes that I was the culprit who took out his revenge on my father. Yes, I didnโ€™t like him and have been detached for a long long time. But the hitting was unintentional to which at that time, my mother was proud of, is now blaming me. I donโ€™t have a single penny to my name that I could go anywhere but she is not admitting that she provoked me to hit my own father. Iโ€™m confused as to who is more wrong? And helpless as to what me and brother should do? I really really canโ€™t afford therapy for myself and my brother. I will be back on the ship in 1-2 months time my brother will be stuck here.

You need to talk to your mother openly about this . Explain that this may leave a scar that can never heal. Tell her that you and your brother will always be there for her. And help in life till the end
