If your father wanted your kids, do you ask what they're going to do? If your father responded "I thought I would put them in a corner and spank the sh** out of them" would that be a joke to you? Please tell me what you think (having family issues)

MY dad and mom use to beat the sh** out of my two sisters out of us and she still laughs about it. He things there was nothing wrong with what he did to us. He thinks he was a good father because he beat the sh** out of us. I hate it when he laughs about it. I think he is a mean son of a bit** and I dislike it when he brings it up. Mom use to say different neighbors called her and told her that they saw us girls doing things so they she could have a reason to beat the sh** out of us. I do hate her. She is still calling me and telling me that businesses are calling her and telling her that we my husband and I are not paying our bills. WE are not late on any of our bills and they do not know she is my mother. They would be calling me not her. Mom is in a convolsant hospital. She is making stuff up still. She loves to stir the pot and make things up to get me upset. I just tell her it is not true. She wants to come and live with me again so she is telling me the bill collecters are calling her. She told me if I let her move in with me again I can have ALL her money. She gets 576 dollars a month. It would cost me more than that in valium to cope with her. LOL Mom is a bit** and needs to stay where she is and I have told her that.

Wow, your mother sounds just like my grandmother. I lived with her for a lot of my childhood, since my parents were so messed up at that time, and she was just like that. She not only beat the crap out of me, but let her husband sexually abuse me right under her nose, and then claimed there was nothing she could do about it. She's still like that, in many ways. Even though she lives far enough away she couldn't possibly know or hear anything about me, she makes up that people told her my home was a mess, or my child was starving, or that it was somehow my husband's fault that both my child and I are having so many health problems. People always tell me I should be grateful to her because she sometimes let me live with her (other times she threw me in the street) but I say "She gets her due in that I haven't strangled her". =P

Hmmm. I guess it would depend on your own experience with your father. If he was a good father to you, then I would expect him to be a good grandfather. If not, then I wouldn't expect him to be a good grandfather. And if he said something like that, I don't think I would take the chance that it was a joke. Since my family was horribly abusive to me, I wouldn't trust any of them with my child. I've actually kind of come to like the person my father is now, but the abuse I suffered at his hands in the past is still enough to keep my child from being alone with him. The same is true for any of my other family members. I would like for them to get to meet my son (we live very far apart) but I would never let him just go visit them without me, or even leave them in the same room alone.

Are you kidding? If someone said that to me....about putting them in a corner and spanking them I would not let them anywhere near my children! Child abuse is a VERY serious issue, and is never funny in any way. If I were you I would not let your children near him.

Thank you. My husband heard about this and pushed my father out the door, and now my father is trying to get custody of my children.
