I was wondering if anyone knew of any laws, rights etc in regards to Parental Abuse. If the child is still a minor, 17, and abusive is there anything that can be done? If I kick him out do I have a leg to stand on? I guess I am tired of the verbal and physical abuse. He has been hospitalized 3 times and getting him hospitalized is a major ordeal. Three days ago at 5 am because he had been up all night and had the tv in his room on loudly I banged on his door and asked him to turn it down. He then pushed the door through and came out and head butted me. My nose is now bruised if not broken. This is the first time he has actually injured me physically. He is very controlling and after 3 years of it I don't think I can take much more of it. When does the victim in this case get peace of mind?
