A netizen shared how her mother likes to hit her playfully and when she complains that it hurts, her mother gets angry at her.
Here is the story:
“My mother likes to hit me playfully (I’m a girl). It happens when she jokes with me or when she’s just happy or whatever but it’s been going on since I was a toddler and she just likes to playfully whack me.
I can tolerate the occasional pokes and jabs but as I grew older and taller she does things that REALLY HURT like smacking me so hard I choke or digging her nails into my back. I’ve begged her to stop but then she gets angry and I’ve tried to whack her back and she gets even angrier.
How do I stop her? Or explain to her? She thinks just because I’m younger and taller and have muscles (I gym) I should be tolerant and every time I tell her to stop she loses her temper at me first and gets angry I’m not playing along with her. She’ll throw things at my head (like sweets or bottled water) and then if I get pissed and retaliate she’ll flare-up.
I’m at my wit’s end. It’s not funny but I’m so f—–g angry at this BS.
And for those of you who may ask it’s just me and my mum, my dad’s out of the picture so there’s no one who can referee the situation.”
Editor’s note: Tell her a joke and start hitting her while laughing to show her how it feels.
