First off, I'm very sorry you are having to go through this. I would personally say that's abusive behavior. He is inflicting harm on you and that's not ok. Its hard for me to answer this, because by the way you sound, I believe you love your dad. But he should not be treating you or your mother this way. If alcohol is the factor, then he needs to get help. How does he feel after he sobers up? Does he realize how much this hurts you? This is obviously going on too long. This may be wrong to say, but one day he could push it too far. He has threatened to snap your neck before. What happens if one day he does? I'm sorry to say it that way. I'm not trying to hurt you more but that could very well happen, and I don't believe anyone would want that to happen. I don't believe your father does either. When he's sober, sit down and talk to him about it. If that doesn't work, when he does get back into that mindset, call the police. Hard as heck, I could imagine, but that could be one thing to turn him around. I hope everything will be ok for you and your mother. I could not imagine putting my child through that situation or even being that kind of parent. Please keep your head up. Good luck
