So my 17 year old has been choking me and hurting me. He has been threating to hurt me example break my jaw, choke me, kill me hold a knife to me. This 17 year old is also my brother. What can i do to get him help and me because he can not get away with hurting a girl who is 2 years younger than him... Also i don't want him to do this to his girlfriend or his future wife and kids!
Unless you can convince him to go to counseling then you need to include the police because he is acting out violently. Take action now!
As far as what you can do....get him into counseling and/or anger management classes. Otherwise, you’ll have to file a police report and he will have to deal with the consequences of his behavior.
