I’m writing my first story, and one of the chapters contains one of the characters going through parental abuse.
So, essentially the character is 17 years old and got beat up by his father. In the scene, he is lying down in the living room with blood on his clothes and a bruise on his face.
Is this not allowed?
The father is supposed to be a bad person. The MC is trying to rescue this boy who is borderline unconscious on the floor, so the MC is trying to prevent the father from approaching the boy.
Is this too much violence? The father also pushes MC.
Do I need to edit this story and have some other character be evil? Not the father, but maybe an uncle? That’s not parental abuse, right?
