I need help with my character? I'll give props!
I'm writing a story, and one of my character's father abuses her. She has two younger brothers that she takes care of and loves very much, who are not abused. I'm not sure if her mother should know or not, so I need help with that too. She's being put in a mental hospital for a few months for trying to commit suicide, so the outcome doesn't have to be something that happens quickly.
Should her mother divorce her father, and she gets to stay with her mother and brothers?
Should she be put in a foster home?
Should she live with her best friend and her parents, who lost a daughter due to childhood cancer?
Which of these do you like best? Or if you have another idea, please let me know. Thank you very much! :)
