If this is happening to you and your sister I would suggest calling your local Kids Help Phone Line if you have one and/or Child Protection Services. If you don't know these numbers or are afraid, talk to a trusted adult, a teacher, your counselor, or your grandma so they can make the call for you to protect you and your sister.

Sorry I shouldn't of assumed you were both under age. If you are under age, your sister could call to protect you. Or she could call the police if your mom is assaulting her.

Well she called the police last time and they like asked if she wanted to press charges and she said no

Laws are different depending on where you live. From my understanding and doing a little research, police don't often make an arrest if the victim doesn't press charges, especially when there is no other witnesses or evidence. But things might be different where you live, they may not be able to make an arrest without the victim pressing charges.

Yes I do believe that they do not make arrest unless charges are pressed against the victim
