My father would lose his temper and hit us. My brother, a year younger, got it worse than me because I learned how to read dad's behavior and I would stay out of his way when I perceived him to be in a bad mood. My mother was an avoider. I take after her and avoid and withdraw too. Not pouting or sulking but brooding until the anger passes. I don't hit people the way my father did or break things.
