That's extremely manipulative, the lying. The best things you can do is to start preparing and planning to be out of their house as soon as you can. This might mean establishing credit, planning for future education or whatever it is you need to not be dependent on them as soon as you become an adult.

The worst mistake I ever made with my abusive parents was to rely on on them, because then I was stuck, isolated and couldn't escape because they sabotaged my independence both actively and through neglect.

Again, I repeat, start preparing and planning, saving money, learning how to take care of your self emotionally and establish healthy friendships because those are what will serve you and prevent you from being trapped in another abusive situation.
