  • My Mom Can't Stand Me

    We moved to a new apartment and ever since, my mom seems to not be able to stand me. She's constantly talking about how awful of a child I am for not helping out around the house. The thing is, it's not like I'm just sitting around and not doing anything. I get home from practice and then do homework. Once I'm done with that, I study for exams like right now, the SAT and ACT. So pretty much my day consists of school, practice, school work, and additional learning. I have no time to do anything. The only break I get is when I watch TV while eating dinner. My mom claims to understand this but constantly yells at me for not doing anything. Just now she said, "I just want to run away from here." And it got me thinking, if she can't stand to be around me so much and she doesn't want to take care of me, why don't I just run away? This isn't the only problem. She tells me she's not my mom and to think of her a a a friend but whenever I try to talk to her, she either goes off into her own stories, doesn't listen, or yells at me instead. For example, I told her that I forgot my wallet at home when I was trying to get gas on the way home and she started calling me irresponsible and stupid. I've head the car for over 6 months and this is the only mistake I've made. I haven't gotten pulled over, crashed it, ran out of gas, driven without my liscence, etc. and this one mistake happens and she yelled at me for it. And every ten minutes, from my room, I can hear her day something negative about having me here.
