  • Not sure what to do

    So my parents split up two years ago because my dad found out my mom was cheating on him. He says that I can go live with my mom if I want to because he's not sure he can really provide for me and my brother anymore, and he might be divorcing my stepmom. I usually go to my mom's on the weekends but the problem is that her boyfriend, the same one that she cheated on my dad with, lives there, and I'm extremely uncomfortable about that. I don't want to be like a burden to my dad, and I go to a charter school that is way nicer than any public school I've ever been to, but as I said I'm really uncomfortable about my mom's boyfriend living with her.

    Thank you so much for reaching out to talk to us. We’re sorry to hear you’re going through all of this – it sounds really stressful and difficult. It sounds like your father wants what is best for you, and you deserve to live in a situation where you feel as comfortable as possible. Have you tried talking to your father a little more about what he thinks might happen if you choose to stay with him? Do you have any other relatives in the area who you might feel more comfortable staying with? If you are comfortable with it, we also have an interactive online chat as well as a 24/7 hotline where you can talk more in depth about a potential plan. We hope that one of these options might work for you because we would love to talk to you more about what you’re going through. You’re so brave for reaching out and talking about what’s going on and we really wish you all the best of luck.
