        I have a stepdad and i dont really like him. When i was about 3 years old my mom and dad split up to create a better arguement free life for me. At first my stepdad seemed like a really nice guy but ever since a couple of years ago that changed. He always calls me mean names and lets my little brother attack me and wrestle me. Which i dont want to hurt him but my mom and stepdad dont listen when i ask him to stop they just sit there saying that oh if she breaks your wrist we wont care. Now i understand that theres worst situations but i still struggle from being made fun of. I dont enjoy anything anymore. My step dad completely controls my life and i hate it.

        My stepdad is a white supremacist//racists. If u talk to him he’ll say yeah not all black or Hispanic guys are bad cuz one of my friend Jose is nice but in reality, he only says that so he doesn’t look like the bad guy. My stepdad won’t allow me to date black males. Whenever I’m going out whether for after school stuff or hanging out with my girlfriends, he accuses me going to see guys. He told his real daughter and her family that I’m going to get pregnant before I turn 21. I’m currently 17, going on to 18 in a couple months. I don’t do drugs, I don’t smoke whether I’d be cigarettes or juul, I don’t drink, heck, I don’t even cuss let alone go sleep with a boy when I’m not even allowed to date. Like why would would you go and say that to other people about your own stepdaughter?? I went to homecoming one time with a boy during my senior year and when I was little I’ve always liked one direction and Justin Bieber, he’s coming with all these accusations. No matter what I tell him, he says I’m lying. I’m thinking about moving out once I graduate, and live with my big sister. We’re really close, relationship wise and she went through the same thing so she understands. I know you might think I’m being unreasonable and not respecting or loving my stepdad the way that I should, but you don’t understand the things I go through. My sis and I go to the store after I get out of work which is around 7:30, he says why we’re going to the store so late. And once again, our reason of going to the mall so late was cuz we were ‘going to see guys’. And when I say he thinks I’m lying to him, he thinks I’m lying to him about everything! And I’m saying EVERYTHING. He told me I’m the reason why we’re poor. When he doesn’t even pay for my school things except for school tax. I have to ask my mom for lunch money and my sis buys most of my clothes. He gets social security and other money for my being but he doesn’t wanna spend any of it except going to the grocery store and buy a ton load of his food for himself and his daughter and her family. He’s not abusive or anything but he’s killing my mental and heart health with all this arguing and accusations. I go to sleep crying about why my stepdad is such a terrible person.

          Hi there,

          We’re really sorry to hear about your stepdad. Nobody deserves to be treated like that, and we understand how bad that can be for your mental health. It doesn’t sound like you’re being unreasonable at all, in fact it makes sense why you would feel that way because of what he’s saying to you.

          Once you’re a legal adult, you can legally live wherever you want (in most states, you’re a legal adult once you turn 18. In Alabama and Nebraska the age is 19, and in Mississippi the age is 21). It’s really important though that wherever you end up you’re safe and have your needs met. It sounds like you and your sister have a strong relationship, which is great! Living with her could be a great idea, so long as it’s safe, you have a good place to sleep, you have food, and all that.

          If you end up leaving but you don’t go to your sister, short- and long-term shelters can be good places to stay. There are also transitional living programs that give you a place to stay while they help you get a job and an apartment of your own. And if you plan on going to college, staying in a dorm could be a good option too. If you have any questions about your plan, or just want to talk about your situation, we’re always here to help. You can chat us at our website, or call us at 1-800-786-2929. We’re open 24/7 and are always confidential and anonymous. You can also respond on this forum, or send us an email. Good luck with everything!
