  • My mom might be pregnant but i can't stand another sibling.

    Hi. I'm a 13yo kid that currently has a big problem.
    So, until the age of 6, i was an only child. I did want some siblings, but 1 or 2 years smaller. My sister was born and for some time I protected her and loved her like a brother would do.
    My parents started to favor her and prioritize her like they never did to me, I have to give her my things if she wants and my parents won't do anything to her if she hurts me, but even if I call her "stupid" they'll rush and scream to me like total beasts.
    Now, I can't stand my sister and my parents anymore, they make me feel like the ant they step on and will only buy me things to take them from me at the smallest thing I do wrong and they only satisfy my needs because they're forced to. Recently, my mom is making some references about a pregnancy, her belly seems to be bigger than before, and I am REALLY worried because i wouldn't be able to stand another one in this family. Sharing and forcefully caring for another one that will follow the same path my sister followed, my parents already pressuring me and my life being not at the best it can be, i can't just stand it and at one point i'll probably just collapse.
    If my mom really is pregnant, I have a plan to just leave and go to my grandparents', they always made me feel good but also taught me a lot of things.
    My parents probably wouldn't understand and I'll end up being depressed, which I think I'm not, i'll not assume anything before checking a specialist.
    So I need a plan to go there.

    Hey there,

    Thanks so much for reaching out and sharing a little bit about what’s been going on, we know that it takes a lot of courage. Changes in family structures can be really overwhelming and it makes a lot of sense that you'd be wary of your mom's possible pregnancy. It sounds like your mom isn’t fully understanding you when you are trying to relay your thoughts and feelings about how the change in family dynamics has been affecting you. It could be a good idea to work with a local family counselor or have a conversation mediated by a school counselor/social worker, trusted friend, or family member to help clear the air. If you'd like, you can also call us directly and we can conduct a conference call with your mom so you have a safe environment where you can express yourself.

    If you’d like to go over what’s going on in depth, or if you’d like to explore other options that you may have available to you, please don’t hesitate to call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY. You can also chat us by clicking on the “CHAT” button on top of our homepage. We’re open 24/7 and here to listen and support you in any way we can.

    Stay safe,
