  • a cry for help.

    im tired. i just got into a spat with my stepdad and mom. as always im left unheard and be littled, my mom claims she is being taken advantage of and disrespected. my stepdad said something on the lines of my dad not caring about me and me having no friends. i was told i have to prove to them i am responsible enought to live with my father when that should never be the case. It seems that because of them my intrest of school has gotten to a all time low and i was contemplating on dropping out. they dont seem too understand that i am am a teenager (15 year old male) and i make mistakes. please help, anyone. i want too live with my dad but i cant. any advice is good advice <3

    RE: a cry for help.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out, we hope to help out as best we can! It sounds like things have been pretty frustrating at home, and you are totally right; You are allowed to make mistakes and learn from them! You are in no way expected to be perfect or to have 100% motivation to do things at all times. It understandable how your environment can impact your interest and motivations in school. In regards to your question about your dad, you may need to get some info from him first. Such as, does he have guardianship over you at all or is there a type of court order that specifies what rights he has. This will help you figure out if you can live with him without having to do any legal adjustments. If you do need any kind of legal help once having this conversation with him, we can help you find some legal aid in your state who can help answer further questions on what your dad might need to have you go live with him. We hope this helps!
