  • Parents don't know how to treat me.

    I'm fifteen years old. I've had it rough all my life. When things seemed to be getting better, all the sudden it got to the worst. I can't stand my life as it is. Before, I lived with my mom whom I don't get along with very much, had my boyfriend of eight months over every day all day, went to school and did great although I recieved no academic support at home, and had food, water, clothes and a nice house. All of the sudden my mother started to yell at me for everything and then she couldn't take me anymore so she kicked me out to live with my dad in his foreclosing house which he has to be out of by the eighteenth and has no where to go. He cannot provide the things I need. He is very mean and hateful and even abusive when mad. His words cut me down and all my life i've made choices to get away from him. Now my mom makes me live with him. This is wrong of her and I want to run away. I cant go back to my mother because I do everything right and yet its always wrong and I cant stay here because my father is so mean to me and everything has been taken from me. All freedom. I go to school then sit in one bedroom with my father. We had a snow day the other day and all I wanted to do was see my boyfriend yet supposably I'm a bad kid and can't. I don't deserve to. There is so much more to my story but I just dont know what to do. It goes on forever. I want to be emancipated but I'm only 15. I turn 16 in May and would like legal help and a place to stay until my birthday so I can try to be emancipated. Maybe someone can help my find a job and somewhere to live so I can be. I love in Michigan. I dont know what to do or where to go. Please give me some advice.
