    I'm a 16 year old girl so I'm still living at home. My family and I have always been huge meat eaters and honestly I love meat and find it a struggle to imagine my diet without it. However as I'm getting older I'm starting to come to my own conclusions about things more than just following my parents "just don't think about what you're eating" attitude. Whilst on the computer the other day I found a presentation about how immoral eating meat is, followed by the most repulsive snapshot from an abbatoir. This video paired with my own feelings helped consolidate how I feel about eating meat. I really don't want to eat it any more for moral reason and also for the health benefits. My parents are against me going vegetarian as they think it's just a phase and it's too much hassle to make me separate meals and they believe this diet won't provide me with the necessary nutrients. Can anyone help me out?

  • Is it right to be mad about this?

    So I drive a car that my stepdad bought a year ago for himself. He doesn’t really use it because he works and he has his own truck for his job .

    So I drive a car that my stepdad bought a year ago for himself. He doesn’t really use it because he works and he has his own truck for his job . So my point is the only reason I’m allowed to use it is because I drive to where I work and my mom convinced him to let me use it . I only use it for a couple minutes a day and when he uses it he takes it for more than a hour . So he’s basically using up all the gas . I’m just saying, yeah sure he pays for the car insurance. The car is pretty old cause it’s from 1998 . So he paid it off. I get mad cause when I use it and use up all or half the gas I refill it and he doesn’t seem to care about wasting the gas he leaves it to almost empty. But I mean he is using his car so why have to be mad about refueling your own car . I use it to get to where I need to be and I still will refuel it to use it again. I’m just mad cause he thinks that because I work or earn money, I may have all the money in the world. I don’t know wheather I should confront him or just let it be .

    So my new boyfriend stopped letting me talk to any of my family or friends. He took my iPhone away from me and even changed the password on his phone to keep me from using it. When I asked him for my phone back he told me that he sold it. He says that he's just doing it to protect me. He's much older than I am and more experienced in relationships so I want to trust him, but I really miss my mom and my sisters. I was going to sneak out to visit them two days ago but he locked me in the bathroom and braced a chair up against the door so I couldn't leave. I haven't even been to school in like two weeks. I borrowed the neighbor's phone and called my mom to pick me up but I'm really worried about what he's going to do when I eventually go back home to him. Is this normal behavior in a new relationship?

I don't expect answers I just miss my big brother and want him back.

I’m trying to pay all of my bills, my car note and I take my mom places in my car with no gas money and give my little sister money here and there and top of this have a whole baby mother I just gave like 200 bucks a month for our daughter. Since she says I don’t do sht so I gave her money and I don’t make much only $14 bucks an hour but I feel like I have to do all of this on my own. I feel like I can’t ask anyone for anything. Like I tried asking my older brother for 5 dollars and he says he doesn’t have it. But when he didn’t have a job, there were times when I bought him things without him even asking. I do what I can but whenever I don’t have some money then People will get angry and expect me to have it. I know I’m a 23 year old adult but I’m starting to get irritated and overwhelmed.

    I know that obviously I don't *have* to let her visit, but really what I'm asking is more of a case of if it's moral to just decline her requests. Bit of backstory: I'm 25 and recently married. Husband and I are super happy. He actually cares about me. As for my parents, I was the scapegoat for many years, which gave me lots of mental distress and lowered self esteem. To this day I'm not sure if my parents love me, and I have CPTSD. My mother projected her negative qualities onto me. When I'm around my entire family I often feel like I'm not worth much (although we do have happy moments). I know that I can't blame everything on my parents as I am an adult now, so I'm doing my own therapy to learn healthy behaviors, but since I've moved away to be with my husband I've just been so much better in terms of self esteem. Now my husband and I are living in a new country, a country that my mother has wanted to visit for a long time. She says she wants to visit me to "see how I'm doing" (aka acting like she's concerned for me), but to me I feel like she just wants a free place to stay to see the country and have someone show her around. I don't know what to do. I don't want her to come, because I feel like this is a safe haven away from my toxic family, but I feel a lot of guilt now. I feel like if I push my family away then I won't have a family anymore. I'm fine going to visit them on christmas and stuff, but I just don't want them to bring their energy here. Is that bad?

  • Why did my sister marry a white man?

    I'm so angry at her. In our community, we don't date outside our race. My parents worked so hard to send her to America for an education. Then she ran off with a white man and got married.

Also why the 200.00 is being taken (pretend rent, forced savings/investment, help cover cost of other siblings, mom's personal fun fund, etc) and your age, are helpful to understand if/how much you should be bitter about this.

    Well congratulations with getting your second paycheck ever but managing to get a bonus where you can send 5K to your mom. I assume medical and/or IT related. Yes you can be annoyed and frustrated with your mom. With what you have shared. You should talk to your mom about this. At this point why does your mom even have access to your funds?

Idk why I was never like this before, but I don’t thjnk it’s a horrible thing.

  • My brother steals from us constantly. I’m underage and I can’t do anything about it. My mom enables won’t call the police. What should I do?

    Best answer: It's not unheard of for an adult child to move back home for various reasons. However, it's very rare for a parent to handle it the way your mom is. She's teaching him how to be a toddler! On the drugs, do you live in a state where weed is legal and is he over 21? If no to either of these question,... show more
    Best answer: It's not unheard of for an adult child to move back home for various reasons. However, it's very rare for a parent to handle it the way your mom is. She's teaching him how to be a toddler! On the drugs, do you live in a state where weed is legal and is he over 21? If no to either of these question, this is even worse. She's helping him commit crimes. (She's legally responsible for what happens in her home).

    When an adult child is still living at home, this isn't ideal, but a good parent will make sure she tries to instill responsibility in him. If she doesn't, he'll never be able to function on his own. This includes having a job, paying rent, responsibility for chores around the house, etc. If he steals, of course the cops need to be called. Otherwise, she's "teaching him" it's ok to do this.

    Anyway, this is what someone needs to say to her. You can try, but parents don't usually take parenting advice from their own kids! Is his dad around?

    If this doesn't work, then start working on a plan to leave home the day you turn 18. This usually involves extended family, but you've got to send a message to mom. There's no reason for you to live in a home that's run like this.

    I wouldn t say that my brother and I have ever had the best relationship but recently it has gotten a whole lot worse. I am 16 and he is 13 and honestly right now I feel scared to be the house. He is constantly verbally awful to me but today he physically attacked me and my parents were right there. He was kicking me and screaming at me and I was crying and when my parents broke us apart my mum just said "go have a shower" and my dad just stormed off to the study room. Its not fair he always gets away with this stuff. I have been sitting in my room crying for the last half hour and no one has come and he will for gods sake get way with this and I will get the blame as apparently I was provoking him. I just feel so alone right now. I love my mum and dad and 2 sisters but I just have no love for my brother at all. Is anyone else in this situation or has been? Does it get better? My brother has my parents thinking that he is a nice person by honestly after today I don t think I ever want to see him again/ vice versa. But if he were to die I reckon I would feel sad but I reckon he wouldn t care if I died.
