    i’m 17. I have anxiety and suffer from depression and have extreme social anxiety. My brother is 21, when he was 16 he used to have 3000 $ boat, a jet ski, my parents would allow him to travel with his friends, my parents would give him a monthly budget of 500$, he had an atv, he had a laptop, he had the best clothing out there, the best brands, the best watches like tag heuer, and the best shoes you can ever find. I am 17, My parents literally dont allow me to do anything he used to do when he was younger than me! I have better grades, However my parents give me a 250$ Budget monthly, i wear the worst clothes ( literally wearing the same jeans everyday for a week ) and i have my ******* 20$ shoe where im wearing it everyday for almost a year. This makes my friends make fun of me and i am extremley depressed about this situation because it is unfair. I was actually more mature than him. Why is this happening and how can i talk to my parents about this situation? ( My parents literally wont allow me to have a tv in my room ) and yeah ill tell you why, because they say “Your brother didnt have a tv in his room when he was your age” i mean come on. All of these ******* things he had and you wont allow me to have a single thing he had, HE WAS EVEN YOUNGER THAN ME.

    I’m using yahoo answers because I hate talking to my friends about my situation. I’m a 17 year old girl, I have two brothers 18 and 16. My mom passed away long time ago, when we were little kids. Now the problem is that dad is still affected by her death. He’s doesn’t show his depression when he’s around us but I can see him sometimes crying in the room looking at her pictures, he visits her grave and gets her flowers every day, he talks to her picture and it’s creeping me out. I know I shouldn’t be saying that and I really wish I can meet my mom but she’s no longer alive, I love my dad a lot and seeing him sad makes me feel very bad. I don’t want to lose him because he is my everything. I don’t know what to do to make him forget her or at least not think about her because it is affecting his health! Help please

  • Should I kick my son out of the house?

    Best answer: Consider what you taught him with your actions towards women yourself, making sure you're justified to be upset with this behavior. Also, consider offering forgiveness, but setting new limits such as mandatory job/career/success track. Consider why you're allowing him to be a p. o. s. under your roof. You... show more
    Best answer: Consider what you taught him with your actions towards women yourself, making sure you're justified to be upset with this behavior. Also, consider offering forgiveness, but setting new limits such as mandatory job/career/success track. Consider why you're allowing him to be a p. o. s. under your roof. You influence him more than you realize. Force him to stop being a dipshit and get his act together. Be his Dad.

(Eg: Talking about his brothers girlfriends "orifices".) He treats my 7 year old terrible, even calling him stupid at one point. Him and I have gotten in to spats before but I try to avoid him. My parents and sister all see that there is a problem but none are willing to stand up to him. My sister is coming for Christmas this year and her fiance is coming with. Would it be rude of me to not attend to avoid confrontation with him? My mom is constantly saying I'd better get used to it because he is here to stay. I think i shouldn't have to have him in my life if I don't want to.

    So I've been living away from home as an adult for a few years now. But it is nearly Christmas and naturally my mother expects me to come visit over Christmas. I'd be a terrible person if I left her alone at christmas right? Well by seeing her every Christmas my dad is alone every Christmas and I love my dad and he has always done everything for me, but he always accepts everything and as such I end up spending every Christmas with my mother because ultimately I fear her. But whenever I am with her it is never enough. She never asks anything about me but just moans about her life not letting me get a word in edge ways. It is always trying to make me guilty for not seeing her enough. I get that she is lonely. But ultimately she doesnt like me, she cannot. She only wants me because I fear her and will do as she says. She shows no interest in me, knows nothing about me, never asks me a single question and has always talked over me whenever I have tried to tell her anything. She simply drives all energy out of me, makes me just feel like a useless human and makes me want to give up on life completely. I just cannot stand being around her. She always will say she's my mother, that I should do everything for her because of that. But even in my memories as a kid i would try get her attention but she's just be emailing people. All my childhood good memories are with my dad, or friends. Yet I feel i just have to go to her for the full Christmas period leaving my dad alone

    My mother in law gave her home to my stepson, wife and kids, and moved his mother (My husband's EX) into the guesthouse. With all the contents!!!!! Our kids know their grandmother's house as the fun house because of the pool and grounds and a toy room where they play, now my stepson and his kids are getting it all. My kids go there twice a month every month for BBQ and a swim. But now we can't go, because my husband, ex and his son and wife live there. My mother in law didn't want to sell it to someone out of the family and decided it was best to give to my stepson since he was paying for house & property repairs..... That's what my husband says anyways. I think we should have a share in this home and it's contents, is there any legal way we can get a percentage of this home and some of it's valuables?

    my boyfriend of one year is 16, he moved to a really bad part of town a few months ago and has a really bad friend group. his dad has been doing drugs his whole life and now is getting my boyfriend into them as well. his dad is buying them every night and does them with my boyfriend. they try something different every night. first it was weed and alcohol and then ecstasy, molly, acid and shrooms. his dad does cocaine in front of him as well. my boyfriend doesn’t see anything wrong with doing the drugs for fun. but when he does them with his dad and all his friends he’s a total different person. his mom won’t take custody and he won’t leave his dad. he is now dealing drugs as well and has gotten hurt a few times and still won’t realize what he’s doing is wrong. if i try to get him away from that house and from his dad he gets mad. he was never like that before he moved to this town. now he’s never without his friends and never not high or on some kind of drugs. idk what to do because he won’t realize what he’s doing but it’s hurting him and our relationship and i’m scared. please give me suggestions.

    My sister-in-law has been having money problems so we gladly invited her to stay with us until she became financially stable. She's been staying in our guest room and has a part time job but complains that she's still isn't making enough yet she party's every weekend with her friends. My husband refuses to charge her rent or ask her for any money for anything because we don't have any children and both have pretty good paying jobs. I love my sister-in-law and have known her for a very long time. I trusted her to come into my home. Lately, I've been noticing money missing from my purse that I know for a fact my husband wouldn't touch without telling me. And the other day he asked me if I had taken money out of his wallet. I told him no and he said that if I had needed money I should have just asked him. It made me upset that he didn't believe me. I feel that things have been very tense between my husband and I. We never had this problem before my sister-in-law moved in. I just feel like she's taking advantage of us. I feel too embarrassed to say anything and I don't want her to feel uncomfortable. I just don't know what to do. Again, we are the only family she has so I don't know what would happen to her if she were to move out. Should I even say anything at all? Should I say something to my husband?

    My 12 year old daughter is being physically bullied by a girl who comes from a very abusive family (now in foster care). The school suspended a few kids once, but they're not afraid to keep doing it. My daughter ignores all cruel comments, and tries to stay out of their way. I think she's pretty good at that - but at this point, they've done things that went too far. Schools can be filled with children with all sorts of behavioural issues. I'm deciding to start homeschooling my girl instead. However, I'm a bit concerned that she will lack peer interactions. There's always camping, sports, and activities though. She's made some close friends although they're usually younger or older than her. We decided it might be best for our child to homeschool for a few years to gain that experience, focus more on academics, and be in a safe environment.

My parents and grandparents said I was the most beautiful child in he family, I wouldn't dare let them down, and be caught talking to someone who would make me look bad. The older I get, the better I am. Right now, I know that I am better than most people, including my mom and dad, my sister, brothers, friends, coworkers, and all of you. How do I get over this superior complex, and bring myself down to everybody else's level?
