My mother. - April 7th 2009, 08:49 PM

I love all of my family.
Except my mom.
Well, I love her. I really do.
But I can't stand her.
Mainly, because she hates me.
She doesn't even treat me like a person.
I'm not supposed to have a life; I'm supposed to watch her baby.
He calls me momma.
I love him, but I'm 15.
And he's not my responsibilty.
I really want to leave.
I've thought about running away.
But I can't. :/
Ugh. This was really kind of a rant.

Hey Tiffani. =]

I'm sorry things are so tough for you. It's not easy feeling like you're not loved, especially by someone like your mother. But I'm sure she must love you! She thinks highly enough of you to let you take care of her son, but sometimes parents just make bad mistakes.

It is not your responsibility to be looking after the baby. If anything happened, the blame would be put on you, which isn't right since you are so young yourself.

You need to have a serious chat with your mother. Perhaps she's finding the strain of the baby a little too much to handle? Offer to help her out, but not to mind the baby all the time. It's too much pressure to put on you, you're too young to have that responsibility.

Handle it maturely though. If you act like an adult, she'll be more likely to treat you like an adult.

Good luck and take care.

Hi Tiffani,

That isn't right that your mother is putting the responsibility of looking after the baby on you. She should be the main care giver to her child- not her own daughter. That isn't fair for you or the baby. You have a life too, and the baby should grow up having some quality time with his mother.

Nicola really got this spot on. You should have a good long chat about this with your mom. It would also help if you do this when she is in a calm mood. It can help talking to parents when they are not stressed out.

If your mom is having trouble taking care of the child on her own, tell her that you don't mind watching him for a set number of hours per week, but the rest of the time he is her responsibility. Suggesting that she put him in daycare may be a good idea too.


The great artists of our time are the ones who created something timeless. But it was never them defining it that way.
Everyone has a story. What's yours?
