I want to help her ... - May 14th 2009, 08:19 PM

I'm having a tough time at the moment with friends problems, and exams coming up etc. And now I've got a heap of family problems coming that I don't know how to help with.
My 15 year old sister has been bullying me for a while, and has been "rebelling" against my parents using her 19 year old boyfriend to get the things she wants when they say no. It's really upsetting my mam because she calls him to get her sick for school, or to go to the doctor with him, rather than asking her own parents.
My sister went into school today and asked for them to call social services and report my parents for chlid abuse, and they did. She isn't being abused, none of us are but they "have to listen". Apparently we're being assigned a social worker now, and will be investigated ... My other sister starts at the school in September and this is going to be so hard on her because everyone will know. Plus my mam has only ever worked in childcare, and knows nothing else, this whole thing could put her out of work.
On top of that my mams sister has been told she probably has back cancer. Her sister and her kids are all of the family she has left and it's not long since we lost my grandma.
I want to help mam because this is destroying her, but I just don't know how. Please tell me how I can help her? I can't stand to see her suffer the way she is with all this.

You can't move mountains by whispering at them.

That sounds really bad, and it's awful that your sister would do something like that. Have you just tried talking to your sister? Silly question really but it could help. Just be there for your mum, she'll need you more than ever right now. And I hope things get better, she can't afford to be out of work in the middle of a recession. x
