totally confused - August 18th 2010, 11:04 PM

right now i'm living with my mom, basically. My dad comes by almost every day then goes back to his house which is fine but the thing is, my mom is completely in a rutt, my dad (no matter how "helpful") thinks that me and her are just lazy and don't do anything to save our lives nto to mention doesn't get the idea that he and my mom are divorced. I try to help my mom with stuff like how she wants to move to California. She's a total packrat and procrastinator. she's a wonderful person but needs a little help. So right now i'm torn between going to boarding school in california and staying here with my mom to see if she's going to do something that she's said she's going to do for at least four years. i would diffenently miss my family and my friends but i need some change but i'm sure it's the right way. I know it's not major but i can't think of anyone to talk to about it . . . help?

First of all... welcome to TeenHelp! =)

Feel free to PM me anytime if you'd like to talk about what's going on, Ali, whether it be about something major or minor. =) I personally think that moving away from your family is a "major" issue. I know I wasn't able to do it until I was 18... and you're only 13! That may be worth keeping in mind: you ARE only 13. You're still a young teenager, so you shouldn't have to worry about "adult" problems just yet. I know that you love your mom and want to make sure she's okay... but it sounds like this is something she needs to come to terms with on her own.

If you'd like, you could do some research, and see if your mom would be willing to talk to someone about her behavior. Maybe she needs the help of a professional organizer/packer, or there's a possibility that your mother is what psychologists call a "hoarder". Either way, at the end of the day, it's ultimately not your responsibility to make sure that your mom does what she needs to do. YOU need to do what's best for you - and a change of environment sounds like just the thing. =)
