Angry I want a job...but SHE wont let me! - August 2nd 2009, 03:29 AM

Okay so i askedd my mom before about a jobb this year since im soon turning 16 at first shes like okay whatever...but my mom hass lately become a "worrier". Now shes like no becuz all this tht is happeninn and whatever...im like what?! Im like so angry at her becuz she is always complaining how i like to spend HER money and blah blah like i can really get a job, if i couldd i would. I dont get an allowance, if was getting one i would do a better job around here but i just do what im told and if i ask for something i usually get it. If i asked about allowance i get a frigginn lecture about why should i need one when i do nothing around here...i do enough! Okay im in the band i said after marching band/football season i was gone get a job so i wouldnt loose sleep and cut off my studying time at home and i can have my weekends so i can work longer for more...it was all gon work out fineee. But whats her problem? Places get robbed. Duh what place hasnt? But i sware if she continue to btch [ excuse my words please ] and complain and nagg about me wasting her money imma give her a reason to LET me get a job. Shouldnt she be happy im tryna work for my money instead of her giving it all the time? She complains she never have nothing for herself...she has to buy for me constantly. Im sorry for not being grown enough to work for money gosh! I want to pay my own fone bill to get what i want on my planz and pay for my internet and clothes and maybe give her moneyy..
Please give advice on what i should do!

All it seems is that your mother cares for you and is very worried for your well-being. Perhaps you can find a place close to home and a place that's fairly secure (gas stations and convenience stores wouldn't be good options). You can also try to find a job at a place where your friends may work. She probably wants to keep your close to her and have you as her baby, and isn't ready to have you go off into the cruel world at only 15-years old. Your safety appears to matter to her more than her buying for you.

During the school year it can cause lots of stress so ideally get a job that's not too demanding or get a part-time job.

You could try to show her that you are more mature by doing more things around the house, being more responsible, taking care of more adult things, etc... .

Although if you want a quick buck, you could ask your neighbours if you could mow their lawn, clean their pool out, etc... . You could also try baby-sitting. Depending on your relation with them, you'll get more money. It won't give a large pile of money but it's something. You can also use the argument that it's very close to home, neighbourhood is safe, presumably you have a phone, etc... .
