    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.

You influence him more than you realize. Force him to stop being a dipshit and get his act together. Be his Dad.

    My sister is recently engaged to a man who none of my family likes. He is loud, rude, and talks about things that are completely inappropriate for mixed company. (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

    I'm 24 and help paying rent and all of that. Well I'm a female. He goes in my room a lot. He has started walking in my room while I'm naked 3 different times and he said "I am just letting your dog in". I told him to stop opening the door. Makes me upset because I feel like I don't have any privacy. He won't let me have a lock on the door even though my mom is my legal guardian and the house is in my mom's name not his. Well so I have a sign that says "Knock before you come in" and he doesn't listen to that. He came in my room with the door open and got into something that is very extremely personal and embarrassed the crap out of me so I yanked it out of his hand and put it back under the bed. I am getting really fed up with him invading my privacy. One time he told me that if they door is open he can come in and doesn't have to ask and I told him that he does and he said that then i have to knock and ask if I can come in the living room and I told him that is different and he said it is the same. I can't do anything personal and can't even get dressed in my room because he just walks in and doesn't respect my privacy. I am still embarrassed on what he did. He makes me feel uncomfortable and I want to tell him that he can't come in my room any more and I'm afraid he will get mad though. My mom told me that I can have a lock on my door and he gets mad and says no! I am probably gonna get one.

My sister took her to the mall and gave her $40 out of her money and didn't let her spend none of it and said she can't have the money until her grades comes up. I think it's wrong and if her grades were an issue they were an issue before yesterday. Her grandma had nothing to do with her grades and those funds shouldn't have been used as discipline.

How do I get over this superior complex, and bring myself down to everybody else's level?

    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.
