Dear Dish-It, My Mom Doesn't Listen to Me

Dish-It serves up advice for teens and kids living in abusive homes and dealing with parental abuse.
Advice About Abusive Parents

Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl after I've thought about this some more".

Dear Dish-It,

My mom is the worst! She pays more attention to my big sis (she's 19) and never any attention to me! She doesn't care if I'm sick, or what grades I get or anything! And whenever I talk to her about this, she just starts yelling and hitting me! Even my dad is scared of her! I wanted to use the kid's help phone, but my mom has a recording device on the telephone! Help me out here...

Dear mumeiz122,

I'm sorry to hear that things at home are so bad. It's really hard when the one place you're supposed to feel the safest is the place you want to be away from the most. If you're serious about wanting to get help though, there are ways. For instance, have you ever tried talking to your sis about your situation? Maybe if she were to talk to your mom about how you're feeling, it would sink in more. Also, while you may not feel safe calling up a Kid's Help Line from your house, you can always try dialing them up from a payphone or getting in contact with them online. Your mom never has to know about it. An even better idea would be to make an appointment with your school counselor. If your mom is being abusive, and your dad isn't helping you out, you need to turn to someone who will put your best interests first. It isn't healthy to be constantly living in fear of how your mom is going to react to you being around - so take the first step to change things by talking to someone about your probs, ASAP!

So, ya gotta burning question? Need some love directions? Thinking 'bout stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losing old friends, bullying or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to Dish-It here. But 'member, if ya hang out in Chat with other Kidzworld members who know ya by your 'username', ya might wanna use a secret nickname when ya write in. That way no one'll ever know it's you. And, just in case ya don't know, Dish-It gets a lotta letters everyday, and she can't answer 'em all. So keep checking the column because she's probably answering something very similar to your question while you're out doing something else. K? And Thanks! Ya keep her outta trouble. Oh! And if ya've got words of wisdom you wanna share,We'll dish 'em up, too.

I wouldn't worry about getting "in the middle of their relationship". If he makes a pass at someone else (you?) then that's HIS problem, not yours... and he probably wasn't worth your friends' time in the first place. Sorry, but you can't fix other people's stupid. And if it's you who's chasing, remember: friends are more important than some stupid/angsty short-term fling. Trust me-- I lost a few friends that way, and those relationships doesn't last very long afterwards. #TeenageWisdom

I rather you tell them the truth.....It's better to get help during times like this.. But if you wanna go down THAT road. (which includes lying, deep guilt, and possibly more scars...just a warning.) Here's how. 1. Hide them, wear bracelets long sleeves, whatever. just do it. 2. LIE. say you cut your self from glass of a REALLY bad paper cut...anything. 3. STOP!. Don't cut, easiest thing to do. At least let the scars fade... Like I said, I don't really want to help you with this stuff. TALK to someone. I cannot stress this enough. Good Luck....
