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 burnin' question? Need some love directions? Thinkin' 'bout stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losin' old friends, bullyin' or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to .

    Dear  Dish-It I want to Impress my Boy Friend by wearing a sleeveless top but the school has a stupid dress code that says: tanks must be 3 fingers wide, No Sleeveless tops!!!, Your skirts must be as long as your finger tips!!! If I don't follow all these rules then i will be suspended from school or sent home to get new clothes. What Should I Do?  ~SchoolDressCodeDisFollower~
