Parents working my last nerve
Posted on: 03/28/2011
I need help! My mom and her mother are getting on my last nerve. They want me to follow their future and I'm not and that's when they get mad, always yelling and fussing about nonsense. Man I hate them. I want to be a cheerleader. I can't do that. I want to be a dancer. I can't do that. I want to walk to school and be with my friends. I can't do that. Man I can't do anything. They want me in band and I don't wanna be. They're pushing me to a limit where I'm trying to get pregnant.
Well, getting pregnant will not solve anything, so how about asking your parents to help you find a counselor? You can also talk to a doctor, teacher, or someone in a church, too, or maybe another relative? You are not alone.
