Today in the car my mom broke it to me that my mom and dad are getting divorced. I nooded and said I wasn't okay with it at all but I'll live with it. I want to ask my mom if I can tell my friends. If she says no I'll be completly lost. I need someone I know and trust thats my friend to confide in. I feel sometimes awkward and uncomfortable with my dad. I love him and he loves me but I don't know what to do. Please help!

 

Hey pixiehollowlover, I think you should talk to your friends about it. Your mom doesn't have to know, it can just be a convo between you and your bestie. I confide in my friends all the time, so no worries. I'm sure your mom won't find out. Hope this helps! Xoxo

*****MOD!!!!!!!!!!***********************
IDK what to do....
my parents are divorcing...i currently live with my dad but i'm not sure if i need to stay with him or go live with my mom, or which one i want to do.
My mom abused me once, and so my dad says that i shouldn't forgive her for that...but the thing is that he is a bully and abuses me almost everyday. If I stay with him, i will be living in poverty but if i go with my mom, i will be middle-class, almost upper class. but my mom works, so i'd have to be home alone or go be with my dad, who doesn't work. I'm kinda leaning towards going to live with my mom but i know it'll make my dad angry and also with my dad, i'd go to this church that has a lot of youth that i've known since i was 2 (i'm almost 13) but with my mom i'd go back to my old church which has people that are cool but not that many youth. IDK what to do, i wanna go live with my mom but my dad will get angry if i do....please help!




Hey girl, you should go where you feel happiest and safest. If you feel really uncomfy maybe you can talk to a close relative, spend time elsewhere while they settle this, because its a really stressful time for the both of them. Don't take what they say to you personally because like I said they're both really stressed, of course. But definitely if they make you feel uncomfortable, talk to someone about it!

MOD***MOD**MOD***MOD ok so i have such low self-esteem.. and all because of one person... my mom.like today my friend invited me to go shopping with her and when i came home all i said to my mom about going shopping was, " "insert store name here" had a lot of good clothes" and she got all mad and was like," why do u expect me to buy you everything, her so stupid i'm not gonna buy u everything u should b b able to buy ur own clothes"and then she started calling me a prostitude and a fat b-word and started calling me other cuss words. (which she does all the time) and i'm her only girl and child who lives w/her. and she always tells my bros wife that she's her fav daughter. and that makes me feel sooo bad and unloved... because my mom always tells me how she hates me,how ugly and fat i am, and wishes i would die. Frown so how do i deal with her.. cuz she's the only family member i have on this hemisphere. Frown plz help

 

Hey chica, I'm so sorry that you have to deal with this. I've dealt with similar sitches with my mom, so trust me when I say that I completely understand what you're going through. It's not right at all that your mom talks to you like this. And please don't believe anything that she says....you are wonderful and gorgeous and absolutely fabulous, and don't let her make you feel otherwise. Is there any possible way you could move in with your brother? Or even a friend? If not, then try to block her out when she says this mean stuff. I know it's hard, but maybe if she sees that she's not getting a reaction from you then she'll ease up. Or, you can try talking to your favorite teacher, or a guidance counselor about it, because this isn't right. Another thing? Start looking for colleges far, far away. Hang in there, it won't be like this forever...;)

I need help now

 

Hey girl,

I am so sorry you are in a difficult situation.  I understand if you don't feel like you can talk to your parents right now, but it's really important that you find another trusted adult, like a teacher or counselor, that you can talk to about what you're going through.  If you need more tips, check out this article:

That must be hard for you. I feel sorry for you. I hope your mom will stop abusing you. Like my mom ALWAYS favors my sister and brother. I'm the one left out.  Kayla C.

MOD MOD MOD PLZ HELP- (and plz delete everything below) 




Hey babe, I just read your question and I feel for you. Journaling can only help so much, and in this circumstance you need more than just a journal. You need some support.  It is VERY important to talk to your dad about it or another trusted adult as soon as possible! I know you and your mom have a great relationship, but there are definitely some issues that need to be straightened out here and it's not healthy to let this continue to happen. Stand up for yourself and be strong. You need to be honest about this, you deserve to be treated with respect. This is no way to treat a daughter or another person in general!
