mod mod mod mod mod So I'm 16 and my (awful) aunt and cousin have been living with me since Hurricane Sandy happened.They literally don't pay my parents anything and they make my parents buy them dinner etc...So my mom is a teachers assistant and she doesn't get payed in the summer. She was going to get a part time job but didn't because my aunt said that she would pay my mom to babysit my cousin while shes at work. My aunt hasn't payed my mom once and my mom has less than $200 in her bank account. She tried nicely asking my aunt to pay her and my aunt got mad at her. My mom cries every night saying how shes scared that shes gonna run out of money. I want to help my mom. I tried applying for jobs but didn't get any and I don't know what to do. I really want to be able to give my mom money but I don't know what to do.
That’s great that you
want to help your mom, but it sounds like this is something she and your aunt
need to work out on their own. I’m sure it was devastating for your aunt and
cousin to lose their home and all of their possessions after the storm, and it’s
great that you and your mom can help them out. Maybe you could offer to babysit
your cousin so your aunt will have time to do her own financial work, or you
could babysit other kids in your neighborhood to make a little money. Ultimately,
though, it’s between your mom and aunt, so I would just help them around the
house any way you can so that this will be easier on both of them!

So my uncle and his family are coming over and staying at my house for a few days. But last time they were here my couzin who slept in my room was very rude to me. Shes family though and i dont want to be rude back. I already told my mom not to put her in my room because she is rude to me. But what if she takes it offensive and continues to be rude and mean? HELP!
A fresh start to this family visit is definitely in order. Your cousin might be a little bit older now (or more experienced with sleep over etiquette), so give her the benefit of the doubt. Letting your mom know when something's going wrong between you two is a good idea so that she can mediate the situation. Do your best to make sure your cousin is comfortable at your house and hopefully everything will go better this time. Spending time with the whole family (rather than just you two hanging out in your room) will make the visit more enjoyable.

I love talking to my mom but thee are just some things at times I cant talk about with her. And there are other times when I feel I can.

Those are so sweet! I'm totally gonna try most of them, but my mom is better at Facebook than I am (yikes). Thanks, I loved the article <3
