i need some advice. at home my life is very unfun and crazy, i have mainly in my opinion become the second parents because both my parents work and it seems like they dont want to be with the family. i make dinner, clean up the house, get my sisters ready for bed, etc., and a whole bunch of other chores that i dont even get paid for and they have the money they just choose not to pay me. i also watch both my sisters after school for about 2 hours until my parents get home. i feel very unloved, unappreciated, and that nobody cares for me except friends and majority of my family except me parents. i have also been very lonely lately because i moved back to my old town and i left some really good friends and some really BAD friends that i am still hurting after what they did to me. all the talks we ever have end in fights and i feel unheard. i am always in my room because i dont feel like being with my family a lot of times. they say they love me and appreciate me but then the next day they act like they never said it and they say it very seldom. WHAT SHOULD I DO?? I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE!!!!! :'( #any advice will help#
You didn't say how old you are. That would help in determining what you should do.
I understand how you feel.. I went through that at one point in my life as well.
It's always nice to help your parents and do chores around the house but there becomes a limit. In my opinion, I think you should continue to help them with things that YOU personally think should be helped with, and talk to them about how you feel about your position around the house. Explain to them nicely though, because you dont want to start any conflicts or fights. Tell them you understand they are very busy with work and all, but you are very busy with school and your personal life too and you feel its not fair to you. It could also help if you tell them you feel like your childhood is being takin away because you constantly feel like a second mother. But, remember about being nice because you dont want to hurt your own mother and fathers feelings.
Hope this helped a little...
