I'm 16 And I Need To Move Out Of My Parents' Home
I'm just a girl who doesn't get along with my parents. It started when I was thirteen years old and now I'm sixteen.
My parents and I don't get along because I get blamed for literally everything. I'm the middle child, I have two siblings. My oldest sibling is twenty-four and my youngest is thirteen. My parents get along with them very well.
My brother who is the oldest doesn't live with us anymore and he does as he pleases but they have really never had a problem with him expect maybe one time when my dad choked him out and got sent to jail for being abusive.
I think it might be my parents’ fault and how they think things should be done. That's not how you parent. My mom curses at me all the time and she's tried to hit me before.
She smokes marijuana so I don't know if that's part of the problem with our relationship but every time she loses or misplaces money she instantly blames it on me. She calls me a "fucking bitch" and other worse things.
I can only take so much and my dad just agrees with her. They're horrible parents. I can't stand to live here anymore but I'm only sixteen and can't legally move out but I have nowhere to go because my family doesn't really care about me. Like none of them.
They've told me to get out of their house before and I would if I had the chance because I'm a strong girl and I could definitely do it, I just have nowhere to go.
What should I do? I can't continue to live here. For one thing, their house is really dirty. They never clean and get angry when I try to clean and they say I don't clean right. I'm so done with this. My parent and me are nothing alike. I don't know what to do anymore.
