I've endured mental abuse from my mother for years and it has gotten very hard, since I am 16 I'm seen as a child "acting out" but HONESTLY I'm not. I don't smoke,drink or party. Straight A student even made honor role twice and I'm trying to graduate early this year! I have a boyfriend , who I've known for 6 years and my mother also knows him. We are 2 years apart. He has not changed how I act and he isn't some wild boy, he works as a security guard and is perusing a career in law enforcement. So there's no bad influence there, after graduating I plan on going to college for journalism and business. I haven't been hurt by my mother just mentally abused ,and it causes me to get depressed and stressed , I'm scared. I'm being misunderstood. And I'm not bad ! I'm not I just want to graduatelong..story
You need to find a counsellor to talk about your problems. At this point, it doesn't sound like you need an attorney, although there is an emancipation process. Find a counsellor through your school, family, or friends so you can talk about these concerns. Use a phone book, web search, or if you cannot find anything, I'm attaching a link to a free clinic where you can find someone to offer assistance.
