    Neglected

    I'm a 13 yo female and I feel as if I'm neglected by my mother. I'm a middle child. I have a 15 yo brother and a 9 yo sister.my brother never comes out of his room, he is always playing video games, never leaves the house and never does chores. My little sister is to young to do most of the chores in our house so I do most of them, yet my mother yells at me the most for being "lazy " and being on my phone "too much". She also cares less about my health. I got very sick on Christmas Eve and I'm still sick now but when I first got sick she didn't even call a doctor for two weeks. (Im still sick now and we don't now why and I haven't seen many doctors) but once in vacation in Florida my sister complained once ONCE that her ear hurt a little. My mom took her the urgent care as soon as they opened. I'm never physically abused but I feel emotionally abused sometimes like my mom will yell at me often and when I try to speak to her about feeling treated differently from my siblings she just gets mad. But she's not always mean, like I get bullied often and she'll comfort me when I do get bullied. The problem now is I want braces. My teeth are crooked and sometimes they move and hurt. I told my mom but she thinks I only want them because one person in my class got them. I don't know what to do because my dentist closes at 2 pm and all day to my mom has been saying she'll call before 2 but I'm typing this at 2:10 crying because she never called for me but she called to make my sister a cleaning appointment and we have the same dentist.

    RE: Neglected

    Hi Do we take it you have no dad at home? you need to find some kind of local child help line and talk it through with them even go and see them if you can get away. OK

        : it's not so bad I need to get away. I just want to know what I can do to get her to care for me as much as my siblings

        : no I have a Dad but he is at work before we wake up and doesn't get home until 4pm but he usually then goes out to the country to help his parents with stuff around their house.

        Hi So an idea, if your home when your dad gets home, try spending some time with him, ask him to wait for you, and slowly bring up your problems with the way your mother treats you and not your brother.

        Chores around the house should be shared out and not done by just you, 50/50 is the best way,

        Bur if you can get your Dad to help you over this problem with Mum, but think of doing this for a couple of weeks and slowly bring it up, not straight away.
