Question: Dear Luise: I hate my mom. She is often mad at me, too. Sometimes I think she hates me. R.
Answer: Dear R.: Mom’s can be a pain at times. I agree with that. Yet kids without moms often have it worse than you do. Moms can sometimes come in handy.
Many kids get disgusted and when they think they can survive, they hit the streets. Most of them find out that it’s worse out there, not better.
As long as you are stuck with your mom, try to stay out of her way and don’t keep making it worse.
The day will come when you can manage your own life and you may end up doing a lot better job than she has. Watch and learn. Blessings, Luise
