It sounds as though your mother has expectations that are beyond what is reasonable. You may never be able to "please" her, so you mustn't even try. You can only do the best you can. And don't believe for one second that what's happening is your fault; it isn't your fault. This is on your mother. She is troubled and sick in her way of thinking. I don't have any hotlines to offer you for where you live, but if there are counselors at school or others you can talk to, I strongly recommend you do. You don't deserve to be mistreated. You deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

It's not right
by: Anonymous

What your mother is doing is not right. You really should talk to a counselor. There is a place in Singapore called Tinkle Friend Helpline.

You don't deserve to be treated the way you are.

From Darlene: Although Tinkle Friend Helpline is a legitimate hotline in Singapore, I understand it's only for children ages 7 - 12 years of age. Their phone number is free: 1800 274 4788

How old are you??
by: Anonymous0828

If you are still very young I sugggest getting out!! I believe this is good advice because you don't need to stay with your mother even though she is your mother, if she is sick in her thinking. You DO NOT deserve to be treated like that!! Love yourself always and get help for her and yourself by telling someone how you are treated and let them know what is going on, don't be afraid of your mother and what she may do to you, you need OUT!!

Don't give up
by: Sharky

If you've read all these paragraphs, then you know how many people are rooting for you. Although I've never had the same problems as you, do not, DO NOT, let your mother control you, now now, not ever. Be your own person, and if you show the world what you're made of, then I'm sure that you'll make it. Sometimes life gets you down; it's true for everybody. It's what you do in that moment of truth that makes all the difference. I say: no matter what happens, love finds a way to live forever. If not with your mother, then with someone else. Whenever someone tries to bring you down, be sure to smile inside and say, "I'm still here. And I WILL stand." :)
