I am feeling very down at the moment.I am sitting here with no money, wokring in a part-time job and not in any education. When I get paid on Friday alot of my money is going to pay my new season ticket for the football(soccer) club I love. My house is a disgusting mess alot of the time, im living with my dad, sister and 2 brothers. My smallest brother is 5 and I feel so bad that he is being brought up in a house this state.We do have a social worker but my dad tells them not to come so they don't see the state of the house, he lies by saying hes busy.I need a bit of advice please.
Feeling very down
Sometimes you have to make sacrifices in life, and do things you don't want to do, i'm talking about the club your in. I think necessities for you and your family come before diversion. I think your being a little selfish here, if you really cared about your family you would do your best to help them out.
LOVE that advice Rad!! I have always had chores for everyone, but now that I enforce it better. Our house is always clean. Not spotless, like I would like, but I have counter space to prepare meals and stuff, and you can get up and go to the bathroom with out light and not trip on some stray thing.All it is, is about 20-minutes to 1.5 hrs per day of everyone doing their part. It would be 20 minutes, if everyone did their part EVERY day.To the OP:I am not going to hop up and say it is a childs responsibility to take care of the rest of the family. But if it is bothering you that they don't have enough, maybe you should, give up the club this year, and show the little ones some "good stuff" in life. You might enjoy that more than the club!!!
