    I’m a 15 year old girl and I have a problem and I don’t know who to turn to. My mother is completely, utterly irresponsible and impatient and more like the child than the mother. I feel like I’m always the parent to her. I always have to constantly remind her to not talk so loudly in public and it’s really embarrassing. She has the absolute shortest temper I’ve ever come across in my whole life. The whole world has to revolve around her or she’ll stomp around the house and slam doors and break anything she gets her hands on.

    For example, today, I was on my mother’s email, helping her print out a copy of an email a travel agent emailed her (we’re going on a cruise in august, god help me.), and the laptop suddenly froze momentarily, and I was waiting for it to load. My mother was sitting next to me and asked me why I wasn’t doing anything, and I responded, granted a little irritatingly and told her why. I’d had a terrible day today, and it was noticeable, I was stressed and I definitely looked like it and I was also working on my 4 hours worth of english homework, but she didn’t care. She instantly snapped and slammed the laptop shut on me and almost closed my hands in it and just stomped off screaming about how I never put my whole heart into doing anything for her, and how I only cared about myself.

    I do everything for her. I have all her banking information, her credit card information, I even have her social security number memorized because I schedule all the payments for the bills, I make phone calls with questions to insurance companies and about bills and such. I do her laundry for her, I remind her to do things, I clean her bathroom and my own, I even wash the floors, the dishes, vacuum, and start dinner so when she gets home she won’t have to do as much work because I know that she works hard at her own job. I even do the yardwork and schedule doctor’s appointments for her and call in to get her prescription for her manic depression medication.

    But I just want her to show some appreciation sometimes. I’ve lately come to really hate being around my mother because all she does is point out my faults and mistakes and weaknesses and amplifies them to the point where I don’t even eat anymore so I can stay thin, and I spend all my time studying so I can keep my good grades. And it’s still not enough for her.

    She’s so childish and selfish it’s not even funny. She’s willing to spend 2000 dollars on a handbag, but isn’t willing to spend 1500 of tuition for me to attend an art school, when she knows I’m very talented in art and I want to do something with that in my future. When things don’t go the way she wants and she isn’t treated like the queen of england, she throws a fit. And I mean a FIT. She screams and cries and drops to the ground and thrashes around like a child and even goes as far as to run away and book hotel rooms to cause drama. Believe me, this has happened more than a couple times.

    I never used to mind helping my mother with things, I know I owe it to her for all the things she’s done for me. But lately, I’ve become sick and tired of her behavior. I feel like I’m 30 years older then I really am, and I really just want to enjoy my teenage years and be able to go out with friends and have fun without my mother lurching behind my back and accusing me of being a bad kid when I’m really not.

    I love my mother, don’t get me wrong, I just sometimes feel like she doesn’t love me. Like I’m just a servant to her and that I’m not even her daughter. Mothers are supposed to make you feel comfortable and confident and support you but my mother’s the exact opposite. I always feel extremely uncomfortable around her because she’ll always point out my flaws and publicly and loudly declare them. And she’s also made comments about my weight. I’m 5’6″ and 117 pounds and she tells me I need to lose weight. And as much as I wish it didn’t affect me, it does. I’ve stopped eating as much as I used to. I’ll eat a hardboiled egg for breakfast, skip lunch, and have as small a dinner as possible. I know it’s bad, but I can’t help it. And my mother’s never been there to support me. She’s never come to my concerts when I play in the school band, she’s never come to see me perform in my school musicals, and she never comes to any of my meets or lacrosse games. She even skimped out on coming to an art show opening at my school which featured 45 pieces of my photography.

    I don’t know what to do, I’m losing my patience with her, I’m starting to hate my mother.

    Credit cards are becoming more and more picky about extending credit, and the interest rates are through the roof. What are some other ways I can establish solid credit without a credit card or major expenses? I go to college full time and work full time, I don’t want to get into heavy debt.

    I believe bank fees are driven by greed and hold banks like Bank of America responsible for creating some of our economic woes with their raising of credit card fees in the past, laying off workers, and more even after receiving stimulus. How can this be after all we have learned? It is pure greed…

    The banks, car companies, etc., should be paying the people in the USA back in appreciation for the stimulus, yet all I see is more greed. Anyone that ever charged over 15% int. should pay back to those who they took it from as well as fees, etc. I am one consumer that will not put up with them treating me this way. These words need to get out!

    I have some ideas for bringing the economy back:

    Has anyone talked about a building a super infrastructure for combining a Super train like a rollercoaster on pipes, water transmission, natural gas transmission, electric transmission, data transmission all in one structure combining bids/companies to promote and pay for to renew our system helping relieve the skies, roads, and more? There are a lot of wonderful ideas out here for resolving some issues, but do we have a real forum like this for sharing these ideas with our leaders?

    What impact does closing credit cards have on your credit score?
    I have a number of credits that I am not using. What impact if any would closing some of these accounts have on my credit score?

  • Jacinto says:

    I hate credit cards, but need to build credit. I would like to have a prepaid credit card and a normal fico building credit card. No annual fee of course. Then I will spend up to my prepaid cards limit on the credit card and pay off the credit card every month with the amount on the prepaid. Genius or problems?

  • Agatha says:

    My account was closed by the bank due to number of credit cards I have and high balance. I will be able to close all in 6 months. Can other banks close my credit card accounts as well? What is the best way to handle it?
    Thanks for the answers but my problem is:

    I have one card which was closed by the bank and limit on one other were reduced. I am afraid that this will create a “domino effect” and all other banks will start to close my accounts. How possible is this? Another question is: how bad will the effect of a closed account by the creditor will be on my credit history?

    Thanks guys for your answers

  • Humberto says:

    I have three credit cards but only use one, and pay it off in full every month. I am planning on making a big purchase at Best Buy and can save a lot of money if I open a credit card with the purchase. (I believe like 20% which would be almost $150). I would never use that card again.

    Is it bad for my credit rating to have credit cards that I never use?
