Just be nice. Talk about things you enjoy at school, keep it positive. You'd be amazed, a little kindness goes a long way.

Being nice really rules. Keep the positive attitude. A new confidence fills me because I'm noticing really good strategies and ideas coming from those around your age.

Talk to your mom more but be nice and say what's on your mind. Try to say sorry too. Good luck.

Listen to the tone of voice you use when communicating with her. Are you being short and disrespectful.. Then stop..... Is she being unreasonable in your opinion? Talk to your school nurse.. They're pretty smart, and can direct you towards help.

You need to apologize to her. That would be step one. Step two don't have an attitude . Step three actually put effort into your relationship with your mother . A relationship is only as good as two people make it . Please don't grow apart from your mom she is the one person that is truly there for you . If she's anything like my mom though I couldn't blame you for not wanting to have anything to do with her. Good luck

Very good Shane, and such nice advice... But what's wrong with you and your mom?
Report as
She is just one of those People that is absolutely not receptive to anything and I'm not exaggerating . She is also not very good company she just says what's wrong with me and tries to make me feel dumb. She doesn't know how to show affection or remorse if something happened its your fault not hers . Not to mention sadly I could show you how many times she has hugged me on my fingers.
Report as
I just cut my connection with her. She has hurt me I forgave her , but just because you forgive someone that doesn't mean you have to talk to them.

I'm so sorry Shane. If you are still in school please see the school nurse. they are trained in these matters. And remember, It's not your mom's fault... She cannot give what she doesn't have. Love her anyway. It will build you up.
Report as
Oh I'm building myself up as a person I don't need her . I know what I'm worth and I am learning how to show affection and what it means to love. I live with my dad now and am very happy I'm not sad or anything .

Just remember Shane, Something snapped for your mom.. She is probably suffering more than you know. Pride keeps us from letting on to our family and friends. She probably cries herself to sleep every night. Your dad probably understands.. Ask him about these things.
Report as
I really doubt she cries . I have only seen her cry once in my life and that is not a joke .

But I see what your saying

If you do not agree with what she says: KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT. I get in plenty of arguments with my mom because we disagree. If you have nothing positive to say, do not say anything.

Ok listen to me lol. I'm 21 I'm a mom now and use to the biggest rebel fun chick ever. My mom was the Sargent I let her run things because its much easier. If you do what they ask n make them happy... You can get what ever you want. Plus one day when your older And have your own kids, your mom is gunna most likely be your only friend.

Talk about the positive things. It is possible. Trust me. Being 5 and abused by my mom shattered the relationship. But now at age 14 we are good. Moved on to bigger and better things. Focus on the happy and if you feel yourself start to get frustrated or angry. Walk away.. Better to walk away then fight
