How do I stay behaved?

Me and my mother have A LOT of issues. I mean if I'm not kicked out the house soon, I'll be shocked. I've tried many things but no matter how hard I try, it always fails. HELP ME!!!!!

Only you can decide to act better. Do it for yourself and not for someone you say you don't like. Do you want to end up in jail? That's what happens when you don't obey rules/laws. Try to listen to how you sound when you speak. It sounds as if you are angry about things and act out accordingly. Just make up your mind what kind of person you want to be work on it for you. If this doesn't work for you then maybe you and your therapist could dig a little deeper for the real issues that motivate you to not behave. I believe if you really want to change, and have self motivation to do so, you can do it. Keep trying. Some things may have just become a habit that needs to be broken. Love yourself enough to care what kind of person you become. Don't dwell on past negative problems but on what you are planning to do to bring about the necessary changes. Above all, believe in you and love yourself so self destructive behavior has no room in your life.

She won't kick you out unless you're hitting her, doing drugs in front of her, having sex while she's there, or threatening to kill her. In other words, parents will tolerate the worse behavior before kicking you to the curb. Quit smarting off, obey the rules of the house, and don't fail in school.

I don't know why but I'm more prone to not following the rules. I have had a long history of not liking my mom. I'm adopted and my "father" doesn't do anything for me. He puts me down and makes me feel bad. He told my mom that I was the reason he wasn't paying for my sisters college tuition.... and he is a millionaire

Yours is a familiar story. Unfortunately for some older adults, they never got early counseling and they've lived with abandonment type feelings all their lives from fathers like yours. It's very important for you to stay in counseling so you can grow up to be a mentally healthy adult with stable relationships.
