Had the Chat
Hi

I spoke to my mom about everything last night and she says she sees it all the time but that they ask me because i will not moan like my sister does and i will do it even if i don't want to. My mom says that i am the stronger one so i should just deal with it. When it comes to my sister my mom says that they cannot change how she is and that i must just accept things the way they are (wish i could) my mom says she also doesn't agree with my sisters behaviour but she cant do anything about it!!!!
But i feel like i wasted my time saying anything!!!!

OH AND ABOUT THE RENT: My mother actually got cross when i spoke about paying rent. she said that my sister didn't have to pay rent so why should i. She also said that as long as i live under their roof she will support me... I buy all my other stuff, just dont pay rent or water!!!

Thanks for all the advise yesterday, especially to Echelle and Kathy (sorry i got so worked up with you Echelle)

Hmmm, continue the chats. Remind her that it is not wise to punish people for behaving well --- so your sister is taught to whine, and encouraged to always do so, and you are expected to suffer in silence ? And besides, unless she and your father are severaly handicapped, why can't they do some of the chores themselves ? Why should you be treated badly jyust because you are supposedly "strong" ?
