    I'm 16 and the only person I know without a job. My mum won't let me. I have no money for myself I practically have to beg my stepdad every other week for a tenner and most of it has to go on food. I never ask my mum to buy me anything because she works and works for her money, but I just wish she wouldn't control my life like this. Whenever I go out with my friends on a Saturday, she makes me feel so guilty for leaving her home alone, but that's not my problem that she doesn't go out and doesn't have friends. I hate this so much, all I want is to be independent and have money for myself so I can buy nice things, it just upsets me that she won't allow me and makes me spend all my free time with her.

    you need to tell her that
