    Basically my family is in huge debt and my dad is being lazy and not doing much about it, he just keeps playing candy crush all the time on his computer, he also spends way too much on anything and everything, he buys to much unnecessary things :/ which of course doesn't help. My mom is super stressed about everything and the fact we have no money left, i.e. they might have to pull me out of boarding school next year. The situation at home is horrible and although it looks as if our house is ok we have no money. My dad abuses pretty much everyone in the house besides the cousin i have who's decided to come or here, at one time or another.(not physical just lots of loud shouting) My mum gets the worst with my dad and her getting into arguments 24/7. of course my dad's always wrong from everything i hear from my mum. I have no reason to believe my mum's lying otherwise she wouldn't be an emotional wreck.

    All in all is there anything i can do to get some huge financial help without having to pay back a loan of some sort?

    Sounds like your dad isn't taking well to the financial stress he is under. An intervention of sorts might be necessary. Try cut any unnecessary spending, shop at a cheaper place, and stick to essentials. If you are getting harrassed by the repayment companies for what your owe them then I suggest trying to work out a plan, pay a certain amount each week, and getting in touch with some free debt help services and possibly even the Citizen's Advice Bureau.

    Hope things work out. It is incredibly stressful being a kid in a home in financial pressure.

    Why do you need HUGE financial support? Wouldn't you be satisfied with something that can just cover 'enough'?

    Note to self; don't play candy crush.

    DUDE he's f**king playing candy crush and watching flims as he pleases he doesn't give a f**k about earning more money, he lazy af.
    he won't you can't persuade him either you can be right but that doesn't change anything because it's basically an autocracy he holds in the house where what he does and says goes.
    I don't think we are but thing is no money :/, we're at pretty much rock bottom

    I would think in your situation its really up to your dad to take control of his situation and get his finances in order. It may be as you say you have no income, but he could potentially remortgage the house to release some equity. I have a feeling you dont know the full extent of his debts and so the situation may be more fragile and he is prevented from raising capital. It may be they cnat pay the school fees and you do indeed have to be withdrawn. The only thing I cna think of is the school may have bursaries or scholarships and you could explore the chance they might reduce fees. You might wnat to discuss this with your mum.

    Im sure they wouldnt withdraw you except as a last resort, but as your family is facing a very difficult time, then on what youve said its a possibiliy. If it were me I would plan for it happening sio I knew what to do if it did and it causes minimum dispruption. You dont say what year you are in. i'd be tempted to talk to a teacher i could trust about your concerns and take their guidance so that if you did have to leave you left with enough texts and work you could survive on your own for a while.

    If yu are unsure then ring childline to chat in confidence with a counselor.

    Why do you need money when mentioning your father's laziness, I don't think it would solve anything, except him having additional diamonds in game.

    Selfish.

    But impressive, why would you call me selfish?

    Oh, you've said something about boarding school and I thought it was the only reason you've asked for advice/financial support.

    No, impressive you're wrong.

    Okay, I was wrong.

    well it's for my brother and I's fees for school, so technically it's us who really need the money but someone needs to earn it first.
