    I dropped out of college in January because I hated it, since them I've literally searched everything for something to do there's no jobs, no courses I would want to do and enjoy and there's hardly any apprenticeships. I've had so many arguments with my mum because she gets money off my dad each month (they divorced when I was 3 and I haven't seen him since) and she's scared that it'll stop but she blames me saying that I have to go to college or we'll be homeless or something. I hated college and I've tried other courses but hated them equally. I have a job but I hate that too (retail is not fun) I've got an interview for an apprenticeship where I'd get £125 a week working 9-5 literally 5 minutes away but my mum says I'd have to give her £100 of it weekly so she'd still get money and I just feel too pressured to be someone bring in money into the house. She works as a nurse and gets a good amount of money yet she's always asking me for money and never giving me it back. I love her but she's making me cry pretty much everyday and I've left it so late for colleges so I'm scared, please help!!

    I understand your concern as she is your mother and probably also the world to you. Being the one to finance the family is hard especially in your case. What i suggest is that you explain to her how you feel about all of this. And hopefully come to an agreement as to how you divide your money. Tell her that as a young adult, you can't bear being in this situation and ask her what she would've done in your place.
