Am I being unreasonable?
I am 17 and have 2 jobs. I earn £140 a week on average whilst at sixth form. I have to give my mom £20 a week (but that is not enough and thinks I should be giving her at least £80)
I have to buy my own books and clothes etc, which is fine.
I will also have to pay for my own driving lessons which will be over £80 a month, however I cannot start them as my mom says they are all too expensive, but I cant find no cheaper. Then my mom complains and calls me lazy etc.
Today I told her I was joining the gym and she started shouting at me calling me selfish and how the gym is pointless etc and in the next breath will tell me Im fat and need to lose weight.
She also keeps telling me I need to move out, because she did at 19 and she tells me Im selfish like my dad and that my dad doesnt love me and everything.
What can I do?
All my mom cares about is money and she is quite selfish and not loving to me at all as her daughter.
She doesnt even want me to go to uni as she says its expensive and a waste of time.
My mom earns £45,000 a year which is quite good, as well as bonuses.
I cannot deal with all this stress. Also, although she cares about money too much, she gets mad at me for working. I can never win. She also always complains about me to people and makes me look really bad, like she is a perfect mother.
