Right I’m a full time college student working towards completing my sleeves and in the meantime I work part time at McDonald’s. I’ve started earning an hourly rate of £8.25 as I worked my ass off to get to crew trainer over these past months as well as college. I paid fortnightly rent of £20 which is reasonable, however, now I’m earning £2.50 more and want to work a shift in the weekday as well as weekends my mum no wants £20 a week to her and £10 a week to my stepdad while she expects me to pay for my own phone bill, for people to use Netflix in the house and save up for a car and insurance?

I don’t know if I sound like a child but I’m getting sick of it now it’s like she forgets I’m actually her child and not a tenenat while I also do stuff around the house, cook my own food, etc. What’s other people’s view on this?

£30 in total is nothing. Just wait till you move out into the real world and you have actual bills and council tax to pay.

What are you in college? I’m 17 years old I don’t really have a choice on whether to move out or not I don’t even know my dad so that’s not even an option for me

Yeah I know but that’s still £120 a month along with my phone bill, Netflix that my mum says I should pay and she moaning at me to save up and get a car and insurance?

Tell her she's being unreasonable. You're earning a bit of pocket money on the side of A-Levels. Don't understand the expectation of money from your children as soon as they start working.

Your mam gave birth to you. Its her God given right to ask of you for a small amount of cash. Sheesh, you sound so spoilt.

Yeah I’m fine with that but £120 a month on top of everything else I have to pay is getting too much. Especially when she moans about not having a job for the moment and not having much money but she easily has £1000 saved and easily able to buy 8 bottles of wine for herself every Friday

I repeat, just wait till you have to pay proper bills. For a lot of people the only time they are able to save money is when they live at home with their parents - make the most of it while you can.

Absolute rubbish, working hard at A-Levels and expecting to keep a chunk of their own money from their side job isn't any criteria for "spoilt".

£1000 is literally nothing when you're running a household. If she's not working you should help out tbh. How much are you earning?
