My childhood was controllingWatch
Even on weekends we had to then on school days I just had do work for hours after school then she let us watch tv for about an hour or 2 before bed. I just wanted to just come home from school and chill like every other kid but my mum wouldnt have that that will ruin our education.
My dad helped he went and bought my brother a game console his birthday after them asking him but we knew full well our mum was going to say no because she banned game consoles are banned from this house which was ridiculous I don’t understand what her issue was with them. She actually got him to return the console back to the shop, me and we’re sibling was so upset over it saying he wants to keep it but my mum made it clear no but my mum made my dad run to the garage with the to lock the box in otherwise my son would unpackaged it. My dad also bought a watch which my mum knew nothing about because we knew she’ll say return it immediately so got my dad to hide it but my mum begged my dad to return it in the end but he paid for it is nothing to do with her, so he then had the tried to argue and say it’s his money and his buying a present for his own son. My mum was begging him to return it so in the end he just did. She kept moaning about money of the gifts I actually makes me upset about the fact my mum thought that was a good idea to take gifts off us. I don’t know what she thinks she was getting him to return all these things. We were financially stable and I can 100% assure they were definitely financially stable. I think it’s terrible to receive presents then get them returned. I know we were financially stable, I have been told now we were financially stable all the way through.
When I was younger things like this used to happen regularly so me and my siblings were asking for a food out to my dad because we very very rarely even got takeaways but my mum said leave it because I’m making the usual food as always, my dad agreed he’s not getting it and told us no. She goes to have a shower for 15 or 20 minutes and we just sneak out in my dads car and my mum come out sees my brother holding a big bag, asks what is in and he don’t say so she keeps asking but still doesn’t say. She actually physically wrestled the bag off him to find what we have got and finds out been to out. So I chucks the food outside in the garden for the birds and made everyone eat her food. I know I should be grateful that we had a house and everything which I understand people have had much worse but that doesn’t change the fact that my mum was controlling. Also because we never had anything like takeaways or anything, I was the skinny kid in school, I found photos of me and my ribs we showing.
I’m just honestly been thinking about all this, this was my childhood we had to go behind her back to get some food and she throws it away considering we barley had food out we always had her food every single day. So yes that was my childhood. We had to work most of the evening after school. We got our gifts returned to the shop. It’s a lot different to other childhoods like my mates. All this happened between 6 years old and the returning gifts stopped but I still got controlled a bit till the age of about 18 maybe 19 then we finally decided to just move out so we live separate from our mum now and things are better. There’s more to all this as well but this would be a long thread if I said everything but there is quite a bit more to all this and it does include physical and emotional abuse so it really wasn’t good.
