I'm not family. This is not how family treats each other. As for me sleeping around, I don't but thanks.for confusing me with my stepmother. Apparently she is.obsessed with me all she ever does is write statuses about me. She downgrades me because I have contact with my mom. Obviously if my dad was a man he would choose his kids over a woman any day but I guess he proved me wrong. Where was I suppose to go when they kickedme out at 17!? Huh answer that! I just don't understand how everything is ALWAYS my fault no matter the situation.
Sis, you seem to be the obsessive one right now. I sense resentment, anger, and a feeling of extreme loss just from your words. Listen and believe this! Everything is not always your fault, but you are responsible for your actions as much as you are about your thoughts and you've allowed them your thoughts to become negative and your actions to be spiteful. How old are you?

You know what I see, I see someone reaching out for help in the only way adolescents seem to know how to, by degrading others! She's hurt and at a vulnerable stage in her life but instead of being offered compassion and understanding, she's being ABANDONED!

Are you really only 17 Taylor?

Also, for the stepmother to get on here and behave no better than an adolescent herself, it makes her just as immature! I've met some stepmothers from hell through my friends who completely disregarded and disrespected the feelings of their spouses children. How old are you Stepmom?

By the way, ANYONE leaning towards physical violence is displaying a lack of SELF CONTROL!

People who argue, do so because they don't want to give up on FAMILY, and I sense Taylor deeply loves her family, otherwise she might have run away along time ago instead of trying to cope with not only the hormonal changes that comes with adolescence, but also family structure. Staci, for someone who is in her 30's you're very childish to push someone away from her own Dad!

Brittany, it's nice that your Mom gets on here and defends you, but you need to consider the challenges Taylor has faced because everyone copes differently. For someone so great, your language is foul in a few of your posts and your lacking a lot of compassion. Have you considered it's not freedom so much as it is family that Taylor treasures?

It's good to be loved Brittany, and I'm glad you are, but you don't sound like a very loving person to me. Granted you're on the defensive and I understand that, but just because someone is 18 and classified as an adult doesn't mean they are mentally and emotionally mature. Taylor is afflicted and if Staci is the stepmother, then it sounds more like teens fighting than a grown woman looking out for someone who became a part of your family when you married her Dad. IGNORANCE doesn't make the problem go away!

You admit that your family with Brittany and others, but deny your own stepdaughter her place in the family, and I find that a shame!

You don't need Jerry Springer! That's for trash and NONE OF YOU ARE TRASH!

Before any of you go telling me it's none of my business, consider how much family means to you before you go abandoning, and allowing each other to be abandoned, especially with as chaotic as the world has become! Family needs each other, and I know how it feels to be a part of a family that does nothing but put each other down, but change will only happen if everyone makes the effort! I know for a fact that for a family to hold it together, they have to learn to lift each other up instead! Forgiveness is needed first and foremost, and those who have the most loving hearts are the ones who have the greatest advantage because those who forgive are the ones who don't wind up feeling all alone.

I don't know any of you, but I think all of you deserve to be happy.

I mean honestly, you really have no idea what is going on..the "stepmother" has been there since DAY one of her life!Staci isnt the problem..She tried getting help for her, and she kept getting turned down and looked down apoun.

In the blink of an eye all of this can be taken from you. Then who will be the ones sitting back getting ganged up on? Internet trash and no words can describe how little you all look. So sad. I have seen these same people on another site try to internet bully people around when in fact, I know these people. They dont know me, but I know them. They are helpless individuals. They are resentful, angry, sad, lonely, self-destructive people. I believe the two maybe three children left in the home should be looked upon by state authorities if this behavior doesn't change. I will make it my mission to see that this is done. God Bless

I know more than the eyes hold. That's all you need to know. I have seen dysfunction in this family since they were kids. Then they become "adults" and have their own. If someone doesn't intervene soon, then their kids are going to be just as dysfunctional. There are already signs. It goes way back before their grandma passed. It's terrible.

It is more of a concern to me than you can ever imagine. And if they don't all get together and try to build their family problems, soon, then I'll have no other choice. I've watched them grow up together. I've seen the turmoil within the family and I've seen many good times too. Their grandma-mom-sister-aunt is crying up in Heaven over how the family has torn so far apart. It's never too late to fix this. But there are a chosen few who keeps causing havoc upon their family. Those are the few that need to take a few steps back and rethink. Change character. Change ideas of what a family bond truely holds. Until then, i'm standing my ground

it doesnt matter what u think and what u think u can fix.its family issues and no one can fix them if they dont want to be fixed.they have a right to chose who they talk to and who they dont and no one can do anything about this.they are adults and can make there own choices and some have made there choices and thats where they stand.who ever wants to get involved can cause NO ONE can do anything.families tear apart everyday and the mistakes is when other ppl get involved when it dont concern them which makes it worse.we r adults and we do as we want not what were told or what other ppl thanks.

Your input is fine. Hasn't and won't change my mind or the fact that a few need to be taught that in life, you can run from your troubles but you can not hide from them. When authority feels they have to step in, then authority will step in. You have a blessed day.
