So I'm 17 and I currently live with my mom and stepdad but I'm moving out soon. Well here lately it seems to be an everyday thing that my stepdad has to make some rude comment about when I'm moving out. Tonight he made a remark to my mom saying he couldn't do it all anymore because i quit my job and I'm not giving him money. I quit because the managers were flirts and if u didn't flirt your hours got cut. But the thing is I don't ask my stepdad for nothing. He don't pay my car insurance give me gas money or buy me what I need. My boyfriend does that. What is a logical reason behind why he does this

Just remember you don't need his approval or his blessing. Keep your head up and know that you did the right thing at your old job. He is not a logical person or he wouldn't have to make you feel bad just to make himself feel better.

Maybe you should give him a reason so he will want you to stay. Know what I'm saying?

First of all TYRONE what you are insinuating is called molestation and is a morally vile thing to do to a child and makes that person a pedophile. Is that what you are?! This young person is asking for advice and you bring this subject up, you should be ashamed of yourself and you know better!! To the young girl who started this I would say your stepdad is obviously still a child himself and he is more than likely jealous of you and your mother. Have you tried to talk with your mom? As soon as I could I would move out and when I did I would let him know and everyone in his life know what a sack of crap he is! You seem like a very bright, strong young woman most teenagers WON'T work or even try. He is always going to have to have something to moan and bitch about, these types always do, you go on in your life and become someone great who loves their life. You living well will show him he didn't get you down and soon he will find someone and something else to complain about, just like little boys do!

There is always two sides to every story.... who paid for your car that you need gas for? If you're not still in school then you have time to work to pay for "what you need". Dad/ or step-dad it doesn't matter you shouldn't expect anything from anyone. If you happen to have parents or a parent that likes to give you everything you will risk not learning important life responsibilities. Plus you will feel much more rewarded when you do things yourself.

1st step is stop looking for sympathy here and stop bashing "stepdad". You can only control how you live your life.

you obviously hare men. I'm sure a few men in your past gave you good reasons, but I think you just have to be more cautious who you chose to be with. Yes, there's a lot of scum out there but when you are patient usually you'll have enough time to weed out the scum before u get hurt.

Out of one side of your mouth you call her a child, Out the other side she is a young women. If both are in agreement it's no body's business what they do. And 17 is hardly a child. You go for it girl do what you need to do.

Now you want to get on here and try to turn this on me instead of the DISGUSTING remarks you posted earlier. This is about a young girl on the verge of turning into a woman. 17 is underage no matter what you say she is obviously very upset about this and she didn't need that remark from you! The fact that I used the term "LITTLE BOY" I think really touched some nerves. The stepfather needs to grow up and there are a lot of men out there these days that need to do just that. In saying that there is a lot of women who need to do the exact same thing, I wasn't posting about men in general I was posting about this ONE stepfather who seems to delight in making her upset and uncomfortable. There are a lot of GREAT stepfathers out there and there are a lot of good men but there are ones that torment also and enjoy doing it. Did not mean to offend ANY men! All I was trying to do is encourage her, she apparently needs it or she wouldn't have put this on topix. Also Tyrone why is it you can post something so disgusting and disturbing and when you decide to reply you turn it around? Just wondering , I mean why did you post that in the first place?

I LMAO at jerks like this and the other kids I see complaining about how bad they've got it. It's the parents' fault; they raise these idiot kids to think their shit don't stink and don't teach them respect, morals, responsibility, or work ethics. You parents are reaping what you sow, doing a shitty job and getting shitty kids.

Thanks Yall and I start college in august with all the classes and stuff I won't have time to work. My mother paid for my car with the money she won in lottery. I have talked to my mom about it but my mom is.disabled and can't work and since she won that money she has no income so she can't leave she says as soon as she gets her ssi back she will leave but until then she can't do nothing and as far as having responsibilities i do have them I had to grow up at a very young age because my mom is so sick. And to tyrone I'm not doin that its nasty i would rather live on the streets but I know mom won't let that happen . I know I have a good head on my shoulders and one day I will succeed and he will regret everything he has ever said to me. I just feel like I'm putting my mom under more stress cuz they are always fighting about me because I'm mommas girl

As a mother there is no way I would let you move out. Is your real dad in the picture? I know some of them are just as bad if not worse than step dads! My husband, my sons stepdad is more of a father to him than his real dad! Hold your head high, it may take all the strength you have but you will be the better person. Give all of it to God, and get your strength from him. Good luck and I'll be praying for you!

I stay single because of stories like these to help my kids as much as I can, I won't even let my kids consider even calling anyone a step dad in the future either, any so called step dad that cross the line will face the wrath.

Sounds like your biggest problem is your mother... she marries jerks.

Im a step father to a 17 yr old young man. I have raised him since he was 6. His real dad is a pos. I have to say being a step dad is hard. It's a no win situation. The mother sides with her child as she should and the child never aknoligizes you as a real parent. You seem like a very smart person for your age and I'm not trying to justify your stepdads actions. I'm sure you will do well in whatever you choose to do. Keep your head up and don't let anyone drag you down. Good luck to you.

I know I will get ppl stirred up by saying this but men will be men. You can't trust them at all! Doesn't matter what age they are or even if they're related to you in some way, they are ALL jerks. You should go to school or get a job and make sure you do everything on your own or with your mom's help. If you do everything and get everything on your own then nobody can take ANYTHING from you. Everything bad that's ever happened to me has had a man behind it. Learn from other ppl's mistakes when u can and it will save you a lot of heartache. Women are very strong and accomplish things a lot easier when they don't have a man holding them back and making it harder on them. Do your thing little sister and don't let anyone get you down! Don't forget to pray and be thankful for everything you receive!

Thanks :) I try to look for the positive in everything but sometime its hard to do with all the stuff I have been.through . I grew up very fast. Iv been raising myself since I was about four. Then when I was 10 or 11 my stepdad came in the picture. And yes he has taken care of me but it seems as I get older he gets meaner toward me we have some good days to tho. Idk y he says some of the things he does to me. My mom is a recovering addict she's been clean for 3 yrs now and since they have been clean me and my stepdad get along better but he gets in those moods to where he's really mean. Thanks for all the support and opinions
