My mother is 75 is now exhibiting signs of dementia, and within couple of yrs at the rate she is going will need to be in the care of a home or someone else. As I stated, what her particular arrangements are I do not know, she has not told me but since she is fastidious about keeping everything else in order I'm sure that it has been decided. I DO NOT CARE if I have control over her, ok? It is good enough for me to see the woman who has been perfect in everything she has done, have control over everything and everyone to finally be out of control. It makes no difference to me whether that is good enough for you, because it IS good enough for me and that is all that matters.
I am not completely ignorant, the courts would never grant me conservatorship because of my health; I have one brother that lives just across the street and my other is right down the road, I told you this is a small community not a big city.
I do wish you well.
"My revenge is doing the things that she could never do."
actually I believe that is a bit of a misquote, because I said something more to the effect that it hurts her more to seee me doing the things that she said I would never do.
Of course that's all that matters, if it is good enough for you..if it really is.


I wish you well, too.

But I will say one thing...where your mother is concerned, you're a much nicer person than I am.

The thing is, your position seems to be that parents have a right to use their children for free forced labor for two hours a day, a few hours a week or something, as long as the kid still has time to play, go to school, do homework, etc.

No. That is not really addressing the issue. Even if the kid still has time to play, do homework, go to school, etc., the parent should not have the right to use a child for slave labor ANY, AT ALL.

As long as the kid picks up after himself, does his own laundry, makes his own meals, washes his own dishes, etc., the parent should not be allowed to force the kid to do any more.

Parents have no right to say, "well, you have some free time, so I will steal it from you."

After all these pages, and all this rambling and vague tantruming, you still never addressed the issue.

Any more is slave labor, and slave labor of ANYONE is ABUSE.

If you think dumping on your kid can't make your kid grow up to hate you, think again. I have never told my mother how I feel about her, and why, because it's not sociably acceptable. I just avoid her as much as possible, and it's for the same reason. I was her dumping ground for the yardwork, housework, clean garage, etc, and never any pay..she thought I owed her.

But there should be more laws to protect children while they are still under 18, living in their parents houses. They should not be allowed to beat them, rape them, or USE THEM FOR FREE FORCED LABOR.

I can see why you hate your mother. I am the oldest and I have to stay home all summer and babysit while my single mother works. She should not have had all these kids and I am the one who has to work because she did it.

Maybe someday there will be a bill of rights for children living at home with their irresponsible parents.

In one of the midwestern states, I forget which one, there is a law that says you can not make your children work for their room and board. That is very effective, because then, parents have to at least pay the kid, or have him work for extra allowance or things that he wants, like a bicycle or computer. They can't say you have to do chores "just because you live here".

If other states would enact such laws, that would at least be a start.

I put in Google, "I hate my mother" and this came up. I must say, the attitudes of people in the midwest seem more backward than the ones in California or Chicago or New York. They also still think beating your kids is ok.

No, no one should be used for forced labor or hit, unless hitting is absolutely necessary.

When I was working my way through school, I worked as a babysitter, maid, or cleaning girl for many people, many of them very successful..so I was in a lot of houses with a lot of families..the most successful ones are NOT making their kids clean the house, etc. They are more concerned with academic success, etc., and their kids future.

I started this thread three years ago when I was pissed at my mom. Something I'm prone to do every once in a while. Can't believe it's still on the front edge of conversation.

I remember discussions that kids shouldn't have to work. Bull crap. I see 16 year old boys sitting on their ass playing video games while someone comes in and mows the yard for $65 a week. Absolutely ridiculous. I don't know what is going to come of young people who have to do NOTHING when they finally have to do SOMETHING.

I know, they won't. They will live at home their whole lives. This is what you can look forward too for the coming generation.

I still look in here occasionally too.

If the parent wants the damn lawn mowed, he should have to mow it himself, or hire someone else to do it. He should not be allowed to just FORCE his kid to do it for free. No one should be allowed to own a slave.

But if the parent can pay someone to mow someone 65 dollars to mow the lawn, why can't he pay his kid the money, and let the kid learn that he can make money and how to use a bank account, checkbook, etc???? If the neighbor deserves to be paid, then so should your kid get paid. Most kids would love to EARN money that way.

My objection is to slave labor. That is, "you do it or I will punish you". No one should be allowed to do that.

well it's really hard to get kids to do anything these days

I didn't read all of the posts but what are you considering slave labor? Babysitting younger siblings while the single mother works to provide you with a roof over your head and food in your stomach is NOT slave labor.

A child helping clean the house and having chores is not slave labor. Slave labor would be if the parent didn't work and just forced the child to do all the housework or didn't provide the child with food and water and electric and other such necessities.

My parents were both scumbags. It isn't my word, it's the word a therapist used to describe them to me after I'd seen him for a few years.

My parents never taught me a damned thing in the house but to shut up and go away. I can not remember my father once touching me when it didn't cause pain. Not once.

My father would swat me hard in the head whenever he wanted to. Even at the dining table. And if I asked him why he hit me, my mother would tell me to stop disturbing the family.

They insisted on sending me into a factory job, working nights in Times Square, when I was 17. I had no choice. I would leave the house crying.

They finally threw me out of the house after an argument about whether I could use the car. It was January, and they threw me out of the house and threw my clothes out into the snow after me.

I never went back. My parents are true scumbags.
